We came off the train late in the evening, it was raining and cold, we just wanted a nice hot meal. Menu choice was OK. Service came with a smile, price correct. Nothing to say.

Had a nice fish lunch here, there was everything we could have wished for. Just make sure that you arrive at 12.15 in the summer and order before the steam train arrives with lots of tourists. I don’t know if this is everyday or just...More
