This restaurant is top notch. Service excellent location excellent and the food was glorious. The prices are reasonable too. The only negative was a draught every time the front door opens but that’s only a small negative. Excellent choices on the menu.

This place has a very cute and romantic interior with good wines. Outside I would recommend for lunch during warmer weather. The staff are great and attentive.

The blue door is a little better for atmosphere than food. Really quaint and quiet. Cottage pie and fish & chips were tasty, but crab on toast was flavorless.

Delicious food in a sweet setting. Wine list is not too great, and the charming restaurant is VERY small! But the service was lovely. Try the chicken; we loved it!
