The Restaurant

IMG_5883

The restaurant while still rustic and traditional in construction (dry-pegged oak rafters throughout), has lofty ceilings and a wonderful feeling of space. The L-shaped layout with a flexible array of high-backed settles allows parties of all sizes to enjoy their own intimate space, while benefiting from the atmosphere of the whole.
