We had a family meal to celebrate a birthday at Prego and were not disappointed. The restaurant was abuzz with diners and everybody seemed to be having a good time. A wide range of dishes was sampled and we were not disappointed. The gnocchi was beautifully soft, the risotto delicious, the pizza perfect and the desserts delightful. The only slight... More

Had dinner here with my fiance. Although we didn't have a reservation we were given a nice table at the front of the restaurant. The waiter was excellent. He knew everything on the food and wine menus and helped us pick the right wines for our three courses. Food was really good - we both ordered vegetarian (their veggie selection... More

My children got good report cards at school so we said they could pick a restaurant to celebrate. They choose Prego so being a wet Saturday night we got there nice and early as tables can be scarce and they don't take bookings. We were seated straight away and drink orders taken. Apparently the kitchen had made too many garlic... More

Although we had not booked we sat at the bar for barely 10min's in front of the lovely warm open fire and had a glass of wine. When we were seated we well looked after by the very busy wait staff through out our time there. The restaurant was full, so lots of talking which added to the ambience of... More

We just popped in for lunch & whilst it was really busy on a Friday they had a table available. Didn't seem phased that we were going to share a pizza & not have drinks, very fast friendly service & lovely food.

I must have been to Prego hundreds of times with hundreds of friends, it never fails to impress. On Sunday I had the Prego Pie a winter menu warmer. My choice was the envy of the table.

I've been here before and the service is excellent. You couldn't fault them. We had a couple of wines and the Fillet. Outside. The place was buzzing. It was a late lunch for us. Service and food was perfect. When I went to pay the bill there were people walking out thanking them for a great meal. You just have... More

Excellent food and service so consistent for the last ten years. Parking is easy. Great to sit outside in summer days. Upbeat atmosphere makes you feel comfortable if you like hectic places. Staff is attentive and professional they would offer you a blanket on chilly nights. Great to come with kids there too. Good kids menu plus coloring in pencils... More

Saw the good reviews on here and decided to try Prego out . Fantastic service (efficient, polite AND entertaining) I have to say my initial reaction to the food was mixed but when I stopped thinking about what I had been expecting. ... and just took the dishes on their own merits, we all found they were really good.

the pie is a treat, meaty and just the right size, a perfect winter dish, enjoyed with a wide and reasonable priced wine list, best enjoyed by the glass as variety is fun; haven't been in the summer, but wfor a rich night at god prices, highly recommended
