Booked this venue on strength of the great reviews but sadly we were very disappointed. We didnt feel we were made welcome by the staff apart from the youngest members of the team. Remaining staff were busy fawning over their regulars and attending to them leaving us to try to catch their eye for wine list etc so not a... More

One of my favourite places to eat: always a relaxed un-rushed evening with great food and good service. Been going for years and will always go back

We have been going here off and on for about 15 years and it never disappoints. The food on offer is of a wide variety, and there is both an a la carte and set menu to choose from. The restaurant is a family business run by two Sardinian brothers, Salvatore and Francesco, and you couldn't hope to meet two... More

We were there friends to celebrate a birthday. Once again the food was excellent, just as you would expect from Sardis. The staff are very efficient and friendly. It is always a pleasure to visit this place. Back again in May

There were 8 of us all having different meals and all meals were beautifully presented and excellent quality. The service we received was superb nothing was too much trouble. It is quite intimate and perfect for a laid back quality meal with friends or couples. We had between us the steak. chicken, duck, pork and rack of lamb all perfectly... More

Felt as though I had gone back in time. Definately could do with a total makeover. The menu did little to impress me and what I eventually chose I did not enjoy.

Last visited this place over 10 years ago. My view at the time was that the food was very good but the venue was quite awful. Unfortunately a decade later it appears that nothing has changed. First impressions from the outside are that management have long since stopped caring about the place and this is confirmed on entry.The decor is... More

Was time to return to our favourite northeast restaurant again, as ever we were not disappointed with the menu, service or price. If anyone has complaints about this place they are either people who should be in kfc or those who don't appreciate fine cuisine. The antipasto starter is to die for, 2 plates packed full of meat, pate, smoked... More
