Lovely night out!

I haven't been here in quite a while having moved out of the area but just seeing the name come up in Trip Advsor made me remember how much I love this place! I loathe the term 'cheap and cheerful' but Cappucino Bar is verging on that, but in a great way. It's nice food that you're more than... read more

Really enjoyed my dinner at this restaurant. Lovey conservatory area out the back and a solid menu choice. Excellent value for money as food tasted fresh, authentic and was generous in portion size. Worth booking at weekends as there are good meal deals to be enjoyed. A fun evening with good service and enjoyable atmosphere. A little gem.

Always good value. There were six of us and we had usual mix of starters which were all great apart from the cheesey mushrooms. We have had many times and used to be coated in a thick cheese sauce. Last night almost no cheese and just a thin garlic butter that we couldn't eat as dripped off. Anti-pasta great and... More

We are regulars at the Cappuccino and find it difficult to fault at lunch time. A varied menu including a drink for £5 to £7. The food is fresh, quickly served and always at the right temperature, I don't now how they do it in such a small kitchen but Imdon't care, they do. Difficult to beat on value and... More

Came for lunch most recently and was amazed how cheap the lunch deals are with drinks included. Would definitely tre commend many of the risottos and the canneloni's. The homemade ice cream for desert was... More

Generally really good food and service. Food can sometimes taste different and lately we have noticed that portions are smaller (perhaps not a bad thing) and not quite as tasty as before. Excellent value as 2 courses for £10. Not sure if they are trying to reduce overheads but good all the same. Can get very busy and noisy.
