Wine Bar
$$
“Technically not a full bar but a wine bar with an excellent selection of French wines for all palates. Plus really great simple French food as an accompaniment or as a meal. If you are having food in the evening, I recommend booking a table. If you are just coasting for early dinner and a glass or two of your favorite vintage I recommend to sit downstairs or outside and order the very reasonable and delicious Duck Confit if it is on the menu or a cheese and meat plate which comes with a basket of proper french baguette. Vive la France!”

“You can walk here in 20 minutes. Lunch is tasty, and the craft beers are mighty & diverse. The Silver Tassie got a face lift not long ago. It's still the same old local pub, but now it also has a tasty lunch menu. A great spot to wander down to on foot on a bright day. Have a bite to eat and enjoy a couple pints. There's a gin menu, lots of interesting craft beers, and over 400 wines from all around the world including organics, biodynamics and more.”
