Nice welcome at this compact restaurant where the kitchen delivers some wonderful plates of food. Difficult to see how Michelin have passed it by for so many years. Service is personal friendly and very knowledgeable. Wine list good too.

This restaurant is bijou (small but perfectly formed). I would not take my dog even if was permitted. Sufficient space for diners not for dog too.
