We went here for an early bird tea and weren't disappointed. The menu choice was first class and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The portions are generous for the cheaper menu and the desserts are to die for. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and well thought out extension. We will definitely go back again

Due to building works being carried out on a part of our building it has been necessary for us to put a partition wall up and reduce the restaurant to enable us to keep trading.

Called in on a Saturday afternoon on our way out shopping. I was pleasantly surprised by the fixed price 3 course menu, only £8.95. The meal arrived in good time, no long delays between courses, the portions were generous and tasted good. All in all a good experience! Would definitely recommend Pepes to anyone.

Visited in a group for Christmas meal. The food was o.k. roast potatoes had been reheated, stuffing tasteless, vegetable fine but meat and trimmings cold and served on cold plates. Desserts choices were all stodgy puddings or ice cream. Starters were also quite filling. Could do with some lighter choices . Service was fine but strange arrangement to order drinks... More

Good value for money, food was nice, I would like to compliment the waiters who were friendly and polite, and did a great job on what was a busy evening with large parties dining. Have a good set of staff who worked hard.
