This is the place to go for a coffee and creamed tea. The staff is VERY friendly and helpful. I got the creamed tea (substituted latte with soy milk). The scones, clotted cream, and jelly was AMAZING.

We enjoyed dinner here for our 40th wedding anniversary. Lovely, well-done restaurant. Excellent service and lovely food. Chef Dissen had worked with local growers to provide a tasty, healthy menu. Specialty cocktails are a must try.

I don't understand why this place does not have a better rating. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Delicious mussels and wonderful fish. It is very pleasant and has a great vibe. There was a wonderful musician playing the night we were there. Service was good.

Yes, there is plenty of suitable seating, especially outside, but do let the staff know when you make your reservation so they can seat you away from the live music or loud groups.

Our business group of 20 used the upstairs private space very comfortably with plenty room remaining. The table was set beautifully and we felt like we were in our own private restaurant.
