Excellent food as ever at Freddie's, served piping hot.
However, the main courses were rather salty and our meal was somewhat interrupted by the over-eager waiter, returning every few minutes in an attempt to top up our wine glasses, in spite of being told we weren't ready for any more just yet!

I have been to Freddie's several times now and on every occasion the food and the service have been wonderful. Whenever family members come down from Scotland to visit us, we always choose Freddie's to take them to because we know it is going to be excellent. Now, when they come back down again for a visit, they ask "When are we going to Freddie's?!".

Freddie himself is always so welcoming and delighted to have you in his restaurant.

I recommend you give this place a try - you won't be disappointed!

Freddie's provided a perfect setting for a recent romantic meal. The ambience was good and the food and wine were excellent. Service was very efficient and every effort was made to make us feel welcome and to ensure that everything was as it should be with our meals.

My wife and I dined here mid-week and as a result, we pretty much had the place to ourselves. We had seen the place jam-packed of a weekend evening so were keen to try the place. We only had a mina each and then split a pudding. The menu was a good mix of european fare and the wine list was good and also reasonably priced. The staff were very attentive, but it would have been tricky not to have been given the low number of covers in that evening. I had the duck, which was cooked perfectly, but it was served with potato dauphinoise which had only been partially reheated and were a little on the dry side. A shame given that the trickier aspect of the meal (i.e. cooking the duck) had been executed so well. Pudding was a lovely berry cheesecake. 3/5 may seem harsh, but the décor was certainly a little tired and given how busy they weren't, I would have hoped for a high level of attention to detail for the dishes that came out of the kitchen. Would definitely go back though and give them another crack as the staff were all so lovely and overall we left contented.

Had an excellent midweek meal here. An independent family business making a nice change. Pleasant traditional Mediterranean setting with friendly and attentive staff. Perfect range of food and drink all at a reasonable price.
