We are an unpretentious restaurant serving great food. We have local fresh fish and terrific steaks from locally reared stress-free animals. Choose a bottle of wine from our carefully selected range, all priced below normal restaurant prices. We make our own bread and desserts. All in all, we can give your tastebuds a great workout. We welcome adult diners, but regret that we are unable to offer facilities to children under 12 years old. We no longer respond to reviews, as they are now being manipulated too frequently.
