This restaurant worked out beautifully for dinner out with dear friends from HK days.They had chosen this as it is nearby their home. Setting is nicely informal yet country elegant. Service was equally relaxed if a slight bit distracted. Fare was well prepared and well...More

Chef Jools is like a fine wine he gets better and better with age! The pilgrims on horses is a unique dish that is one of the best dishes I have had. The scallops are full of flavour and superbly enhanced by the black pudding...More
