First a warning: do NOT visit Miller´s Thumb if you like quiet places with white tablecloths and distinguished waiters hovering among the tables! This is quite the opposite - a lively (not to say loud) and rustic place with great food. Definitely worth visiting! The...More

Really nice little restaurant. They managed to find us a table even though they were very busy. Food was excellent, and their knowledge of wine and gin was really good. The prices are reasonable and the service was really good.

I e-mailed. Lady owner responded but late saying TripAdvisor kept giving e-mail address for reservations despite her saying it should be by phone. She was very nice and i did get a cancellation. Bottom line is use phone.

Quite close. From MQ to main road, turn left, about 200 meters turn right and it takes 10 to 15 minutes easy walk. The guys at MQ will give you a map if you ask them. It’s worth going, it really is
