Visited place with friends having just arrived from Switzerland. Quiet Monday afternoon. Nice range of beers and good value. Barman very friendly and helpful in suggesting beers. And what a wonderful little town it is in to make a great overall experience.

We went there for lunch on a Sunday. It was nice, relaxing atmosphere, good service. The food was good, really nice soda bread with salmon, well presented. The apple tart wasn't as nice as expected. We will go back!
