Yet another fabulous meal with equal service. As a qualified Chef myself, I feel the essence of a good chef is to treat the diner as an artist would excite a viewer of their painting using texture colour and flavour. Young chef Rocky, using his...More

A very pleasant and very reasonable meal (Sunday lunch), very welcoming and accommodating staff (we had 1x coeliac, 1x 6-month old baby) and provided directions for a nice country walk afterwards. You will probably need to book a table in advance.
