“A hidden gem! Super food and super service!”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

This has got to be one of the most underrated Italian restaurants in the area. Great food - mama's chicken, garlic in a cream tomato sauce with penne was fresh, piping hot and a generous portion. The fresh profiteroles were to die for! With a glass of wine and coffee to follow the bill came to a reasonable £19.60 for two. The service was friendly and efficient and the recent refurbishments just enhance the whole dining experience. We will definitely be back!

I would definitely recommend this restaurant, all the staff were warm and friendly and very efficient. The food was really tasty so hats off to the chef. The prices are great and so is the atmosphere.

“Nice food and good service .... but a bit random!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

This is one of the more random restaurants I've eaten in. From the outside it looks like a traditional pub - the Sun Inn and on if you go in the left door it is a pub. However if you go in the right door its an Italian restaurant, but is still very pubbish complete with real ale hand pumps - I'm not complaining about this as it was nice to have an ale with my meal instead of lager. The pub shares the same toilets as the pub and you can go between the two behind the bar. There was a room at the back with more of a restaurant feel but it was ridiculously hot in there so we ate near the bar. The food was very good and reasonably priced. I had garlic mushroom and beef stroganoff and both were very tasty. The service was very good and friendly.
