Guest raved over their Pork Schnitzel, whilst I was treated to a delicious bespoke vegetarian stir fry with perfect rice. Both chose the best home-made brownie, using chocolate from Ilfracombe Emporium, and served with fresh double cream. Never disappointed.

We came for dinner here tonight, it was first class service and 10/10 food. Really enjoyed our starter thai fishcakes, roast chicken and beef. To finish with sticky toffee pudding. Top chef. Poctures show you how amazing it was.
