Return visit and we like the look of the less formal dinning rooms. Another great meal. These guys are consistently good and we particularly like the fish dishes. Looking forward to going back now we are more locally placed to visit them. Top marks again!More

Excellent selection of starters and mains. Local meat and fish. All very well presented. Very good wines, and a reasonable mark-up on them. Recommended, but book early!
