It's noisy here and sometimes a little cold out the back, however the food is lovely and the service good. I have been here many times over the years and will be going again.

my friends suggested going with them for a meal to the cappuccino bar, my first thoughts were the seating was a little cramped but we will see how it goes, until our male waiter turned up, he was rude from the start and miserable, all the staff were checking to see if people were finished with their food so they...

In summary: plentiful tasty food at an inexpensive price. I would strongly recommend this restaurant to my friends and family. Went midweek for dinner which my son booked. The place was absolutely full,albeit some tables were Christmas parties, so probably advisable to book ahead! Calamari fritti probably the tenderest squid I've had in a restaurant. My main course (sea bass... More

Nine of us dined here for a pre-Xmas lunch . We have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions and have always found the food to be tasty, well presented and value for money. The staff are helpful and attentive and the atmosphere welcoming. The resteraunt is on two levels so access to wheelchair users may be difficult... More

Ate here with some friends on Saturday evening. Two courses for under £10 is super great value. The food was full of flavour and they do not skimp on the portions. Would definitely eat here again.

Enjoyed Saturday evening at restaurant that was packed as always. Terrific value for 2 courses for less than £10. The pasta and risotto is always superb and was again. Starters not very refined, particularly the antipasto. Staff could do smile more and engage rather than just process orders. The house white in carafes is cheap but tastes like it so... More

We have been to this restaurant many times & have always had value for money. You need to book well in advance especially at weekends. The food can be at bit bland at times but the portions are very generous . The downside is there is only one toilet and often there is a queue which is not ideal for... More

We booked a table here recently, this is a well established and fairly busy establishment. The food was very good value for money (especially since there is an offer of two courses starter&main for under £10 - which is pretty impressive). Both my partner and I were however left disapponted with the starter ... I think they call it mushroom... More
