We serve the best 300gram Rib Eye steak cooked to your requirements, luscious Fish - pan fried or freshly battered – and many other great food choices.

Our four rooms comfortably cater for 8 guests and breakfast is included in the tariff.

Vicki & Knobby are knowledgeable hosts and are happy to help with information and suggestions about our lovely area. We look forward to seeing you.
