We ate both lunch and dessert here. Not the least expensive at about £50 for 3 mains ( 2 sandwiches and a lasagna), a soup, side of chips, 3 drinks and 2 cakes - but it was lovely. The lasagna was especially good and would...More

Another restaurant that probably doesn't care about repeat business as there is so much passing tourist trade. We were very underwhelmed by the food and mistakes were made with the order. Having read glowing reviews from the past we suspect a change of ownership. There...More
