This restaurant (with rooms) doesn't look much from the front but the rooms are lovely and very comfortable. Everything you need for a short stay and lovely toiletries too. We stayed for my birthday meal with friends and the food was excellent - very well...More

Fantastic food - Beautifully presented! The service is really good but nicely informal. We had a fabulous evening and will hopefully return whenever we have a special occasion to celebrate.

Lovely french restaurant, with very nice interior. Super meal with paired wines. Loved especially smoked tomato soup with goat cheese and olives and the beef main. Staff friendly and prompt would definitely recommend.
