Very traditional Italian with good menus and wine choice. Food was very good but the service was a bit of a shambles Ha Ha. They had a very large party in so it was busy but in a way it made it more Italian. Would go back as the food so nice.

Although I have visited Shambles before we tend to reserve our visits for special events as it is pricy. Ours was a belated Mother's Day celebration but unfortunately we picked the same evening as a large celebration party. This may explain some of my issues as it was a very large group. I should begin by saying that none of... More

We visited on a Wednesday evening and although it was busy there were tables available. The atmosphere in the restaurant was great and the staff very helpful without being over attentive. The food was most delicious, we had Baked Formaggio and a Salami dish as starters and Seabass and Sirloin steak as mains. We both had the La Bomba as... More

I'm not a great fan of Italians as they always seem to miss the mark, but I am pleased to say that The Shambles exceeded expectations. Every course was delicious and well prepared, the pasta was delicious along with the umptious duck egg for starter. The chicken wings and salt cod where excellent too, and again on point with everyone's... More

Paid my 2nd visit this year as was down for the rugby. Very friendly staff and great food. On this visit I had the dressed crab and the lasagna which I couldn't fault. On the previous visit I had the ox cheek which again was great. Worked out just short of £50 per head which I thought was good value.... More

For sure Shambles isn't the cheapest of places to eat, however you do tend to get what you pay for in life. The seafood linguine, which I am reliable informed is based off a home made stock, is outstanding. I'm sure you could go down the road to Cote and get it for few quid cheaper. Up to you, I... More

Lovely family run restaurant with excellent food and a lovely garden for al fresco dining on warm summer evenings. Quite pricey however which means we can only go there on special occasions. The mains are expensive and you have to pay for sides which all adds up.
