'Gorgeous meal '
LYNN HAMMELL - 30/09/2014
My hubby and I had a fab meal on Saturday night to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The food is freshly prepared, every course delicious and full of flavour. Relaxed, friendly ambience and was really impressed when chef made me a fresh meringue when I advised I didn't like cream. 279 now listed to our 'favourites' we will return xxx
