We enjoyed food, service and athmosphere. There are different opinions on food but we had Kudu steak and it was very good. Service has been very friendly and helpful. So we really can recommend this restaurant.

Called in for mid-morning coffee and late breakfast. Decent "healthy breakfast" with granola, fruit and honey, my wife had the eggs, bacon and toast. Good coffee, nice service, a warm fire.
