Amy our waitress was very helpful, couldn't do enoughfor us. My daughters baked potato was black in the centre, and she did not llike the kale but this is an individual taste. Amy gave us free coffee which was appreciated.

Hi. Food and service was amazing. By waiting time from ordering to being served food you could tell everything was prepared fresh. And 5 stars to staff! We were staying in hotel near by. While dining the weather turned bad quickly lashing rain and storm. So one of the staff members gave us a lift to hotel even it was just 5 min walk. Amazing service!

I was disappointed with food. It really lacked flavour. The Daube of beef was very salty and my husbands steak was very fatty. The brie starter was also very basic. The staff were very attentive and service was excellent.

Staff were very friendly and quick to see to us when needed - they all had good manners - all this is quite unusual in restaurants nowadays, so very well done. Bar table very low to eat from.
