Owners description

Tom Goldie has a love for simple fresh food, cooked in a traditional way and using authentic methods with a modern twist. Enjoy hearty winter fare such as slow roasted lamb shanks braised in red wine and rosemary or the speciality crumbed pork chops with a tangy honey and mustard sauce. The menu is prepared daily according to seasonal availability. The starters include aged brie wrapped in phyllo served with fig preserve, prawn tempura, Falkland calamari with chouricco and sundried tomato and delicious creamy snails. Decadent desserts celebrate chocolate with bar one sauce and ice-cream, delectable brownies, traditional bread and butter pudding with custard and Portuguese style crème caramel.

 

User reviews

  • Sadly the service and food quality did not match up to the beautiful surroundings. Over a 30 min wait to be acknowledged once seated despite numerous attempts to request menus, a very disappointing 1.5hr wait for our food, absolutely non existent service, nor any attention to the table nor any feedback regarding delays and to top it all off, incorrect billing. A very disappointing and frustrating experience.
