Visited on a recent Saturday night after many years away from the area. Went with family who are still local and was a bit surprised that (a) you cannot book at all and (b) you will probably have to wait over an hour for a table (especially on a Saturday for 8 people). We arrived at 6.00 and got a... More

The lady with the blonde hair on reception was so rude and It felt like I was at school being watching by the teacher! Awful atmosphere and totally put off by her! Will NOT be returning due to the staff!

Visited a few times in the last couple of months. This time we went during the week on a Wednesday. Service was very slow and good was overpriced and under seasoned. Would return but would expect major changes.

The atmosphere on a Saturday night is very busy and crowded. We waited an hour and a half for a table, there was nowhere to sit. You cannot book to avoid this. The food and service when you eventually get a table is so good, it's such a shame that an evening out is spoilt by waiting, getting hungrier and... More

There is generally a wait to be seated as you cannot book tables in advance, however once seated the experience begins. Excellent ,friendly and not over attentive service is foollowed by well prepared and cooked meals that are never too large as to over face but never too small to leave you wanting more

We arrived at 5.45pm on a Saturday evening, expecting not to have to wait too long as it was fairly early. Oh how wrong were we. The lady with her waiting list informed us it would be about 45 mins wait so we reluctantly stayed as there is a waiting area with bar. 45 mins came and went and when... More

Pigeon and prawns for me! Wow the taste was amazing. From the specials board Pigeon,bacon,mushroom and peas. Then prawn spaghetti with garlic. Wine was great too, not been here for years but it's still going and people queuing at the bar is a good sign it still offers great food and service. Toilets could do with a revamp but everywhere...

Booked here for a family party to celebrate an 18th birthday. When I say 'booked', I really mean I tried to book, but they don't take bookings. We arrived at about 7.15pm on a Saturday night and unfortunately it was about two hours before we sat down to eat. It was a little too late for the younger ones to... More

Visited Rinaldi's for the first time on Sunday for a quick family dinner. Turned up without booking mid afternoon, was able to be seated straight away no waiting time. Huge choice on the menu, but i decided to try out a pizza. Thin and crispy pizza was delicious, Emiliana - Palma ham and rocket. Courgette fries were fabulous! Only negative... More
