In our opinion this was the best food in the village. Found the owner very helpful and friendly and passionate about the food and the experience you had in her restaurant. It is very unusual for us to eat in the same place more than once as we like to try different restaurants. We tried their lunch menu and evening... More

We ate here twice one week and on the first occasion the older lady (owner?) was present and was very welcoming.

Really lovely food & great service from a lovely team at the restaurant. Really enjoyed our food & look forward to going back again. The fish is absolutely beautiful & the chicken clay pot was fantastico. The complimentary chocolate fudge cake, icecream & grapes were delicious.
