What our guests say.

“Wow - such a change with the new ownership and renovation. Popped in for Sunday lunch and we decided to have the harvest table. The Chicken Pie was off the charts, but the Carrot Cake with Cheese Cake topping just stole my heart. Such a great chilled, but beautiful vibe. Took my dog with and he got a free treat. Loved it!”
