Pats' food is nice, I had the calzone starter for two as a main and that was lovely. Staff is good, portions sufficient but the place is let down by the overpowering smell of chip fat. I normally love the smells in an Italian restaurant,...More

We are in the Market square, right in the centre of town, half way down the main street. We are a 50 seater restaurant, recently renovated. 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.
