Enjoyed a beautiful meal of vegetarian gnocchi and banana tarte tatin. Others in the group had seafood curry, salmon, gnocchi with duck, and pork loin/belly special. Service was friendly and attentive.

Went here for brunch after a long drive. The atmosphere, coffee, and food was great. However apparently they had a new staff member who wasn't familiar with the dish I ordered (smashed avo with poached eggs) and the dish arrived as plain toast, two avocado...More

hi i have been reading your reviews, both good and bad. I'd just like to say on the responses to the bad reviews I found them very rood as I feel everyone has a right not to like the restaurant they have attended. I think you should take the bad reviews and learn from them instead of being so nasty to the people that didn't like your restaurant. my parents own a restaurant and have gotten bad reviews over the years for different reasons being new staff are to slow, new sheff not the best ect and they just say sorry for your bad experience please come and try us again and we will try to make you experience much better. After reading your comemts i no longer want to try your restaurant and i just hope these comments havnt also put off other people.
