Simply fantastic food! The duck was so moist and tender; the best I've had ever! My husband had the rabbit which was also exceptional. Presentation was outstanding. Chef/owner Ian Carswell has done an amazing job. This gem is worth the drive from Ottawa and beyond.

Last night we dined on the Burns night 4 course menu, Dainty little haggis tortierre with whiskey sauce, Chef Ians version of cock-a-leeky soup. A pretty bowl with a quenelle of delicious chicken with frizzled leeks, and then a wonderful rich broth poured over it...More

Never a disappointment and always a great meal and fantastic service! We’ve had the charcuterie plate a few times and enjoy how it always changes a little: keeps you guessing! My husband has had the Steak Frites twice: tender, succulent and a nice charbroiled flavour....More
