Noticed this find on a walk and decided to pop in and try it as it was my partners birthday. Pleasantly surprised the food was delicious. Service was also excellent ensuring we were happy with everything. Will visit again. Thanks !

The fixed price menu is imaginative and extremely good value. Service was good and everything beautifully presented. The duck with marmalade sauce was delicious.
