Just had a meal here. Delicious you can taste the freshness of the food. All cooked to order. Host and hostess lovely. If you want a great meal in relaxed surroundings and your not in a hurry then this is the place to try.

Really excellent family lunch - daily specials were first rate (chicken in the oven w/rosemary potatoes, stuffed aubergines), as were the mixed appetisers (see photo!).
