On arrival we were given a very warm welcome and seated promptly. Very impressed with the... read more

First visit here last night (5/2/16) with hubby and we were pleasantly surprised. Lovely makeover of the old pub making it very pleasant surroundings. We were welcomed by friendly staff, seated immediately (had pre-booked) and drinks order taken promptly. Our order for food was taken no more than 10 mins after perusing the menu. The food is all small plates... More

Wonderful food, great service with a lovely waitress. Service was prompt and we had a good table. All courses were to a high standard and the atmosphere in this place is great. Feel like you are in a city centre.

There's a choice of 2 different lunch menus and both have a good selection. I've been here more than once and I absolutely love the food. Service is fast and friendly and my experience is pleasant every time. I would happily go to Pesto again and again, despite the fact I usually prefer to try somewhere new when I eat... More

Out of multiple visits I can honestly say I have never had a bad experience. The food offers a varied menu with something to suit almost everyone's taste. Staff and service is awesome, the venue has a really relaxed and comfortable feel about it, and the price is extremely reasonable. Definitely worth a visit!!!
