I recommend this place very highly. It's a small room with only about half a dozen tables, but the owners take a lot of care to prepare really excellent food. There is a good selection of things on the printed menu, and a specials board which is always tempting. Over the years I've had spaghetti, aubergine bake, vegetable hotpot and... More

We had a fantastic Italian Evening at the Front room with a lasagne better than I had ever tasted. Many people in our party commented on how delicious it was. It was served with home-made garlic bread and a rocket side salad which was very authentic. For dessert we had a beautiful home-made tiramisu. We were very well looked after.... More

Visited here 22nd November and had a lovely meal. Table is yours for the night. Nothing was too much trouble and I couldn't fault the food at all. Even serenade by the owner when he got his guitar out and strummed a few songs. In fact my friend and I were last to leave. Give it a go....you won't be... More

My husband and I found this restaurant by chance on our way home. The staff were very friendly and service was good. Our starters were lovely I had the Greek Salad and my husband had mackerel pâté, both were very good. For main course I had stiffado which although nice was a bit bland, it was quite different from any... More

The Front Room is a small storefront restaurant where booking is a must. We were a party of four on a Thursday evening and all tables were full. Offerings are written on chalkboards and the selections were good. The wine and beer menu is quite limited. All in all, a pleasant evening with good food and attentive service.

Not my idea of a dining experieve - felt like a cafe really with overprice tags - sorry Not terribly romantic and being constantly asked if we liked the food throughout was slightly off putting. Food was nice - but was not a cosy atmosphere

Been eating here regularly since it opened 10 years ago. Wonderful mediterranean style food, freshly prepared, reasonably priced, excellent and personal service from owners and staff at all times. I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone. If you have not already been, put it on your list.

We love going to the front room. You know that Alan and Jo really care about ensuring you enjoy your meal and they always have time to chat and check that everything is OK with the meal. The food is healthy and tasty, portion sizes just right and menu choice a pleasure to read. We recently had a big family... More
