Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visited for Sunday roast, food was lovely, really fancied a desert but for almost £8 a desert decided against it! Off to Asda to buy a huge cheesecake for a £5 🤣🤣

Omg what a surprise, a little italian gem hidden away. Ive lived in the area all my life and have just discovered this little gem of a restaurant. Service was excellent, didnt have long to wait for the food which came out piping hot. Garlic...bread with cheese is the best ive had in a long time as was the pizza. Nice thin crust, crusty around the edges and perfectly cooked on the bottom. The Alfredo with tagliatelle was perfectly cooked, full of flavour and just the right amount of chicken. Parmesan was grated at the table which was perfect as i knew it was fresh. Altogether i cannot fault this restaurant. I will certainly be taking my 16yr old son & 8 yr old granddaughter again as they loved it.More

I visited last night with my family and it was our first visit! firstly the food was absolutely delicious. Everyone of us loved what we had.. we literally could not fault the food at all. Id also like to say a huge thank you to...your amazing staff, they were fabulous with my children but also their customer service was exceptional. With myself requiring a gluten free diet and my daughter having a nut allergy you could not have been more supportive to us. The food was extremely enjoyable but also safe for us to eat. genuinely thank you for an amazing nightMore

What a find this was. We came to the local area for a couple of nights and after a bit of tripadvising we decided on this Italian. We never booked as it was a last minute decision but it was not a problem. We were...greeted by a very friendly waitress and were shown to a table straight away. The waitresses and the gentlemen (believe he was the manager/owner) who served us were very efficient and extremely friendly. Food was fantastic, really tasty and great portion sizes. It was nice to come somewhere where we felt we were getting our moneys worth! Strongly recommend the pizzas and the garlic bread! If we come back to the area we will mostly likely be returning. Thank you!More

FIVE STAR Here has made me so happy, biggest hidden gem of the north east. Wherever you are I highly recommend you visit as is 100% worth the drive (also on a bus route) The staff are just amazing, I’d come every day if I...could, it was like popping into see your family. They were all very kind and friendly. It’s a perfect restaurants for couples having a romantic night but also family friendly. Food was excellent too. I can’t wait to come back. Thank youMore
