You have to look hard to find this place which is within the craft market behind the Sloop pub. Setting is lovely and food even better. Pork belly was incredible. Service good and good value

Well worth finding this restaurant, a little gem! Superb food, friendly professional service. Enjoyed mussels and duck to start followed by two excellent roast beef dinners. Gluten free variations made without any fuss. Including a couple of drinks the bill came to £45 Highly recommended.
