Marrocco's is the best place to go to for Fresh gelato/ice cream. Always a queue on hot days, but worth the wait. They also serve great coffee and lunches etc On my last visit I asked for a receipt and the server obviously didn't speak English as she got very confused and had to ask someone else to help me......

Best ice cream in town been coming here for years, can't be beaten!! I have also eaten here and it's always been average so don't expect to much from the restaurant better to order something simple like pizza, staff always excellent

There's usually a queue at Marrocco's for the ice-cream and I can see why, it's really good! The staff serving it though could crack a smile from time to time, they're serving ice-cream to people who are enjoying themselves not working down a mine for goodness sake! A bit of banter or a friendly smile would go a long way!

I haven't had a chance to visit Marrocco's for quite some time so when the opportunity arose to go this evening, I was really looking forward to it. Well, the decor has changed, but so has the menu! Many of my seafood favourites such as Lobster, Scallops and the divine Seafood Platter were gone and in place were a selection... More

Fantastic selection of gelato ice cream, reasonably priced and very popular! £3.50 for a generous two scoop cone - will make sure I go back to try all the other favours

I really should have stuck to the Seafood and Italian menu, but on this occasion decided to try a burger at over £10(nearly the cheapest) without sides, it had to be good. Order was sent out wrong as was my partner's, burgers dry and tasteless, chips & side salad made this an expensive mistake. Not impressed.

I have been to Italy so many times that this place was a little average on the food front. It's reasonably well priced and the service is great. Taste wise, I have had better but it was nice.

My partner and I have been coming here consistently for 2 years, mostly for our morning coffee fix and the fresh croissants and pan au chocolats. Occasionally we pop in for lunches and dinners which are always delicious with a recent discovery being the new menu consisting of homemade burgers. I have to say, the burgers are probably one of...

We've been eating here for years and it never disappoints; pasta, pizza and burgers with the option of fresh seafood if you want to splash out. They've obviously got it right because it's always full, friends and family filling up in tasty Italian food but secretly just waiting until they can order the amazing range of homemade ice cream; all...

Marrocco's does food as well as ice cream, but let's face it, most people will go for the ice cream! It's right next to the beat and always has a queue. But service is quick so you won't wait any longer than you need. They have a great selection of flavours in a cone or cup and the ice cream... More

We'll never be a large restaurant, It's simply too small, our kitchen has always been in the heart of the dining area making our complete operation totally transparent. If you haven't visited us, you'll find that what we offer is real italian food, the food you would expect when you're on holiday in the old country and there's always something for everyone, regardless of their tastes.We still work within traditional methods and believe strongly in having the kitchen as the heart of our restaurant. Marroccos' offers a traditional family atmosphere with food that we are proud to plan, create and serve. But we have high standards. We believe in value for money without sacrificing quality or freshness and operate a strict quality control system including ordering our food daily to ensure freshness and minimise waste. Of course we don't get it right 100% of the time, but we have policies and procedures in place to deal with any matter that you're not happy with. All we ask is that you tell us so we can correct any matter that you're not happy with if it arises. I'm very proud of all my team that have helped create and mould Marroccos' into what it is today and we look forward to the years to come. Pietro Marrocco and the team at Marroccos
