Had a great family meal in Pat's on the Square last Saturday evening. Food and service are consistently great - good value for money and plenty of choice on the menu.

The Yellow Pepper is located just a short distance from this restaurant down the main street. The difference in price between the two restaurants is not much, but the gulf in quality is... More

This place always seems to be packed, so we always book before hand. The pizzas are really good as are the pasta options. I would def recommend this for small and large parties.
