I have quite possibly attempted to eat the worst meal I have ever had the displeasure of being served this evening. Reheated qubed deep fried potatoes, Luke warm vegetables, dry slices of pork, all served on a cold plate A very bad night

Just like previous reviewers, we were a little put off by the dated decor but we were so glad we ate here. This family run business (husband is chef and wife is front of house) is fantastic. Staff were friendly and welcoming but not pushy and made us feel like nothing was too much trouble. The chicken and mushroom stroganoffs... More

This was our surprise of the week...we hesitated going in after looking through the windows but glad we did. We really did have some of the best pasta we've recently eaten and thoroughly enjoyed dinner here. If only they'd replace the pink tablecloths with white ones and switch off those bright wall & ceiling lights (they have candles on all... More

Upon entering it felt a bit like sitting in your Granny's dining room with very dated decor but the food was amazing. Quick service & genuinely one of the best spaghetti carbonaras I've had. Their seafood dishes were lovely too. Had a panettone bread & butter pudding which was divine & the price was very reasonable. Staff were friendly &... More

Having visited Chipping Campden for a weekend in September we wandered up and down the high street wondering where to eat. We stumbled upon this Italian restaurant and booked in for the evening. Having read some of the reviews - I can understand why people say it is like going back in time to the 1970s. The décor and surroundings... More

I have popped in here a few times over the years. I suppose eating out depends on what you are after. All show n no go or a cooking perfection. I prefer the latter, yes the decor is a bit older, maybe quaint, but the food and service are exquisite. I had Hake and I have to say I would... More

I cannot believe the negative reviews for this gem of a restaurant. If it is 'old fashined' in its decor it is in the most charming way so that when you walk through the door, you could be walking in to what I imagine a restaurant in a little village in Italy would be like, not a converted pub in...

I should have known there was an issue as we were able to get in here on a Saturday night with ease where all else was booked, the decor is plastered art all round the tables and settings are very poor it really was a trip back in time, the menu reflected the surroundings with dishes that you don't really...

We had a nice dinner here one night of our stay. I had lasagna and my husband had tortellini. They were both very good.

A popular little place, good for a quick couple of courses. Nice menu, mostly Italian fare but English dishes too. Service very good as was the quality of the food. Not cheap eats, but would eat there again.
