“Just So Good”
“What a surprise? Beautifully presented food that not only looked perfect but was enhanced by unusual crockery and delivered by knowledgeable staff and even better, tasted as it should. Loved it. The chef and his team are a class act. Prices are high for the area but offer great value for money if you are a foodie.“
