Advised to book this restaurant as it gets very busy, You will not be disappointed! To choose from the menu is so difficult as it all sounds and looks good and cooked to perfection.

Couldn't fault anything! Starters very tasty. Main courses of Lamb chops ++ were delicious. My Sirloin steak with pepper sauce separate was perfect. The summer pudding wonderful and I had a small plate of particularly tasty cheese and biscuits which were also perfect! Excellent value....More

Our first visit to this small but perfectly formed restaurant. Most welcoming and friendly staff; very varied menu and superbly prepared and presented food. We had the lobster salad........very impressed and great value for money. Extensive wine menu. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. The lobster is from the local fisherman who lives just across the road. Probably the cheapest lobster in town. Hope to see you again.
