Recently dined here with a large group. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the food was and I really enjoyed the pasta and pizza dishes I chose. However, the one choice of white wine available at the bar was not great and the whole restaurant (including the toilets) are in desperate need of refurbishment. Food was good but I... More

My family and I ( 8 of us in total, including two children aged 6 and 12) ate at the restaurant on the 2nd of January 2016, the service was first class, the food was freshly cooked and delicious, tasty and extremely good sized portions at what I must say was a really competitive price, the Irish coffee at the...

Went for stepdads birthday recently. Had the restaurant to ourselves. Good service by young gentlemen. Starter wasn't brilliant (breaded whitebait). The main course was terrible. I ordered beef cannelloni. It came and I had to send it back as there was no meat inside! It was just spinach. Without a fuss they brought me a fresh one which wasn't much... More

Made a booking for 16, fortunately 4 couldn't make it because there was only room for 12 in the back room we were shown to. The meal started well, waitress was attentive and the starters were OK. Things started to get comical with the main courses, neither waitresses understood the menu and it became a guessing game as to which... More

Lovely first experience in a private booth, the server was attentive and helpful in regards to the menu. He answered any and all questions. Also enjoyed the quality of the food as well at the portion size. Was a good start to a memorable evening.

A charming old fashioned restaurant with a 90s feel to it in a Georgian era building, la pergola was a pleasant surprise for me and my 3 girl friends. The food was very yummy and seemed authentic Italian, and the service was prompt and friendly. Olives and garlic bread to start then creamy chicken and mushroom crepes for mains were... More

Would be easy to bypass this place, but frankly it is better than so many places which Trip Advisor has ahead of it - and this is completely unfair. The food is brilliantly presented, the choices are wise-ranging, the setting is really cost and comfortable, and the staff really pay attention.
