This was a great find tucked away opposite the Rashleigh Arms. It has a very comfortable, airy feel to the place with a great atmosphere. A small menu but the food and service were both excellent.

Called in on the off chance we could get a table for lunch, we were lucky. Lovely little table tucked into the corner. Service was excellent. We chose steaks with fries. No room for pudding. Have never been dissappointed eating here.
