The kitchen and foyer are downstairs and the restaurant is upstairs. We are a bistro style establishment, we serve pizza, pasta, steak, fish, chicken and salads. Our emphasis is on fresh, local and organic where possible. We have been in the same building for 30 years and are family run.

“Magnifico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

An excellent, friendly Italian restaurant. My wife and I ate here last night and were very impressed with the food. The chicken I had was one of the best I have had in years and my wife's goats cheese tart was delicious. The service was very good and very friendly, including the chef,who we met on the way out. It was nice to be able to compliment her directly.

Thank you so much, we really try to keep our prices reasonable and pay great attention to the quality of food and service. We are incredibly lucky to have great staff. Week nights have really taken off since we intoduced the early bird, We do try to accomodate walk ins as much as possible, but of course it's better if you make a reservation. Mary

“I was served pesto that was almost inedible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

I made the fatal error of ordering pesto in both my starter and main course. My pesto pizza was perhaps the worst pizza I have ever eaten. The Yellow Pepper is located just a short distance from this restaurant down the main street. The difference in price between the two restaurants is not much, but the gulf in quality is enormous.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, I am very sorry that you didn't like our pesto, we make it fresh in house twice weekly, we use it for both our restaurants. Had you informed us of your grievance at the time we would have done everything in our power to rectify the situation. Mary.

Dear Joasia, thanks very much for taking the time to write your review. We are very lucky to be busy and to have brilliant staff. I am very sorry that you found the food to be average, that is certainly not our aim, hopefully you will give us a try again. Mary
