We are in the Market square, right in the centre of town, half way down the main street. We are a 50 seater restaurant, recently renovated. The kitchen and foyer are downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. We are a bistro style establishment, we serve pizza, pasta, steak, fish, chicken and salads. Our emphasis is on fresh, local and organic where possible. We have been in the same building for 30 years and are family run.

Great bistro to sit in. The seating area is a little basic but the food and atmosphere makes up for it. Specials are unreal. Everyone has to try the Il Diplomatico

Not easy to identify because it looks like a Take Away, but as soon as you are in the restaurantin the first floor, you are astonished how nice it is and ask yourself , why do they hide it. The food was excellent, all very fresh and of very good quality. See you again

I eat here regularly and can only recommend this restaurant. The food is fresh, well presented and reasonably priced. I normally try the Spinach & ricotta cannelloni which is fantastic and cooked to order. Aside from the set menu, there's normally a list of daily specials. The staff are excellent. You can tell it's a good spot as it's normally... More

I've only eaten here once but really enjoyed my visit. The lady was friendly and very helpful and the service was quick. I had a steak sandwich which was very very tasty and reasonably priced. Lovely lunch and I'd definitely go back again! Lovely choice of food on the menu.

Dear Ursula, Thank you very much for your very kind review, I remember yourself and your friend, you were a pleasure to serve. I am glad Alfie pointed you in the right direction. We are closing for a week in November to renovate downstairs, so hopefully it will reflect how nice upstairs is! Thanks again and hope to see you... More

I visited Pats in the square with my family after reading great reviews on this website. I wasn't impressed. The pizza was thick and soggy and the kids pasta portion wasn't nearly enough for my 5 and 6 year olds. However, on a plus note the staff who waited on us were very friendly.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review. I am very sorry you did not enjoy your pizza and that you found the kids portion to be too small. I hope, if you visit us again, we can improve on your previous experience. We take complaints very seriously and will go beyond the call of duty... More
