Upon being seated and given the food menus I had to ask for the wine list from which I ordered. We then placed our food order and within 2 mins our starters had arrived. Prepared is one thing but food before drinks is not right. I was informed the wine I had ordered was upstairs and was being sourced but... More

We have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and this was a special one - my wife's birthday. Our favourite meal out is Italian and we are always happy to travel up to 45 minutes to go to what we regard as a good restaurant - Italian of course! This one is our favourite. Henly has a... More

Somewhat old-fashioned and a bit of a disappointment. Having said that the staff were very pleasant and friendly and the food wasn't bad - just nothing to particularly recommend it I'm afraid.

Really enjoyed our visit, the food was excellent across all three courses and the service was great. Very busy but had a good atmosphere. Shame that one manager with a moustache, dressed in a blue shirt kept visibly disciplining his staff, who were actually doing a really great job.

Visited this restaurant 29 November 2014 with friends and enjoyed one of the most perfect meals - plenty of choice mine was for parma ham with melon followed by sirloin steak in pepper sauce with fresh vegetables - steak melted in the mouth. The dessert trolley looked wonderful but too full - next time!!!!!!! Service par excellence It is not... More

This is where locals go. It's a nicely located place, where the food is basic (with a capital B) and predictable Italian fare . Food: nothing special, nothing harming, however some ingredients we suspect are frozen (e.g. prawns) due to very large menu, which is very hard to deliver with just fresh and/or local ingredients. Wine: Slightly questionable wine list... More

6 of us had dinner here last night and it was a really fantastic evening. It was full, buzzing with atmosphere and very welcoming as always. The food was outstanding and the venison probably the best I have ever eaten! Wine perfect and service great. I could not fault any aspect of the evening

If you want to have an excellent three course lunchtime Italian meal from a varied menu and have a good quality wine, in a warm and welcoming restaurant, with first class staff and to finish off picking from a lovely range of home made sweets from "the trolley" and all for around £25 per head, look no further than Villa...

We took our sister and brother in law to this restaurant to celebrate their 70th birthdays and had a really superb lunch. The food was excellent, the service exemplary and as for value for money, we thought it was amazing. We would certainly go again as it made such a pleasant change from the usual chain of restaurants. Thank you!

Recently attended a birthday lunch - see Johanne's review below. There were around 50 of us so we took over the whole restaurant for lunch on Sunday. Nice welcome with glasses of champagne ready - but even though loads of people were turning up, they were happy to go the bar to get me a lager (I'm Welsh!). Staff very... More
