Great atmosphere with delicious cheese selection and some classic wine. I could easily spend every Sunday afternoon here sitting in the courtyard sipping wine enjoying great company. The staff are friendly and knowledgable and the wine menu changes so there is always something new.

Great wines and fabulous cheese selection in a town where it's hard to get interesting cheese! Always friendly and not too crowded.
