    Went for an early dinner mid week, friendly welcome from owners and staff, excellent food, scallops, duck hash, then risotto and hake both fine. An anniversary and treated to sparkling rose and a beer, nice touch . Recommended

    Stayed here as a family for my mothers wake and the staff could not have done any more, they were warm friendly and kind. We couldn't be more grateful and would highly recommend this as a place to stay and eat.
