We went for a family occasion, oh dear! We had a roast but it wasn't great. We heard great things about this place and have been in the evenings and it was brilliant. But the roast was awful. We will go again in the evening as the food was good. Not again with the whole family.

We chose this venue to host a baby shower because of its stylish interior and the cream tea it had to offer at great value for money. All produce is local with the option of vegan and gluten free. Victoria the owner accommodated for our every want and need. Great day had by all!

My family arrived here for a Mothers day dinner. Two of my daughters are vegan and vegetarian. We ordered our meals, the starters were nice but the main meal was something entirely different. The vegetables served were cold and the cauliflower was raw. My son had a plate of roast potatoes as he wasn't particularly hungry when they came they... More

I visited with some friends after walking the white cliffs. We had to wait 10 mins for a table. Service was good and our drinks were brought quickly. Food tasted homemade and nice gluten free and vegan options. Fish cakes were full of fish and delicious. I will be back.

Thank SadGurl
