Upstairs seating is great as tables are spaced enough to allow privacy but still lively enough to be entertained. Waiters very helpful and attentive. Food delicious! Would definitely recommend for adults of all ages.

Visited on 31st with three of my friends as hadn't been here for a few years. We were seated upstairs, there must've been a air vent above our table as it was a little chilly but nothing to complain about. The restaurant was very busy and had a lovely ambience to it. Our waiter came and took our drinks order... More

When I came here, I decided to go for the vegan options to see how they were as I knew they had a few of them. I had the garlic bread to start. It was quite dry and hard, although I don't think it was just because it was the vegan option, I think it's their style. The pizza was... More

We always seem to have a nice meal when we visit this restaurant. You can end up waiting a little bit too long for the food to come out but I guess they are normally quite busy so perhaps that's the reason. The food is nice enough and there's plenty of variety and we often share a pasta and pizza... More

Great building with lots of ambiance. Food and service good, although our make server could have been more knowledgable about the range of specialist beers on offer. Probably one of the better chains. Tip: upstairs is quieter than downstairs

Really conveniently placed in town, decent prices, decent food, decent server and management. Always good if you have a voucher as well, just a bonus. Range of foods to eat here, enough to please everyone. Nice in summer when you can sit outside.

Visited today. What a pleasent surprise to have a wonderful meal. We both had a pasta dish. They came hot. It was very tasty. The sweets were really good. As you might guess it was my type of Italian food.

Came here on a Saturday early evening, great service, food was served promptly, service was polite, friendly and helpful and made us feel like our custom mattered. Food was excellent, well cooked, served quickly, warm and very tasty. Menu is fabulous, lots of choice whether you want a pizza, or a pasta type dish. Toilets were good, spacious, clean and... More

I was invited out for a meal with friends and they wanted to meet here. Seated quickly and it was fairly quiet when we arrived; in a very short time, it was heaving in there. I noticed some of the tables were a little close for comfort and had the hint of aeroplane seat knocking going on (back to back!).... More
