Lunch with friends in this small and casual restaurant was brilliant. Great value and a massive surprise- from the outside, small and simple. Inside, "cosy" is a word that could be used, "comfortable" possibly less so, but the food is excellent- simple variations on old favourites, perfectly presented through the best quality ingredients and great service. Fair value for money,... More

This is a great place and the food is beautifully cooked with real flair. The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient, yet didn't get in the way.

We had a late Valentine's supper because this wee restaurant is so popular we hadn't booked early enough to get a table for the 14th Feb We were brought iced water without asking, always a good sign. Excellent rolls with balsamic flavoured oil also without asking. We ordered a bottle of the house red, a South African Pinotage, which was... More

First visit to this restaurant thanks to Xmas vouchers. Surroundings are rustic but filled with character, front of house was fantastic and the food was excellent. We opted for the 3 course set menu which was great value. Don't let the choice put you off; it's not your normal fare but everything was cooked to perfection and tasted great. We'll... More

The staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. The restaurant was lovely and decorated well. It's very small but nice. I would say that as a gay couple, and the closeness of the tables, meant that the table next to us seemed to look at us uncomfortably throughout the evening which was a little bit of a shame but I've come...

A social visit with friends I hadn't seen for a while so was under pressure to pick somewhere good. I didn't go wrong with my choice of No.16. The restaurant is small but perfectly formed with a varied menu which represented excellent value for a long lunch with friends. Everyone enjoyed their meals from starters through to deserts. The house... More

Small, cosy with a low key friendly service and mid range prices, I was not prepared for the outstanding quality and variety on the menu. All three courses were sublime. Fishcakes, pork belly and a pudding to die for, this is a restaurant not to be overlooked.
