Love the fact we have something a little bit different in Yeovil now in the form of a BYO restaurant.
We came here for my birthday and as a lively bunch of 16 we were welcomed and served promptly and in a friendly manner.
The food is basic, with a short concise menu, but should please everyone, and is very fairly priced. I had lasagne which was scrumptious (an awful lot of cheese on top though!), and most of our party had the pizzas, all super thin bases, my favourite.
To start we had the baked Camembert which we were advised was a sharer for two, and it was delicious and HUGE! Will know next time that it could go three or even four ways if you want to squeeze a dessert in.
We didn't get to sample desserts as a surprise birthday cake was brought. Felt a bit guilty as that meant the whole party sat an ate cake instead of pud, but it was handled very well by the staff.
We plan to go again, but not such a large group. The place dies get very loud, but this is probably down to everyone getting merry for cheap on their own booze.
The only slight gripes were that I looked on tripadvisor, PICO's website (not really a website!) and on their Facebook page before calling to book the table. None of these mentioned the corkage price, not even the friendly informative guy on the phone. As it is £2.50 per head worked out ok, but was a bit disappointed as didn't know to expect it until we were seated and given our menus.
The only thing is that we were told our drinks could be chilled while we ate, I assume this is what the array of ice buckets open the way to the loo were for, but we weren't offered a single one.
Oh and the loo... Just one toilet, unisex, on a busy Saturday night = queues!!
On the whole, a great experience though, and fab value.
