We were staying in the area and tried another restaurant the night before. On advice of a friend, we went here. So glad we did, the food and service were wonderful. Sorry we didn't find it earlier. Good selection of fresh, tasty dishes.

Had a lovely meal on Friday Night with the baked Camembert being the highlight. Sat at one of the outside tables which was lovely. Had the scotch fillet which was good. Pretty full after that so didn't get to desert
