great find

We recently moved to this area and have been trying various local restaurants with mixed results.Went to the Memories Bistro in November to celebrate a birthday and had a lovely evening. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.

It's not often nowadays you receive such a warm and friendly welcome when you enter a restaurant. Hazel makes you feel at home and relaxed from the moment you walk in. The bistro itself is small and cosy and is perfect for this type of venue. We ordered the crab cakes to start which were perfect. Then moved on to... More

From start to finish we had another wonderful meal at Memories. What more do you want than good company, good service, value for money along with an excellent meal. The venison main course just melted in the mouth combined with a beautiful sauce. You will travel a long way to get food better than this (apart from the wife's cooking... More
