Eat your heart out Paul Daniels. More ‘magic’ has been created in this small kitchen than ever came out of one of your top hats. Plenty of magical moments and memories created at the tables as well. Sadly only one sit down meal this year...More

Thank you John and Marion for your fabulous review. it’s great to see you back again this season and good to know that last years ‘severing’ didn’t do you too much harm!! I’m sure the team will look forward to serving you again soon.

Lovely lunchtime meal. Saw the other reviews and tried it for ourselves - we were not disappointed. We ordered the smoked haddock chowder and fish and chips. Both were excellent. Service was brilliant and highly recommend this place. Will be returning. Thanks!

I’m terribly sorry we close on the 28th October for the season. Opening again in the spring. Hopefully you’ll be able to make it for a meal then. Kind regards.
