We were welcomed into here by the very friendly waiter who looked after us well all night. All meals were professionally prepared and were eagerly consumed by all at the table. My mussels starter and belly pork main were both lovely dishes and consequently I'm positive we'll all return very soon.

Wow! What an exceptional meal. A small menu with a few specials added. In each of our courses the flavour combinations were stunning. The chef is obviously very talented and delivers a great plate of food which is served with professionalism and care by the front of house team. A memorable evening that we will have to repeat!

For our first visit we were amazed at the whole place. The atmosphere is very cosy and the service is quick. When our food arrived we were delighted by the appearance alone. The food tasted amazing and we are very excited to go back and try more on the menu as we were spoilt for choice!

A small restaurant, so book to be sure of your place. Great tasty food and very helpful staff. Fixed price menus for early evening dining are good value.
