The perfect place to sit down at the end of the day or, indeed at lunchtime to enjoy bistro type food at its best

Stopped here on our way to our B&B - enjoyed a great tapas lunch, ordered far too much, was very tasty and reasonably priced.

This place is a joke. The food is way below par. We were served hot wine had to ask for an ice bucket. Server was all over the place. Prawns smelt bad. Chorizo was not chorizo. Chips soggy. Very disappointed.
