Staying at the Courtyard we walked off the breakfast by following the river, the pathway has been restored and signposted as well as tarmac'ed for ease of access.

Staff excellent. Food incredible. Chef a true find. Excellent value for money. Food way way beyond expectations for a small daytime cafe transformed into evening restaurant.
