My husband & I had lunch here. The best fish cakes I've ever had! So delicious. The slaw with them was excellent. My husband really liked his lamb sandwich. Cozy interior. We hope to return soon.

Very enjoyable night spent here, food was very tasty. All drinks are craft so dont exect coke or 7up or the likes. Only downfall is that although portion sizes were okay, no sides with main courses. Still quite hungry afterwards!!

Delicious food every time I've ever been here. Love the pancakes and everything else they serve. Quirky decor and lovely little spot for brunch. Only downside is it's sort of poky so no room for buggies. And it gets busy so book at busy times.

The menu is small, however has a good variety. Food was exquisitely presented and tasted beautiful. It is expensive, however as a treat it is worth it. Staff was extremely friendly and the restaurant itself is quirky and a really nice experience. Starter of chestnut...More
