Just to help others, the Paparazzi has closed down

We have visited the Paparazzi many times over the years and were disappointed to see that when we visited on October 2014, it had closed down. We tried to find out before we went if it was still open or not and couldn't get definite details but I can confirm that this restaurant is no longer open.

First impressions were of a vast space with zero atmosphere, not helped by the complete lack of music, clearly too tight to buy a PRS licence. We were ushered into the back room away from everyone else where we sat by ourselves looking through steamed up windows. We were left here for quite a while before someone came along to... More

A bit of a chequered existence, due to circumstances, Diego was forced to move upstairs for a while; but things didn't work out. Paparazzi was the old name, and now the new name is Sambuca, and the restaurant has moved back downstairs. Still excellent value for money; they do take-aways as well as sit-downs. If you're ever up the North... More

A late booking had been taken by the restaurant that caused staffing problems at the beginning of the evening. However this was pulled round and all our meals were delivered at their usual high standards. Well done!
