2007-2014 // The List Eating and Drinking Guide 

Hitlisted in our first year, 2007, and recommended as part of the guide every year since, the harshest words The List have had to say about us over 8 years was that our menus were worn and that it was be hard to find a seat at lunchtime. We can work on those!

Thank you to local publications like The List for your ongoing support of small eateries via guides like this – we love it and read it cover to cover!
