Took a gamble as we were wandering the lanes. Food was gorgeous and the service made it even better. My Mum is disabled and the welcome and help we got was amazing!

I am not sure what you like, but Darcys will give you a great plate of fresh cooked food, (you can heat herbs being chopped) - so what’s not to like - or go to a chain restaurant and have same old -try Darcys 👍
