Went for valentines meal and while we received excellent service the food was such a let down. Had to send my main back as it was luke warm & my husbands steak although cooked as requested was wafer thin. We eat out at Italian Restaurants often but this is one that we won't be returning to.

We paid £100 for 2. Plus we paid an additional £!8 for a bottle of wine on arrival It was Christmas day so we didn't mind that price tag and we were prepared to spend much more on wines and beers to ensure a great day. We arrived in good spirits and looking forward to our meal. The starters where... More

Thank you for your comments, I am sorry for the disappointment with your meal. On Christmas day we provided a four course meal for £50 which is good value for money on this special day. Our fillet steak is 8oz and the picture that you attached shows that it is clearly not a minute steak. We would gladly provided any... More

Had a really good meal here with my family from 15 years of age to forever. We all enjoyed it. The service was excellent and my Pasta was superb. My daughter said it was the best pasta she had ever had. I was reluctant to go because the last time I went (under different management) it was only ok. Won't... More

Visited the restaurant last week with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Thoroughly enjoyed our starters and main meal although we were too full to manage a pudding as well. Good waiter service and I must say thank you to the staff as I lost my necklace (dodgy catch), but realized as soon as we got home. My husband... More
