We have visited Sale Pepe many times since it opened in 2004 and I honestly don't know why I haven't reviewed it before. The staff are always friendly and efficient and the food has never disappointed, always fresh and tasty On this visit we had homemade chicken pate (my favourite) and delicious cream of tomato and basil soup for starters....

Went tonight for happy hour. Great staff! Very friendly. Unfortunately the food let it down, fish was great, giant mussels but pasta was wet, soggy and sloppy. Will defo go back though, maybe just a bad, busy night?

We visited as a family of three on a Sunday at 5 and were tempted by the excellent value 2 course meal. The starters were simple but very tasty and our pizza/pasta mains excellent also. The staff were brilliant with our 1 year old who had a great time

My son and I were visiting some friends in the area and were taken to Sale Pepe for dinner. The staff were welcoming and courteous (the owner even took my son off to show him the kitchen) and the food was excellent. Some of the best chicken dishes I have tasted in a long time. When we are back in... More

A true gem in the middle of Shotley Bridge, we dined here on a busy Saturday night. 6 of us in total, on arrival the place was buzzing we were swiftly seated in the lounge and offered drinks.

I never write reviews but felt compelled to write after reading a prior review. I was visiting Sale Pepe with friends on Saturday and we heard the previous reviewer at the bar shouting on about chewing gum. Apparently it had been found in food and someone on their table was 'chewing' it before they realised - if chewing gum had... More

I've been coming to this restaurant for years. Sometimes on family occasions and sometimes with friends. We come at least once a month so thought I should give them a review. To be honest I have never had a bad meal. At first I would stick with the same food but now I'm trying a lot more. This is because... More

I'm writing this review on behalf of my partner who visited for a family meal last week. The food was of good standard until the point of the deserts when one of the party found eaten chewing gum in her desert.....DISCUSTING...I think you would agree. She spent the rest of the evening feeling very upset and unwell. The restaurant staff... More

Taken to Sale Pepa while visiting friends in Consett, this is a favourite place for them and I can see why, food is great and prices very reasonable, very enjoyable evening. Will definitely be back when visiting the area again.
