Called in and the young lady that greeted us was very accommodating and put us in the quaint little room downstairs that is normally closed midweek. Food was excellent and very good value for money. This place is a hidden gem!!

Plenty of pasta dishes, but also catering for meat and fish eaters. Really good olives, and the house wine is very drinkable. Family run and reasonably priced. Enjoy
