I've always been to Bella at least 6 times a year, but recently been for Sunday lunch twice in 3 weeks. At £9.95 for 2 courses, its a bargain! The staff were friendly, the food as per description and service good for a large group on each visit. I really like the new booths in the smaller side of the... More

Husband and I were staying nearby for a family celebration the next day, and needed somewhere to eat out on Saturday night. We booked this restaurant in advance, having eaten here six years before, on another visit to the area. What a pleasant surprise to walk in and see the smart, modern refurbishments! The place had a real buzz about... More

This is a lovely, local, Italian restaurant. Very nicely furnished & lovely food. We have been going for many years. Our last visit however left us feeling deflated & very let down. It was my 74 year old mothers birthday meal & her 2 young grandchildren had spent most of the afternoon baking a cake & decorating it in only... More

As bad a service as I've had at a restaurant in a long time and when mentioned to staff...nothing, no apology, no questions. Couple next to us kicked off massively about portion sizes, he was taking photos of his main course out of disbelief. 25 minutes from drink order to arrival...repeated every time we wanted a drink. 40 minutes between...

The restaurant was very busy when we arrived: we had booked in advance and were taken straight to our table. The service and food was excellent. Plenty of choice on the menu, something for everyone, would recommend a visit. Will be revisiting with friends.

We recently dined at this restaurant again. It has been nicely refurbished since our last visit. The food as always was excellent and very tasty. The staff were attentive and professional. I can recommend this restaurant as a nice eating experience.
