This cosy little restaurant is so handy as you can either have a coffee and scone or order something more or just a drink. The staff are very nice and friendly. It's not a big place but for just a quite whatever it is ideal.

My family and I had a beautiful meal in Fara's restaurant last night. The duck was to die for. You must get it if you are eating there. The staff were so friendly and attentive.

I got a sirloin steak it was gorgeous . I would definitely recommend this restaurant. There is plenty of room so you don't feel as if you are sharing a table with strangers.
