A lovely restaurant with a something for everyone on the menu. Of course some local dishes as well as more familiar items! At local rates reasonably priced and very friendly staff.

I stopped here for lunch on a cold day. The restaurant offers complimentary bread, soup and salads along with the meal you order. the soup was a welcome delight on a cold day. The service was excellent.

Went there for lunch but found it hard to identify anything on the menu that appealed or seemed worth the money. Strangely, we were too hot! Food was OK but I certainly wouldn't go back.
