Called in here because they are happy to let dogs in. What a lovely surprise, it was really great. The food is freshly cooked, locally sourced and well presented. The owner was very welcoming and accommodating. All in all one of the best lunches we have had recently.

On our first visit to the salmon lnn, was very disappointing, the sticky chicken dishes ,didn't remotely taste like good quality chicken, when asked about the wine ,the people skills of the person who served us could do to be improved on,

A lovely place for a super meal. Great value for money. Food is of a high standard.
Only one down point, they'd run out if the Pâté, and only had one bottle of Cava in stock the night I was in.

Thank you so much for you constructive feedback
Apologies that the Pâté wasn't available .
The Cava was on limited availability and had proved to be very popular
However we are so glad you had a nice visit and look forward to seeing you back soon .
Will look into the Cava issue with the team with a view to including it in our wine list.
Many thanks
