Lovely new place. Tasty food and nice modern decor and friendly atmosphere. Enjoyed sitting out on the deck and highly recommend their “chocolate ice” drink.

I have been here many times and have never been disappointed. The staff have really found their mojo, I like the fact that you sit outside and look over the twon. Carparking is good and the cabinet food is a nice change.
