We were out to enjoy our Sunday off together and add another meal to the birthday treats. The restaurant we were to eat at had mixed up the booking so we traveled back from the coast to Pepes in Beamish. Warm welcome, as usual, and the menu was extensive, Mr S opted for a pasta dish, as he was feeling... More

Came here for tea one night as live locally. Had garlic mushrooms for starter... They were just pure oil, absolutely disgusting, had salmon steak with rice for main, the salmon was lovely and tasty however the rice was like the microwave frozen rice with the carrots and peas in it, and was only edible with lots of salt on it!...

6 adults visited last Friday night. It's about £12.50 for the 3 course special. I have tried a few things off the menu over recent years & it's always tasty. Typical Italian restaurant & menu, nothing fancy, plenty choice & tasty. This time I had patè, lasagne and chocolate fudge cake. All were lovely. Service from most of the waiters... More

no better or worse than any other italian - not sure what all the fuss is about. Staff are a bit stuck up, can't get you out the door quick enough (was not busy we were their first customers of the day at 12noon)

Four of us ate here one evening between Christmas and New Year. We are pleased we made a reservation because the restaurant quickly became busy. The atmosphere was lively, service was quick and the food, which was good value for money, was tasty. My wife and I had the calzone which was very filling. We will definitely eat here again.

A fabulous family friendly restaurant. Have had lunchtime specials, Sunday lunches, special occasions and also my hubby's 65th birthday meal with all the family. Food is always excellent, well presented and have never been let down. Staff very obliging, for birthday we were allowed to take our own decorations for table and nothing was too much trouble. We've dined there... More
