The Ceno (from coena - Latin for supper) is a restaurant with a soft atmosphere and food of reasonable quality but expect to pay more than the norm. Nice position for outdoor eating in warm weather

The food here can be very good - on the rare occasion I had a problem the management was very quick to sort out the issue- which was a cold meal. The large bar area makes this a good place to sit and have a drink and the outside decking is a pleasure on a warm summers evening after work.

We are fairly regular at Ceno, because it always offers food a good notch above other pubs and restaurants in quality. The price are a bit higher, £16 - £20 for some of the mains, but they are always enjoyed by all and certainly have an x-factor! Nibbles are really tasty, which just adds to the overall experience. Starters are... More
