When we arrived we received a warm welcome the staff were very friendly. The meal was lovely we all had different starters and main courses. The duck pappardelle was delicious. Would definitely revisit if we are in the area again.

I only reviewed this restaurant but I am not the owner. Food is good and the place can seat about 16 -20 only. Not much room for any more.
