Perfect for that romantic dinner, wedding, milestone anniversary or just a casual lunch, call Sally and her team to book your table. Every guest is made to feel welcome and the hospitality will have you returning again and again.
THE BOSS SAYS: "What an absolute pleasure to have something of the quality of Bistro Molines just 5 minutes from my back door.

THE BOSS SAYS- "What a great day! We did this fantastic tour with our family (mum, dad and 2 teenage children) and had a fantastic time. It was a little daunting at first wondering if we could control these strange looking machines, but once we had our balance it was quite simple and VERY enjoyable. Our guide was fantastic and from a local's perspective it was such an amazing way to see more of this beautiful countryside we are surrounded by. Highly recommended! *****"

My team and I took the tour on a very warm Summer day and we were well looked after as was the collection of well priced wine we had purchased throughout the day.
