People love it here!

Wow. Atmosphere, check. Beautiful renovated heritage home with beautiful appointments, lovely light and ambience, and friendly staff. Food - check+. The family enjoyed the stuffed haddock - (cooked perfectly, impeccably spiced), and the beef and mash special (tasty med rare beef). Would come back 8 days a week.
Cute spot! Popped in for a drink, saw the nachos on the menu and we couldn’t resist. They were by far the best nachos I’ve had in a long time. The sauces were yummy and the beef was tender. Would highly recommend. Talked to the owner and the chef too! They have great energy.
Love it. A total surprise while we were in the valley for another event. Excellent staff, cozy atmosphere, great food and drink selections. Will definitely stop in again when I'm in the area. There's more to the valley than just wineries.
Amazing experience! Welcomed by the staff to sit at the bar even though the restaurant was fully booked for the evening. The atmosphere was a lovely comfortable modern vibe. The food was amazing, had the BBQ chicken and Bulgogi Nachos and took home a Spiced Apple Rum cake which was delicious. Thank you for a great meal and experience!
