I turned up at the hotel next door to be told no restaurant in the hotel (not a problem at all). They said go to Ceno. Great food and service. A lovely menu and a great mixture to chose from. I had the scallops and the swordfish (recommended by the lovely staff and more than pleased). Go there try it!... More

Perfectly situated restaurant just next to the Highfield House hotel. Food is good, especially to English standards, and there is also a decent selection of fine wines to drink with it.

I was very impressed by the excellent food and the service at Ceno. The Sunday lunch menu was about £18.50 for three courses - less for two courses. it was well worth it and I appreciated the little touches. For example, the creme brulee was served with a small fresh tasting fruit compote and a warm shortbread biscuit. When one... More

Every single meal has been delicious and also, interesting - thought has gone into each dish. So why didn't I give it 5 stars like everybody else? Purely... More

I have been going to Ceno last couple of years. Mostly for lunch, love their tapas menu specially the Mongolian lamb, rest assured everything in that menu is delicious. They have changed the menu around a bit but glad to see my favourite dishes still there. Looking forward to returning for some more Tapas.

Had a meal here with friends. Food was fantastic. Well looked after as usual. We have always been well looked after, be it the two of us, or the extended family of twelve including a 18month old.
