The food and company here was so good it prompted me to do my first review on TripAdvisor. A very welcoming bistro with top notch food. I had lamb which was divine. Leave room for pudding because the homemade ice cream is utterly superb, with the Rhubarb flavour being top of the shop. Book now you will not be disappointed.

Really nice food in a cosy restaurant. Owner and staff are very obliging and pleasant. The menu varies a little according to season. You need to book as it doesn't have a large seating capacity.

I booked as a special birthday treat for partner and we had a wonderful evening. We were made to feel welcome and pondered the menu in very comfortable surroundings. The service was exceptional and the food delicious. Can't wait to return - thank you.

We visited the restaurant in November whilst spending 2 days in Thornton le Dale. The food was lovely well presented, the Starter of a cheese soufflé was sublime, Adam was so helpful with helping us pick a wine, opening further wines for us to try, something you don't seem to get these days, a personal service with a passion to...

We manage two courses and have always... More

Had a birthday meal here. From the moment we arrived the service was excellent. The food was delicious, we had all three courses. We only live 2 miles away but this was our first visit, it will not be our last. Thank you .
