Just had the perfect lunch. The service was excellent, great setting sitting outside and the food just could not be faulted. We had the Crispy Chilly Squid for starters and then the Duck with Burnt Coconut Salad, wonderful favours. Can't wait to go back.

Food was of good quality and service was friendly and efficient. We opted for sharing boards and nibbles - really nice. Outside area is large and has 'proper' tables and chairs as well as standard pub tables and benches. Insid set up more for dining.

Can anyone tell me, please, whether the garden is completely enclosed and safe to let toddlers roam free (while adults enjoy their food)? Thanks in advance

Not totally enclosed, you would have to watch your toddler closely.
