This restaurant has good food and a nice dining room with good service. They are gluten free, I am a bread fan. They seemed to be quite busy and I recommend getting reservations.

Fabulous cozy restaurant with second to none service. The food is delicious and guaranteed gluten free. If you haven't had their sticky toffee pudding well you haven't had the best pudding ever!!! I cannot praise the food or people here enough. It's absolutely amazing.
