“Well priced and tasty”
Reviewed October 17, 2010

Peppy's is as good as it is idiosyncratic - very. In the first instance, it's unusually located. Most suburban eateries are planted at intersections or on local shopping streets, but Peppy's is buried deep among the quiet residential streets of Heaton. That said, the no.1 bus runs very close by, and Chillingham Road Metro is only some ten minutes walk away. Being outside the city centre and off all the main routes, you'd expect it to be unknown and deserted, but Peppy's is always busy. This is always a good cue to head in and give it a try, at which point you'll meet with another idiosyncrasy - the decor.

The pizza and pasta that I've tried here are very good: robustly flavoured and absolutely fresh. The pizza is especially good. The portions are generous, and it seems that in some cases the starters are almost as big as the mains, so on the whole you get good value as well. The drinks, alas, do not represent quite such good value, though I can only comment on the beers and minerals - we haven't tried the wines. But this is always the way with eating-out, in my experience.

Service was attentive (but not intrusive) and fast, and the barmy decor, together with the popularity of the place, gives Peppy's a really nice atmosphere, albeit one we found a little too warm after a while. Overall, it's a great little place that definitely merits a £1.90 Metro fare to experience, providing you're not looking to eat too late, as closing seems to be around 22.00 most evenings.

“Great Family Restaurant”
Reviewed October 13, 2010

We've eaten in Peppy's many time and have yet to experience a poor quality meal. Our two grandson love being taken there, I have frequently entertained colleagues for all over the UK at this restaurant and they've loved it. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff - provided of course you ask! Good quality wholesome cooking at reasonable prices. Value for money - what more could anyone ask for?

“Bland food”
Reviewed January 26, 2010

Having walked past the restaurant on a number of occasions whilst walking home, i thought i'd give their food a try. Unfortunately, the dishes that were served left a lot to be desired. i ordered a pasta dish with anchovies and olives which surprisingly was very bland. My mum ordered a simple spaghetti bolognese which was severely over cooked. The restaurant had a pleasant atmosphere but due to the poor quality of the food, i will not be returning.
