We really enjoyed eating there. The service was excellent and so was the food. The owner has a passion for good food and this was evident. We will certainly go there again the next time we are in the area.

Sadly the service and food was disappointing. Normally we come away really impressed, but we had to ask someone to take our order after sitting for 20 minutes, we had different mains, but the same as on previous visits,which weren’t anything they used to be.
