I went there for lunch. Overall it was relatively uneventful. Nice scenery and great food. The service could have been faster and executed in a more timely manner. For example they would bring something and hen totally abandon me. Also I never knew who was...More

Try the chicken salad - it's not just a pile of greens with a bit of chicken - it's filling and tasty

Food is generally of a high standard; peaceful atmosphere with attentive staff. Enjoy an unhurried meal at a reasonable price. A mainstay eatery in the town.
