Fantastic food and a delightful host. It is also incredible value for money. A real gem that would be hidden without Trip advisor. Good choice for kids as well. It is worth booking because they seem to be full all the time.

We were taken here by good friends now living in the vicinity and it was a fantastic lunch experience. We were very impressed with the food quality and the obvious passion of Frank towards the food served. Highly recommended. We will definitely return.

I've eaten there twice. The food is amazing. I'm a veggie and there was plenty of choice. Suggest phoning in advance because they may be able to give you a bigger choice of dishes. I would say that it is essential to book as... More
