Wonderful home cooked food to a very high standard. The fillet on a hot stone was simply delicious. Brilliant service from the family owned team. Our family of 8 were welcomed, wined, dined and very well looked after. Highly recommended for a touch of class at the right price.

We came with 10 people of which 3 kids. No problem at all. Mother and daughter cook and serve with passion for good food. Kids were served more early, with dishes the loved. We certainly are coming back here.

There have been a lot of alterations to the restaurant's structure since we last visited in 2014 (there are now new toilets downstairs for example)- one thing that hasn't changed is the quality of the food & wines.
