Mains were lasagne...the most congealed overcooked processed meal i have ever encountered.just simply inedible. Arribiatta was a bowl of mushed overcooked... More

eaten here twice, do take advantage of the happy hour if like my family you like to eat a bit earlier on account of younger children. The staff are polite, the view is lovely from the restaurant... I had Tagliatelle Padrone which was very tasty but quite a lot hotter than I expected, my eyes were watering, not so bad... More

This is a nice Italian restaurant in a hotel up the hill on the way out of town. The décor is nice with a yellow theme and signed pictures of famous celebrities. The wine bottles are displayed well too. The staff are very friendly but also very efficient and industrious. One negative is that you don't always get what you... More

This review is full of negatives so best to get the only good point out of the way first. We arrived at 8pm to be met with a warm welcome from the manageress and a young waiter showed us to our table and offered us two menus. Now on to the bad bits, note that at this stage he did... More

My partner and I came here for afternoon tea with a groupon deal. We thought it was excellent. The restaurant was empty so we had fast service and the staff were very welcoming. The afternoon tea was huge with sandwiches, scones, cake and pastries and a selection of jams. The pot of cream was substantial too which I liked -... More

We booked an Afternoon Tea with "Bubbly" through Groupon. What a disappointment and nothing at all like the illustration. There were 2 slices of thick brown bread with a spicy chicken filling, 2 slices of thick white bread spread with what appeared to be some sort of coleslaw is the only way to describe it. Not even the crusts cut... More

This has very recently changed hands with changes afoot, and so perhaps this is reason for a few criticisms. The service was mixed, with some young new staff eager to help but maybe still with a few things to learn. The wine list is quite small but adequate - we would have expected a little more choice. We ordered small... More

After reading the bad reviews was rather dubious but decided to give it a go after visiting Cragside. Good meal and attentive service. A suggestion - the menus are looking rather tired so would get some new ones printed. Would recommend anyone to have a meal here.

Surprisingly good Italian restaurant hidden on the first floor of a hotel. Staff were very good with the children in the party and the food was very reasonable.

Although still advertised on their web site and the board on the footpath we were told that they no longer served Sunday lunch due to lack so support .we went to the Queens Head instead and had a very nice Sunday lunch.
