Last minute lunch date with a friend at Il Forno. Booked a table online as I have eaten here before and I know it can get super busy. Food was delicious. I ordered the sirloin steak with porcini mushroom sauce with a side of garlic spinach. My friend ordered the ribeye and her came with a generous serving of mushrooms,... More

Don't choose the cheapest wine (not so cheap at £16:50 a bottle) only 11.5% vol so thin and tastes like a mix of vinegar and Ribena!! Pizzas were fine but some pasta dishes were not up to the usual standard and quantity was limited for the price. Service was slow although to be fair the restaurant was very busy. Waiters... More

This is typically a great restaurant, however, we arrived on a Friday after work expecting a good standard quality meal with good service. Unfortunately this was not the case - there was a large table that was taking the up the majority of the waiters, meaning that service was roughly 30 minutes longer than usual (we weren't informed of this)....

Used to really love this restaurant, was my go to place to celebrate, but seems to have really gone down hill. Portions have gone very stingy. E.g. I used to get 4 scallops on my favourite dish, today I got three cut in half to make it look more. Used to get a mountain of squid pasta, now a very... More

We visited on Friday for lunch, we have been meaning to try this place for ages and regret not having done so sooner! All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our food, the portions were enormous and the taste & quality of ingredients was fab. The profiterole cheesecake was to die for! The ambience of this restaurant & the staff are... More

This is our favourite place to dine! We visit regularly. Super delicious menu, spoilt for choice. Excellent service from start to finish. Highly trained staff, recommending wines to compliment the menu. Beautiful foods, wines, desserts and coffees. Exceptionally clean. It is the perfect place!

I came here with my partner for a meal. I had scallops risotto which we shared I can honestly say that I'm normally not a fan of risotto but this was really nice and if I could get the same some place else I wouldn't hesitate to order this as a main meal. I ordered fro the special menu which... More

Called in here at 4.45 after a great afternoon at the Horse show. Just in time for Lunch menu which was excellent value, perfect size portions and fabulous food. Nice glass of beer to start, followed by lovely bottle of red. Lasagna was delicious and Carbonara best my husband had tasted. We managed three courses and topped it off with... More
