Wonderful, welcoming atmosphere with helpful staff. The place was busy and catering for everyone whether you just wanted a coffee, drink, snack or three course meal. We had the three course meal which was delightful and extremely tasty. Portions sizes are not tiny. Reasonably priced.

We booked ahead on line. On arrival we were expected and welcomed, always a good start. The whole place was full and "buzzing" nicely, even at 5.30. Just the 2 of us, we were shown to a table that could probably have taken 4, another...More

You should make reservations in advance to get a seat here, and it seems that it's most difficult to get a table for two. Noticed that they had several tables for 3 and 4 persons, but none for 2 the day in advance. But the...More
