Food lovely and fresh and menu is classic but creative. Owner very pleasant, a little patronising if I’m being honest. However you can’t have everything.

Served by very pleasant junior staff - incredibly helpful with children & bringing our drinks to outside table. Food is good - fish finger sandwich chips and salad. Ideal for a after lunch visit to the AMAZING Etches Collection.

Our 2nd visit to this restaurant after going fossil hunting. Lovely food , friendly staff. A little expensive but will always get the business due to location. Parking is limited, so be warned!
