Used to like this place, always great portion sizes, food is ok, but not exceptional. Last time we visited we sat upstairs, I find this area, poor and lacking in the ambience that the downstairs area provides. Still, it's worth a visit.

I've been here a few times and I've learned not to go at lunch times as the menu is poor at best. If how ever you go in the evening it's a completely different restaurant. Worth a visit in the evenings lovely food and atmosphere. Stay away for lunch tho.

Have been coming for years and never ever fails to disappoint. Plenty of choice and as a slightly fussy eater never have a problem. Asked for adjusts to be made to my meal and they were done efficiently and professionally. Thank you very much!

We have been using this restaurant for many years & can honestly say have never had a bad meal...The staff have always been very helpful with regards to allergy advice (our son has a peanut allergy) & nothing is too much trouble.Takeaway meals we have found to be just as good. The calzone stephano is amazing!! Keep up the good... More

Been here lots of times after shopping. Great service, quick and lovely fresh food. It is what it is no frills, good food. Great prices, won't break the bank. Would definitely recommend.

Been here a few times in the evening with family and enjoyed the food... Maybe due to the fact that I'd sunk a few glasses of wine before the starter had come, however I have also visited at lunch time to try out the cheaper menu and I think that the quality of food is very poor. The man who... More

Have visiited here on a number of times over a greater number of years. I can honestly say that time stands still. Same decor, same disinterested waiting staff and management. Add to that the menu and you have a recipe for blandness with a hint of apathy. Much better eateries in the area with staff that make you feel welcome... More
