A picture perfect setting with great informal food. We went for a platter which was delicious, and made all the better for being washed down with a superb bottle of Margrain Rose. It is difficult to fault and the staff were very welcoming.

Its a lovely setting, especially on a good day where you can sit in one of the outdoor areas. Menu is relatively simple, child and wallet friendly. Generous portions. Wine very reasonably priced and a great range considering it is all from the one vineyard.

Celebrated my sons 29 birthday lunch here, we had the Vegetable stack and the Haloumi Salad and both were very tasty and good servings. The outdoor area is lovely with autumn vines and trees in the background. Had a nice Pinot Noir with it.

We ate here whilst visiting some wineries in the area, and were pleased with our choice. I had the Spanish Gypsy Stew which was filling and plentiful, but was maybe too heavy with the chickpea component. Wine tasting here is fun too, with lots of...More

I feel like this should be more of a review for the wine, but honestly the fries here are amazing, as is the shared platter. Lovely staff too, very friendly and accomodating.
