If your idea of a restaurant is very large portions of reasonable quality food, served in a very busy noisy environment, then Mama Rosas maybe the place for you. If on the other hand, you prefer something more refined, then give it a miss perhaps. I found that the tables were crammed in, rather small with not very comfortable chairs.... More

Fabulous food. Staff brilliant. Ambience exceptional. Toilets so clean. What more can I say. ??? A lovely restaurant. Cushions for chairs if you want them. Menu extensive.

Very friendly family restaurant which always seems full and guests always seem contented. We had bruschetta for starter, tastiest and largest we have had. Followed by a selection of steaks, all cooked to requirement and tender and mouth watering. The wine, an Italian Merlot, was smooth and reasonably priced. Puddings and coffees of same high standard. Only criticism , a... More

Went here for the first time with my wife for lunch on Friday. It was busy but managed to find a table. The food is freshly made and very delicious with excellent portion size. We had a pasta each and that would have been more than filling enough but we also go a bread and butter side which you don't... More

I have been to this lovely family run restaurant several times over the years . Whether its for a quiet meal for two or a larger family celebration I have always had a wonderful time. The décor is a little dated now but the food is always of a very high standard. It has a very friendly feel about the... More

A rustic place, basic furnishings and decor, this is not a criticism just an observation. The food was good and plentiful, I had a chicken dish with sauce, lots of it, the sauteed potatoes which came with it were like small crispy roast potatoes, lovely! My wife had a chicken pasta dish, again lots of sauce and a generous portion.... More

I've been here several times now and never been disappointed. The last time being a family occasion with over 10 of us and we placed in the separate room just off the restaurant. Good spot. The waiter/waitresses were polite, efficient and friendly. The food served hot and with more than enough. Very good evening.

We visited on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was pretty busy. The service was very efficient and the food was very good with generous portion sizes. Pricing is also pretty good and is an all round good value evening out.
