Well, I was expecting cheap and cheerful and that’s exactly what I got, with a healthy mix of yummy food thrown in.The restaurant was full, the atmosphere relaxed and cosy and the service was friendly and helpful.Three women on a night off stuffed themselves silly with starters (stuffed peppers and 2 x garlic mushrooms), main courses (pork something, chicken something and chicken something else) and desserts (banoffi pie, chocolate fudge cake and 3 flavours of home-made icecream).

Dessert was a toffee cheesecake, which was also up to the same standard.Lunch day 2 was more interesting. Pork with chirozo stuffing and a mushroom and spring onion cafe au lait. Continue reading »
“Award winning restaurant”, we were promised.The question we were asking by the end of the night was “What award and when?”
With an evening of unexpected (and free) babysitting thrust upon us, Con and I were only too delighted to head out for a drink and dinner. We’d been meaning to sample the delights of the Stone Haven since we’d moved to the area. Anyone who ventured an opinion was highly complimentary. Continue reading »
