I love this place, the setting is delightful, there is ample parking and the interior is a very pleasant environment in which to enjoy a well thought and varied menu. We chose the early bird menu, and as other reviewers have mentioned, 3 little tapas style dishes for £7.95 a head is excellent value. Our choices were: Lasagne, knocci, meatballs... More

Me and my partner have frequently gone for meal at pesto in the past year or so I have always loved and the wide selection of vegetarian dishes, as I am vegetarian I often struggle with only one or two options on a menu but pesto have always had plenty and the vegetarian options delicious ones. On our last visit,... More

Me and my friend did the early bird 3 dishes for £7.95. We had bruschetta, pizza, gnocchi, chicken wings, goats cheese salad and calamari. All the dishes were excellent except the calamari which was really rubbery. The other dishes were really delicious and the portions were generous. The service was superb we were served by a young Asian man..didn't get... More

Visited for my sister's birthday. Although we visited at tea time the restaurant was not busy despite lots of waiters yet we had to constantly remind staff about food we had ordered and there were several mistakes throughout the evening. We ordered bread with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and butter. We had to remind them about the bread which eventually... More

We were greeted by a very bright and friendly female who was welcoming and quite delightful in her manner. The restaurant was quite quiet but to be expected on a Tuesday! The setting is really lovely in this restaurant, nice cosy corners and it had a cosy yet sophisticated feel. The back ground music was very fitting, including some French... More

The food and menu options are faultless, however the atmosphere is dead, we went on a Saturday night and it was practically empty! The waitress rushed us and ran around as though they were packed out. We arrived and as we were seated they took our starter order without having let us look at the menu, this was served almost...

Myself and pall were meeting a friend there for lunch, we were early but we were welcomed in and settled in for an afternoon of gossip. The menu was tapas style and we chose 3 dishes each, it was enough. I had the chicken wings which were fat and juicy. The meatballs which were large and just spicy enough, and... More

Arrived and were greeted by a man who was unpresentable and had a bad attitude. Once sat down the service was great (other waiters) and friendly. The food is good, nice selection and concept of choosing several smaller dishes. Nice to try new things. The surroundings were scenic with a relaxed atmoshpere in the restaurant. Overall very nice evening, definitely... More

Our first visit to Pesto (Prune Park) having driven past it for last couple of years.... Just popped in for tea, attentive staff asked if we had been before, talked us through the menu, food was brilliant, a great idea if you like to share and taste different dishes. All in all I would whole heartedly recommend trying this place,... More
