Constantly Good Food.

Visited with the family and we are yet to receive a bad meal or service (touch-wood). The 3 course special is really good value for money. I had pollo Kiev as my main and it was delicious. Will definitely be returning.

We have eaten here as a family group for many family occasions over the years, but were very disappointed tonight. Even though it wasn't particularly busy the Service was really slow, (had to ask three times for bill) and the food was average. If it had been our first visit we certainly wouldn't be coming back.

I visit here on a regular basis and never have any problems with the food or the staff. Top class food and service. Couple month back i found out that the lovely young man(believe he is/was assistant manager) was leaving to try out new job prospects, fair to say he was definitely going to be a huge miss! He seemed... More

Visited with friends on a mid week evening. Service was at best average until the girl bringing us our drinks dropped the tray spilling wine over our table and onto my trousers. Did bring some roll eventually. No real apology given. My trousers are fine, dried out ok. Very nervous about getting our new drinks. Not a good start. Starters... More

Disappointed, have nt been here for a long time and to be honest I won't rush back. The place was very busy so it obviously appeals to other people.. Big portions but pretty tasteless .. I had a prawn cocktail to start lots of prawns on a bed of salad but no sauce, then had Sunday Carvey, again loads of... More

2nd attempt at pepes and wont be going back. Went with a group it was fairly quiet. I ordered mussels, expected an Italian style pot with a bowl of lemon water but what I got was large what looked like vaccum packed supermarket mussels in a congealed sauce. Main was just as poor a steak with a Diane sauce poured... More

I have been Pepes twice now and i wont be giving it a 3rd attempt. I am not a food snob but all i can say is if you like average pizza and pasta food then this may be for you but many things are deep fried and the sauces are very average. Sorella Sorella, Sale Pepes are much better... More

My uncle in law celebrated his 60th at Pepes today and we went for a carvery lunch. Being experts in the field having tried a number of local carveries I have to say Pepes is the best I've had in a long time. The meat was delicious and we were given generous proportions. The stuffing was baked to perfection as... More

Had a table booked for 7:15pm on a Monday night, to catch up with an old friend. Shown promptly to our table, and staff very friendly. Enjoyed my food, had half portion of pasta bolognese and a salad. Unfortunately, we were seated next to a large birthday party, maybe approx 20 people, service to our table was unaffected, however, noise... More
