The Chef/owner is passionate about cooking and we strive to use as much local produce as possible on our menu which changes on a regular basis. The restaurant has a relaxed and unstuffy atmosphere as we want our guests to enjoy the whole experience. We are happy to cater for vegetarians and special dietary requirements with advance notice. As the restaurant is only small and to reduce waste, we only prepare for the bookings we have, it is essential to make reservations in advance.
