Do not go past this small, quirky establishment without stopping for a cocktail or a coffee. Although we have never eaten here ... (why? I don't know - we keep meaning to, but never get 'round to it) ... it will remain my favourite stop...More

Portion sizes aren't large but neither is the price. Portions are perfect for lunch and we greatly enjoyed a glass of wine and asparagus with speck with pasta all at a reasonable price from friendly helpful staff. The shop is delightful too.
