The Molson Coors Free Trade Team had an evening meal on Thursday 22nd January & what a great night. There where 12 of us & from the time we entered Ceno's the welcome, service, food & atmosphere, where fantastic. The staff could not do enough for you & made the night very enjoyable. Thanks for a great night Ian Molson... More

We were there with a large group (conference), filling the whole restaurant. The small number of serving staff could not cope with the number of covers, though they could have saved themselves a lot of time and energy if they had been a little more organised and put water glasses and jugs of water on the table in advance. Instead,... More

From where our party of 13 were sat we could hear the tinkling of the service bell from the kitchen. I had visions of the chef, as the waiting staff, rushed to the call from all parts of the restaurant. The end result was that when starters were served they were all served pretty much together and this was repeated... More

I visited Ceno last week and felt the service was very hurried. We were there for a joint birthday celebration so would have liked to have had a more enjoyable evening. I have visited Ceno on many occasions (as I live locally) but I have to say that this was not a nice experience! We had only been sat at... More

As we were staying in the hotel next door, we booked into Ceno's on a Friday night. The place is quite modern, with subdued mood lighting and modern furniture. Unfortunately they didn't have cocktails, but we were showed straight to our table. The menu is an interesting mix of styles and courses. We saw some sandwiches come out to bar... More

One of the best New Year's Eve parties! We had a 3 course meal which was absolutely amazing! Being vegetarian I usually get "the short straw" without much thought gone into the meal, but Ceno's excelled themselves. They served me a selection of crudites with a mushroom pate, a chilli dip and a mayonnaise and the best tempura broccoli spears... More
