I ate here as part of a large group in November, I was a last minute addition and the staff accommodated me no problem. The food was absolutely fab, I had a mozzarella salad and the lasagne. The staff were great when it came to a complicated division of the bill. Would happily return for a meal. Strongly recommend.

Despite being long time Tamworth residents(my wife a native), this was our first visit and I am disappointed this gem of a restaurant has been missed. It has a nice atmosphere that belies its initial appearance with food to die for , We arrived around 545pm on an exceptionally busy Saturday evening(Tamworth Fireworks Event) without a reservation. This wasn't a... More

Pleasant meal, friendly staff, only downfall was the cheddar cheese on the pizza, it over powered everything else and made the pizza wetter

This was my 3rd visit and have to say the food is wonderful. The front of house staff are nice and friendly even if my cheeky banter may cause a bit of a language barrier with me being from down south. Mike the owner always says hello. Real friendly atmosphere. Food is always served piping hot and fresh. Lasagne to... More

I've been going to this restaurant for many years and have never had a bad meal. We've had large family parties here, meals with children and meals for two, it can cater for any type of group. The food is always very tasty, especially the mars bar cheese cake. The food is slightly pricy but is definitely worth it, especially... More
