I love this restaurant! The meals are cheap and high quality. Staff are friendly and happy to help with anything. The new layout and design of the place is less homely and Italian like, but there is a lot more tables. The restaurant does get VERY hot, and the doors tend to have to be open which... read more

It is a typical Italian restaurant offering up an extremely warm and hospitable welcome every time. The menu choice is extensive and it also... More

We eat here on a regular basis and always enjoy the food. It is fresh and tasty and we always receive good service. However, the general cleanliness of the restaurant is definitely in decline. Today we were seated next to a wall which was covered in food splatters and dirty hand prints, there was also food - both dried on... More

Having read reviews on Pepe's ( albeit recently they seem to be sliding ) we decided to give it a go since we'd spent a pleasant afternoon at Beamish and Pepe's is very near. What a poor decision. It's in what I imagine was a converted pub/ working men's club ??...all one one level with open plan and seats ranging... More

Me and my husband often come here for our Sunday lunch, the carvery is delicious with plenty of meat and a great selection of veg and the thickest, very tasty gravy. If I could make a suggestion to them its that the pudding menu could do with updating as the selection is very basic and also the cheesecake used to... More

We've been going for years and if it's your birthday you get a celebratory song and cake to go with it! The service is very friendly and quick too, the food is great and I especially like the steak. It's definitely worth a visit.
