Visited after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor following a day out at Beamish. We were hungry and tired and the early bird special was perfect. Food was nice and fresh, service was prompt and attentive and the wine was lovely. Can't ask for more.

Great little cheap and cheerful place, fab for little ones early evening, sparklers in their ice cream! Building was meant as something other than restaurant so it's a vast area, usually busy, but few windows and can be hot and claustrophobic. Service good. Worth a try early eve, especially with the kids.

As a family we go to Pepes several times a year and it's never really changed. The Italian is tasty and cheap (though not what I'd call authentic...but who cares if it tastes nice?), but it's the carvery that draws us back every time. Big selection of meat and veg, both of which are replenished regularly- something which other carveries... More

Lovely Sunday carvery. 4 choices of meat, beef, turkey gammon and pork. The beef and turkey were so tender. All served with good choice of seasonal potatoes and veg, stuffing and Yorkshire pudding. Rich tasty gravy. Staff are very polite and helpful. Look forward to returning soon.

We went to pepes for a long overdue couples night out and we're pleased we did. The waiting staff were all lovely and friendly and good at their job. We both had potato skins for starters which came with garlic and bbq dips. They were cooked beautifully and not at all greasy. Then my hubby had sirloin steak Di Mare... More
