Still setting an excellent standard

Returned here recently on a chilly Monday evening for a celebratory meal. The restaurant was quiet but the welcome was genuine and the food as beautifully prepared and presented as ever. Remains one of our favourite restaurants in the area and we will return.

Despite two large parties and lack of reservation we where very well looked after by the staff. The food was delicious with sensible portion sizes and the wine was sensibly priced, two courses each and a bottle of Chianti for less than £50!

Before visiting i had read quite a few reviews of this restaurant - the large majority being positive so the bar was already set quite high. It's quite a small restaurant but has an authentic decor which really gives the place a nice feel. Our waitress was very friendly and patient with us - we took quite a while to... More

After high praise from friends about this place we finally decided to go. It was table of five and and arrived at 6pm. The place was very quiet seeing as it only just opened. Upon arriving we sat down in what could be described as booths. After initially sitting there for 10 minutes, and getting comfy the waiter arrived saying... More

The friendliest staff you'll find anywhere, serving the most delicious food. You'll probably have to book for Thursdays to Sundays as I!0've told everyone about this place and it's becoming everyone's favourite place too.

Had a reservation for a table of 7 on a Saturday. Food terrific and staff friendly. The only negative thing that I could say, was we had to wait for a long time between courses, but the restaurant was very busy but when the food came it was all freshly cooked and hot!

As it was early on a Monday night we got a table for four quite easily. There was a good selection of starters and main courses and everyone was pleased with their choices. The food was tasty and speedily served. The food and drink was good value for money.
