Delightfully cosy restaurant run by a charming couple. She does front of house and he is the chef. The food is exquisite and beautifully presented. Well priced for very high quality produce. Service is charming and helpful.

Very quiet Monday in the snow only six customers. Host was polite and kind but not particularly 'warm and friendly' needs to be more 'outgoing' - set menu with wines was faultless in cooking and good value. Needs more ambience but food excellent.
