We rang early in the week to book a table I should have known by the awful attitude that we were in for a night to remember !!!!! We walked into a cafe (which is run like that through the day) to be greeted by a very timid young lady who seemed to be scared to death by the owners - if I could have walked then we would. We then were told they had no wine that we wanted so had to go for the next best. My starter was mushrooms floating in tomatoes ( tinned) awful !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my husband had the blackpudding starter which wa Ok the main was a bog standard pasta dish which again was Ok. People .were being turned away or ignored which I thought was a disgrace. Come on Cumbria/ lancs we have to get tourists on board don't ignore

Disappointing that only 3 types of pasta are on offer. I would have expected a better selection. Although the pasta is Ok, having eaten in Italy many times, it fails to match the pasta quality of the nation. The meat dishes are quite expensive and the variey on the wine list is only at the expensive end. The management and staff are extremely pleasant but will need to attend to the menu and wine list, and undertake some serious promotions if they are to survive at this new location.

Really cannot believe that someone has written a bad review.From the minute we entered the restaurant we were greeted by enthusiastic, well presentable staff who were promt at serving us drinks and making sure we we had a pleasant evening! The restaurant althought very busy had a lovely relaxed atmosphere and the wait between courses gave us a chance to chat and have a drink without feeling rushed - i would rather wait longer and recieve this standard of food over fast food service anyday!!! Thanks for a thouroughly enjoyable night girls your service was excellent already planning a return visit...

We turned up for a meal without booking and were delighted by the friendly owners and their staff. The restaurant has an excellent reputation and although this was our first visit, we shall certainly be returning and bringing other friends and family with us. Our thanks to all making our visit such an enjoyable occasion.
