This is a restaurant we have visited many times as a family, initially because it had a cheap ‘early bird’ menu when dining between 5.30 and 7pm.
Prices gradually crept up, which meant it was less affordable for regular meals out, but they have recently introduced a "sottocinque" menu where pasta and pizza is just under £5 if dining during the week.

If you are thinking of eating there, you should expect:
• good, tasty albeit not exceptional food
• an informal and relaxing atmosphere
• prompt, pleasant though not very effusive service
• reasonable prices for both food and drink

I think they have got a good balance here, particularly suited to families.

The food in Margerita is nice but I would agree with a lot of the reviewers that the service wasnt exactly personal. It felt a little rushed.

The restaurant looks small from the outside but is actually quite big.

Like other reviewers we agree that from the outside this looks a small dingy establishment.. On entering you find a warm cosy environment that is much larger than you would imagine. It is traditionally Italian, ie the menu and decor,,but NOT unfortunately the service. Food and wine however is reasonably priced. and of good standard. What stops us giving 5 stars is the lack of personal service,from arrival to departure. This however should not deter the reader from visiting. We will probably go again to Margherita's for the good Italian food, pastas etc. It would be nice to see a more relaxed and friendly service. This would enable us to give a 5 star review next time.

Last minute booking for a family of six adults. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The food was plentiful hot and very tasty. There was a good choice of wine. The main courses at £4.95 were great value and the coffee was lovely.

We suddenly decided to go for a meal with our daughters and son in law. Margherita looked as a special place for us so we gave it a try and were not disappointed . The mushrooms in gorgonzola sauce were to die for. Great meal! Definitely would recommend this place.
