Given the accolades The Cottage had received and having been disappointed the first time round, I decided to give it another go for Sunday lunch. There are three small dining areas. The table and chairs are basic. The lighting and general design is poor. A signal of the lack of attention to detail was the flimsy paper napkins. The service... More

Lucky enough to get a gap in the bookings dropping by on a Sunday lunchtime thanks to helpful staff but a note to self to book ahead in future. Food was terrific and the staff were attentive without being intrusive. Great value for money for good food too. This is going to be on my list 'Favourite Places to Eat... More

This Restaurant is in a beautiful location with parking on the street outside. The menu is extensive. The wine list is also very good. We had the Early Bird which was outstanding, however, I will return to try the A La Carte. The food was very tasty and the service excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
