Came here for lunch and sat on their lovely terrace. Service was friendly and efficient. Perfect sized portions for both kids and adults. Lovely on a sunny day (which we were lucky to have). The indoor seating looked nice and plentiful.

This is a lovely restaurant as a setting. But the last 3 times the food had been very poor. My last main course was taken away with nearly everything left on the plate. I did not enjoy it. My wife's main course was OK.More
