Owner's description

It’s relaxed, informal no waiters topping up wine glasses after every sip, or sneaking up behind you with a six foot peppermill. Cloth napkins but not starched, blackboard menus open plan kitchen (yes you can actually see me - scary)! intimate cosy candles flickering friendly without pretence ok so with a mix of Halifaxsoise and Franglaise rears its head now and then but some words just don’t translate very well if at all.
