4th time here for us, always on the same deal as part of the Park House b&b £99 offer. Same service, ambiance, value, and quality of food, our complaint is over one course, dessert. The choices have reduced, and what's left is not great IMO. You can have any of the £5 desserts as part of deal, but they're bog... More

We went to the early sitting as we had children with us and they were made to feel welcome. The food was delicious. Great home cooked Italian pasta (no pizza) and lots of other great sounding food. Decent selection of Italian beers and good selection of wine. Friendly service but fairly slow. Table was booked for 5pm and we didn't... More

The ambience of this old inn (meaning of Locanda) was lessened by 'mine hostess' whose greeting was more curt than courteous. Our visit was part of a deal, so on arrival, no decent menu for us! A double sided sheet of A4 was our menu along with the somewhat surly advice that this was all we could choose from without... More

We too had a travelzoo voucher. Unfortunately we had to cancel out first booking (family issues). We were well accommodated with a choice of other dates. The reception was good, full description of the food etc, The food was absolutely delicious, the attention both to the food and us was second to none. We will eat here again and fully... More

After hearing how good this restaurant was I bought a travel zoo voucher - why did I bother!! After reading the reviews I am quite relieved it wasn't just us, we arrived to the restaurant and entered to the bar area where no one was and then a lady appeared I think this being the owner! A trip to college... More

Don't buy a Travelzoo voucher with them - they are very loathed to help you redeem it or accommodate you - must have signed up to it begrudgingly and felt like a 2nd class citizen trying to book then re-book. Not helpful at all to try and solve quite normal problem when re-booking

Have to admit that I only came across this restaurant which is a good 30 miles from where I live via a Groupon offer. Just wish it was nearer . We had the 4 course "Il Matrimonio" menu and every mouthful was just exquisite. Such a change to be presented with perfectly judged/sized portions rather than the pile it up... More

We tried the ricotta and venison Gnocci etc. it was all very nice and we had a lovely three hour dining experience . The prosecco and wine were excellent. The lady who greeted us was... More

A wonderful Lunch experience. The Service was truly excellent (very friendly) and we were met by 'Cinzia' (Cynthia) Senior Staff. We both chose a simple but delicious starter - a selection of Olives and home baked breads served warm with high quality Olive Oil. Our main course we both chose was Veal in a special sauce together with Green bean... More
