We had good dinners there. Service was good. All the tables are outdoors, so watch the weather. Enjoyed our meal, but not sure if we would return

Turned up without a reservation on a rainy Sunday and despite being busy, they found us a great table. Had a lovely meal, good wine and the service was excellent. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Outside garden area for warm summer evenings and an inside area with a wood-burning stove, or an enclosed patio for the cooler winter evenings.
