The decision to go out for dinner was a last minute one and with a large group booked the team were really accommodating to fit our own large group in. The menu was tempting and extensive with lots of local produce. The meals were timely in arriving and beyond delicious! The food, the service, the atmosphere..all 5 star in my books.
We only chose this restaurant because it was around the corner from our air BnB. We weren’t expecting much from it or the town (it was really just a driving stop) but this gem of a restaurant delivered in spades. Amazing friendly staff (we met the whole family), great menu, good wine and a good kids menu. Bird aviary outside and a cat that the kids loved and when my fussy 7 year old only at the corn chips in his nachos the chef not only came out to deliver more corn chips, but gave him some to take in the car for the following day. I had the pork belly which was so huge I was full for a week and the quality of food was great. This is the kind of place where it feels like you’re going home for a meal. Friendly, warm and enough to become a holiday experience rather than just a meal.
