A young chef with modern ideas and a brother and sister who run the place. Very personally run place, you are greeted by the owner and the sister is in the kitchen together with the chef. They do a splendid job. Chapeau!

Had dinner with friends in Apparo recently and it was a lovely, pleasant surprise. Starters of prawns, bruschetta, a hearty soup of the day were all really good but the crayfish tails was the star dish. Meaty, perfectly cooked and on a bed of linguine with the most divine chilli cream sauce. My only recommendation for improvement was to make it a main course sized portion!

Main courses - a couple of steaks (one medium rare, one blue and both cooked as ordered), a lovely crispy beer battered cod and a divine chicken parmigiana. I'm not a fan of the jenga-stacked chunky fries but that's just me. My companions said they were lovely - perfectly cooked crisp on the outside and fluffy inside.

Only one dessert - an orange infused rice pudding which I'm told was delightful. I managed to snag the accompanying home-baked shortbread cookie which was not too sweet, had a nice "snap" when I broke it and was just lovely with a perfect Americano. We also had an espresso and an Irish coffee and conclude the Barrista knows their stuff.

House red is a lovely bouncy Navarra which was a snip at £14.95. We didn't even bother going any further donwn the wine list when we saw this one. We also had four beers on the bill.

In total we paid £110 including a 10% tip for dinner for four, which was excellent value and definintely worth returning for - if only in hope of main course sized crayfish tails!

Ask for a table at the back by the garden/patio doors as ones up front can get quite warm (they're closer to the kitchen).
