It is very much a bijou restaurant with lots of old world charm. Very intimate atmosphere and the food was excellent, well presented and the service was very good. We all had a lovely time and I would recommend this restaurant.

You could park directly outside the pub, but there are a couple of steps into the pub, and the toilets are not accessible with a wheelchair.
