Have visited here a few times now and the food is consistently excellent although the service can sometimes be a bit patchy which is a shame.

I love this place, the good was really tasty and the service very friendly. While waiting we were offered complementary snacks (button mushrooms stuffed with cheese) and they were delicious. I had deer ravioli which was excellent. Going back soon

We were invited there for dinner. Was impressed by most of what I ate there. Good service. Restaurant is located in an actual wooden home that has been fixed up. Worth checking out!
