Reserved a table for six plus one high chair. Everything was very good so we will visit again soon. Plenty of space for us all and very good food. Yarm is a great place to visit and this restaurant is recommended.

Called at Cena for pizza and catch up with friends. Delightful premises and great service. Good choice of pizza topping and pizzas were delicious- thin crispy bases and a decent amount of topping- quality ingredients. Enjoyable lunch.

Having recently moved to Yarm, we really wanted to like Cena having heard good reviews and having had difficulty booking in, we assumed it must be good. The decor and ambience are spot on, it really is lovely inside. The staff were professional. The food,...More
