Bit behind with our reviews but have been 3 times in recent weeks, each visit was great. For dinner last month we had fishcakes and a chicken dish from the specials menu. Both were great, especially the fishcake which had really good flavour. Where Ceno really excels is its desserts. We had the chocolate brownie and a banoffee sundae which... More

Was surprised to be able to book a table for 7 last Monday evening. When we got there it wasn't busy but started filling up fast and then we came to realise how popular it is. And for good reason. We were there for a celebratory meal on the eve of my daughter's graduation and it couldn't have been better.... More

Another great meal at this excellent restaurant in an easily accessible location. Have eaten here on many occasions, just the two of us as it was on Sunday, or large family occasions, and have never been disappointed. A wide ranging menu for food and wine at a price that doesn't break the bank, coupled with friendly service where nothing is... More

Picked the hottest day of the year to have lunch out and picked cenos for its lovely big decking area. Had a couple drinks each and a burger. Was fantastic quality. Service was great. Happy and friendly. Made to feel like a regular! Would definitely recommend and would go back!
