I rarely leave negative reviews but I have to say that this was without any doubt the worst meal I have ever had. Starter - overpriced, extremely bland king prawns - no sign of garlic, no flavour whatsoever. I don't usually order pizza but really fancied one tonight, but this was bitterly disappointing. It was salty, wet and the dough... More

11 of us went for a big birthday meal and the menu was really varied. Loved the non alcoholic cocktails and the panettone bread and butter pudding. Our pasta dishes were well thought through, tasty and filling with delicious flavours. The pizzas looked Devine as well. Well recommended.

My partner and I tried to get into one of the bigger brand steak houses round the corner and they were full, thank god they were. Our barman at the hotel had mentioned this place and wow what a recommendation. From start to finish the food and service was amazing. We shared antipasti to start, my partner had fillet steak...

Marco Polo is an Italian bistro that is celebrating its 42nd year of trading. We are an independent restaurant and locally owed. We offer a wide range of pizza/pasta and consider this to be our bread and butter. However we really come in to our own on the a la carte side of the menu. All our dishes are prepared on site and deliver extremely good value. The restaurant is always busy and has great atmosphere. We can cater for most requests. We take reservations and also hold a number of tables back for walk-in custom. So if you're passing pop in.
