There can be no... More

We visited here for Sunday lunch and decided to go with the specials board. The Jerusalem Artichoke soup with chorizo was delicious followed by the Sea Bream with roasted celeriac and cavolo nero. We made room for the syrup sponge with vanilla custard and clotted cream ice cream. The whole meal was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient... More
