This is lovely place, its perhaps a little off the beaten track but worth the effort. Excellent veggie options and a good selection of gin!

Very family friendly. Food was nice but nothing extraordinary and actually quite expensive for what we got. It was however ideal to go with kids. Colouring pencils and toys provided for kids and also a lovely outdoor area
