Went in to try the new dessert menu with my partner a week or so ago, and they were delightful! My pick was the creme brûlée! Atmosphere was warm which was nice on a cold evening, and service with a smile!!

The food and service were excellent - the only thing that could have been improved was the ambiance upstairs.

The food is outstanding. No question. The atmosphere is barn like with no music and echoes rattling around the space. Bethany's also need to improve their beer fridge. No craft beer to compliment a great menu
