Garlic bread is soooo good!

I've never eaten here before despite living in the town for years, but I'm glad I did. We both had salads which were lovely and a garlic bread to share- I could've eaten the garlic bread purely as a main it was absolutely delicious! Lychee Martini's are lovely!

We've eaten at LP on a number of occasions. Really good range of food on the menu, and tapas/light bites are good if you don't want a bigger meal. On our most recent visit for lunch, it was quite busy, but the service was friendly, quick and attentive. Our burgers (beef and falafel) were tasty with a secretive, dressed side... More

As Grand-parents we take the children for meals out when they stay with us. Usually a chain restaurant of some kind. It was the youngest's turn to choose which one. She chose Pizza Hut, but we are not too bothered with that particular chain (They aren't what they used to be). So we stayed on the pizza tack and decided... More

I have eaten here many times before and the pizza's are always great, they are cooked in a proper oven and food always seems very fresh. Service is always a bit slow, they don't seem on it to seat you, take your order and get moving quick enough. We got there and there was only one table having drinks on... More

Went here for drinks on an evening out. Cocktails were lovely and staff incredibly friendly. Asked for a variation of a cocktail and staff were more than happy to accommodate my request. Lovely atmosphere, and certainly will be returning.

Walking along the restaurant by accident it was a great surprise . The staff were very helpful as my nan has many allergies and is gluten free. They soon sorted her something out. I have a burger with cheese and potato wedges. This was one of the best burgers I have ever had!

Visited here on Saturday night, quite busy so important to book. Staff were friendly and helpful. They had one real ale on tap which was nice Lacons ale. Starter I had Nachos which were nice and the salsa really tasty. For main most of us went for the pizzas, they are thin-crust with a wide selection of different toppings and... More
