Wanted Pizza local to where we live and on a friends advice visited at short notice early on a Friday evening. Heaving with people already so took that as a good sign. Managed to fit us in and had an excellent couple of starters followed by Pizza mains. Good honest food at a very reasonable price. Excellent! Will visit again.

Go to this bar on a regular basis. Service and food always good. The menu has a great selection of Italian foods. It is worth trying.

This is a small restaurant slightly away from the main town, that you could easily walk past thinking it's a coffee shop/cafe. But, don't be fooled by it's simple frontage. Inside is a fantastic meal just waiting to be ordered. Over the years we have visited The Cappuccino Bar several times and it has never disappointed. The staff are great,... More

Had ordered the vegetable starter with balsamic vinegar. When I received the plate I had two table spoons of over cooked vegetables covered in half a cup of thick in edible vinegar. I was flabbergasted that someone was expected to eat that. Not only that it tasted so horrible. Maybe if you hate veg and want it masked maybe that's... More

We have eaten in here several times over the last few years and it always has a buzzy atmosphere and friendly service, with excellent value food and good Italian lager on the pump. The pizzas are consistently good and we have ordered over the phone to take away when having a lazy Friday night in, and they're always fresh and... More

I've been twice both I the evening and for lunch, there were very reasonable prices at both times. It is a very small restaurant and the tables are very close together but this is a very small negative, both the food and staff were fantastic and I will definitely be returning.

I've been to this restaurant a number of times and it has always delivered. The food is amazing and so cheap at 2 courses for £10!! The decor isn't Gok Won but if you're looking for decent food then you should dine here. WARNING- it get's very busy, so make sure you book a table and you won't be disappointed!

I have had a meal on 4 occasions at The Cappucino Bar and each occasion has been a real pleasure. The atmosphere and ambience of the restaurant are second to none, the menu is comprehensive, the food is superbly presented and full of flavour, with a good selection of wine, lagers, beer (old speckled hen is a welcome addition) and...
