We ate outside in the courtyard on a sunny evening with a view of the lavender bushes. The food was really delicious and the staff were great. We really enjoyed our meal under the stars. It’s a lovely place.

We ate at lunchtime last November. The food was appropriate for the season, also it was in the middle of the week. I can't remember how much choice, but it was delicious food.
