The menu starts with the advice to be patient as it takes time to prepare a good meal. I assume everyone who wants to eat something different then fast food or has cooked before understands and accepts this! Now we had 3 different Entreés, Caprese...More

Even though the restaurant had a touring coach party in they seemed to cope well, we had the hot loaf to start with followed by the rack of lamb, cooked to perfection with nice accompanying vegetables. Very enjoyable
