This restaurant is a gem, not on the main road but worth the find, the food is consistently of an excellent standard, really worth the trip. The service is great, and I highly recommend this restaurant.

Now, my father is not the best person for meals out, he finds them overly expensive for the same type of food you could have at home. This was not his opinion on this evening. For the first time that i can remember he was singing... More

My friend treated to me to lunch at Austell's recently, the Eggs Benedict with perfectly poached Duck eggs was delightful but the Lemon Possette Dessert was the most delicious dessert i have ever tasted. A great introduction to this unassuming restaurant and i will definitely return to try the dinner menu.

Thank Terri Y
