Myself and my cousin absolutely love this place!! food and staff have been amazing every time we have been. its a great way to start a lovely evening out and the restaurant itself is set in a beautiful location but because it is slightly below ground level it gives it a feeling of a hidden gem.

Excellent value again for Sunday lunch in every way. Just one hint to the staff - turn some heating on. It was cold the first Sunday in March, but the welcome was very warm.
