What a pleasant surprise - fabulous food impeccably served. Really impressed that for each delicious dish there was a vegetarian option as well. We loved the home-made condiments and could not resist purchasing a couple to enjoy again.

Fabulous freshly baked breads and cakes, incredibly delicious breakfast, also a nice quaint stop for tea or coffee. You can also purchase some lovely keepsakes or souvenirs at the front shop. Highly recommend stopping by if you are in town.
