It's the way restaurants used to be - formal (stuffy?), prim, silver service, formal waiters. Good menu in that it's not too big and ambitious with some seasonal specials. Three of us at a comfortable table and we were given due attention for drinks and...More

A real reminder of just what a quality lunch can be, inventive but not overly complicated and just allowing genuine quality local ingredients to put their best foot forward, and real value too. Highly highly recommended for those in search of understated elegance.

We offer something for everyone from a bowl of homemade soup to our fine dining experience in the evening and we have been awarded 3 rosettes by the AA.
