Twelve Days to Christmas Diner Amical
December 12, 2012
David and Carrie Allcorn have run Vats for a number of years, and it has earned its place as a resort for those who like good food and good wine, with good service but no fuss: David welcomes all customers, but particularly those who appreciate what is put before them. Our menu reflects their considerable experience in the wine trade; and their love for game.
