We visited as a family of four. We hadn't booked but as it was 6.45 we managed to get a table without problem. It did then fill up and it had a nice atmosphere The menu was full of tempting choices and although there were no kid's menus they are happy to do a smaller portion of the full range.... More

Wondered in late, and as they were cleaning up after closing. They could have just turned me away; but, they offered to serve me some food anyway. Food was good, not great. But, the service was absolutely first rate.

I visited this place in April and there were about four other tables occupied. We have two small kids ( 1 and 4) and the staff were quick to bring a baby chair and colouring book for our older one. I had been told by a friend that their pizzas were very good so I ordered a "Pizza Lanza" which... More

I like this restraint a lot, I have eaten here many times and am always surprised at the quality and taste of the food, anything from the pizza (calzone is devine) to the steak.. with baked potatoes.. place could do with modernizing and staff could smile more...

My husband and I ate here in june and we were not overly impressed. Firstly you would hear a pin drop in this place. They have no background music and the decor is a bit strange to say the least. very very dated and in need of refurb. the food (we both got Pasta dishes) were not nice.... I hated... More

where would I start.... the muppets music blaring from the speaker singing Christmas music was probably the funniest thing in a long time for an Italian restaurant. food was really poor, and it just lacked flavour completely. The waitress tried, but it was just a car crash. Avoid at all costs. but Miss Piggy singing "Santa Baby" did bring a... More

Visited this restaurant one evening and was very disappointed. There was one other table of diners waiting on their food. The kitchen was open and as we entered the chef pointed to a table in the corner. The chef/waiter took his time bringing us menus. We choose a chicken dish and a mushroom dish. While we waited for our food... More

We found this restaurant by chance when passing through the town at dusk. Delicious meal; great prices; super friendly staff! We were having difficulty in locating our B & B for the night & the cook was making calls on our behalf between cooking dishes! (Thankfully they were not packed at the time!). What a delight. We hope to return... More
