“Only half hour drive to gain a wonderful food experience you will want to repeat. You will love the tiny tarts that came out to tease you when waiting for your starters and the warm breads and soft butter are irresistable. The set dishes were so beautifully presented you will want to photograph them. I won't go on and I just ask that you don't miss out on delicous food! Make sure to book!”
