A great venue with knowledgeable staff. The platter was lovely with plenty of bread and a second pot of olive oil happily provided. The tapenade and other dips were great too. We had the tasting wines, the syrah is divine!

Visited with friends and had a shared platter which was excellent. I'm not a wine drinker but did take the opportunity to do some tasting. Friendly atmosphere and lovely venue. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

The wines are certainly worth a taste, and the experience enhanced by a very knowledgeable host. The luncheon plate was outstanding - varied, tasty and beautifully presented.

When we arrived there was no record of the booking and the surly man at the door was difficult to say the least. Fortunately the manageress remembered calling us and gave us a table but we... More
