    Great food but outdoor space is a wind tunnel. The wind would cut cold steel. If the outdoor space and wind was sorted this would have been a 5 star review across the board.

    Beautiful fresh food. Can recommend the sharing platter (we shared between 4 as an appetiser). Wood burning stove took off the chill but remember your coat for the cooler evenings. You need to book a few days ahead during busy periods to guarantee a table. Really lovely eating experience.

    By some miracle I managed to get a reservation and thank the lord I did as its booked now for over a month, last time I checked! Food is 10/10, staff are 10/10. Nothing more to add, you have to try it for yourself! It’s great to eat somewhere forward thinking, we were allowed to have our small dog sat at our feet, no questions asked, it wasn’t even a thought. The bar next door Patsy Dans is the same. It was 3 years since our last visit, but I see us returning very soon!
