Perfection. Lovely food and service. A "special occasion" treat for sure, romantic. Not inexpensive, but worth it. We enjoyed the chef's tasting menu with wine pairings. Every bite, every sip brought ohhhs and ahhs. A charming old inn.

I only ate there once, but it was really good. Portions are not too large, which is good when you're staying at a hotel with no place to store leftovers :)
