Just had one of the best meals I’ve had for ages. We took our two miniature schnauzers and were made to feel very welcome. The ambience is first class, the staff attentive and helpful and the food is first rate.

Lovely fire burning and really cozy. The sea bass was delicious and one of their gluten free options. We had hoped for the roast beef but not offered of Saturdays. We will return to this quaint town and to Burt's.
