From the moment you arrive it's wow. Beautiful old buildings lovingly restored but a sense of entering an old world era. The food, service and decor is amazing and my favourite... Lovely open fire. Great selection of locally sourced food. Only regret I didn't buy the cook book on the day. Intend to go back.

Came for Valentine's Day. It was one of the best meals I have ever had. I would definitely recommend the Duck starter! Everything about our meal was just brilliant. The portions were perfectly sized and tasted gorgeous. The staff were all very professional and friendly. I would recommend this wonderful restaurant to friends!
