We visited on New Years Eve. No hike in prices, just great food, helpful and friendly staff and a warm atmosphere. Obviously very popular with locals but we were made to feel as welcome as everyone else. Reminded me of a little family run restaurant we once visited in Rome - recommend.

This is the perfect family restaurant. We have just had a great New Years meal, attentive service, wonderful food, the best value wine, you've got to try the Montepulciano!
The relaxed atmosphere makes for a pleasant evening.
The best venue in Ripon!

We had a great meal here but so terribly spoilt by the very loud and noisy restaurant - there was only one other table near us, admittedly with an obnoxious child - but the acoustics are so dreadful that we couldn't hear each other speak! Don't think about a romantic dinner here....

Staff good..starter was garlic mushrooms..swimming in not oarticularly well flavoured butter and red hot (I guess straight from the microwave) which had killed the taste still further..main coourse wasa vegetable pasta..luckily there was a a lot of Parmesan, so some taste was evident.

Dear Sir/Madam

Thank you for your review, however in regards to the comments on the food, obviously everyone has their own preferences and taste.
The garlic mushrooms are in no way shape or form put anywhere near a microwave, they are cooked to order and the sauce is made separate to avoid them being soggy and over boiled, and the dish is hot because we have a plate warmer as people would complain if the plates are stone cold.

The veg pasta, is a veg pasta. As stated on the early birds which you are referring to which is a 9.99 menu, it does state the past does not come in a sauce is just with olive oil and veg, it may sound cliche but honestly we have had that menu for a long time now, and nobody has ever complained about that pasta as it is clearly described, the menu cannot be beaten for value for money, so maybe you should have chosen something different if you did not like the sound of it.

We sell garlic mushroom constantly in our establishment and in fact they are the best seller on that menu and no one has ever complained about them.

Maybe like i said its down to personal taste, thank you for being positive in regards to the staff as we do pride in great service, and always strive to be as friendly and efficient as we possibly can.
I can assure you all our food is home made and there is definitely no microwave involved in it.

I hope you will try us again and maybe choose something different, as we have so many great dishes to choose from, i'm sure next time you will not be disappointed.

Kind Regards

Marco
