Tripadvisor comment :
'Five star dining at three star prices' - We have eaten dinner here, as a family, several times and have never been disappointed. The first and most obvious thing about the place, apart from its lovely setting on the edge of this beautiful little town is the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. ... Courteous, friendly, professional and not intrusive ... (October 2011)
Afternoon Tea - just the tonic you need!
Our popular Afternoon Teas are offered daily (Monday-Friday) from 3pm although we strongly recommend that you book beforehand to avoid disappointment.
