We ate here on a Saturday night and had booked well in advance. The food was good with a non-standard menu. The dessert choice was unusual but they were good too. The service was good.

Went here for tea mid-week in October. Was worried with our dog, but they do have a small very pretty garden at the back and as it was a beautiful sunny day it was perfect to sit outside. We both had the Dorset cream tea...More
