Myself and my family have been coming to this wonderful restaurant from Day 1! As soon as you walk into the restaurant, there is always a warm and friendly atmosphere. You are greeted by the extremely kind staff. As per usual, the food is of...a very high quality and super tasty! Today we came for a lovely Mother’s Day meal! To top of their already 5* service, the owner gifted myself and my mum a beautiful rose each (and other guests too). Such a sweet thing to do!! Can’t recommend Melo enough! If you haven’t been before, you must go!!!More

We usually go to Melo at least once a week and each time on our visit we’ve been served an excellent food and beautiful, friendly service. I have introduced my friends to Melo too, and they love it just as much as we do!

if you want to hear ' you lots finished init' go there, mains came before we had finished starters, starters came before we had finished pre dinner drinks, not exactly busy so no idea why the rush. Food is a good portion but don't have...the chips they are oven chips and not cooked well. oh and don't take any special cake as they wont let you eat it there even if a special occasion. Miserable staff.More

This was a birthday celebration and we were treating all guests. Great Food, great service then when it came to pay at just before 10pm closing time I was told - Cash Only!!! for a for booking of 9 people sat at 2 tables socially...distanced. It was lucky that I had my bank card with me and the ATM across the road was fully working, otherwise it would have been a major embarrassment. : Feedback: You need to give people payment options, in this day and age, with credit card payment being the preferred option for most people. If however, you are to continue as a cash only restaurant - you must ensure that customers are made aware at the time of their booking or at least when they sit down in the restaurant.More

Food was off and smelt of bad old eggs. Really smelly place , bad food and very bad service. Rude waiters. Very bad area too. No parking so i had to go far. and struggled going back to the car at night. Really bad experience.
