It was quiet on the night we visited, but were made to feel most welcome and our waitress was very pleasant and helpful. The food was very good and there was plenty of choice with a number of specials. The bill was very reasonable and we will have no hesitation in returning on our next trip.

This little restaurant up at the end of the Main Road doesn't look like much from the outside, but is cosy and homely when you get in, with a fabulous oval window looking out into the garden. I ordered the pork belly which was as tender as tender can be, and accompanied by wonderful buttered cabbage. It was a special... More

Seven of us enjoyed a memorable dinner in this charming restaurant. The food was fresh, healthy & cooked to perfection. I'm vegetarian but this didn't present a problem. I choose the aubergine bake which was beautifully presented & delicious to taste. In spite of the restaurant being full the service was excellent. All of us agreed having enjoyed a variety... More

We were advised that this was the most popular place to eat in Darling. Of course the food was delicious but the poor waitress who was a delight, was run off her feet. I really wanted a dessert but we gave up waiting when she simply could not cope with the crowd. I did feel that the owner who stood... More

This is a quaint restaurant with great ambiance. Nicely furnished tables in a cosy room. a small selection on the standard menu, and a chalk board with the specials of the day. Food, service, and prices are all favourable. Almost over catering for the quiet town. Definetly a place to visit for dinner. The favouraite is either eisbein or lamb... More
