Based on the TA reviews we were enthusiastic to go for dinner. The place seemed to have a nice atmosphere so we booked a reservation to sit outside in their garden area. Upon arrival they suggested that our reservation just specified “outside “ so we...More

We had a wonderful meal here, mine being vegetarian and my husband having a pasta special. All food seems to be local and/or organic. The service was very good and there was a singer who was very pleasant to listen to.

Took my two sons (7 & 10) for a pizza and fries on Friday evening, it was busy... so we expected a wait, no worries... Should have been simple right? The boys drinks came after 5 min, the fries (single order) turned up after 30...More

We were recommended Dangerous by the guy serving ice creams 2 doors away at (the also fabulous Wholefood Cafe). They were closed for the night so we went with the recommendation and weren't disappointed. We had 2 beautiful pizzas, a vegetarian with olives and a...More
