"Lovely little restaurant with a wonderful atmosphere and excellent staff. Unfortunately, on this visit, my wife’s pork chop was burnt but the staff were amazing and deducted this from the bill as well as giving my wife a free dessert. This did not overly detract from the evening as all the other food was fantastic but does explain my lower score on the food rating."
