Everything was exceptional, the chocolate fondant was especially beautiful. Lovely pub will return soon.
So many reviews use all the superlatives about restaurants so its sometimes difficult to identify the best. I am an older man and have spent most of my life eating in nice restaurants around the world but i no longer have to travel great distances to experience the best dining, i consider myself very fortunate to have this great restaurant almost on my doorstep, i have been in the kitchen and its exactly as they say everything cooked from scratch, pasta and breads made fresh every day and the best quality fish i have tasted since eating on the beach in Sicily. They do get very Busy and i am not one bit surprised.
To our joy we booked a table last Thursday 3rd Sept as they announced a Cabaret evening with a well known singer performing ''The Great American Songbook'' it turned out to be one of the best nights i have experienced in a long time, The owner Roberto, a big fan of that genre took over the microphone at one time and a star was born.
A Fabulous evening, thank you Roberto and Luana, lets hope you do it again.
I'm Italian and I have found the flavour of my country! Thank you
Lovely service - Roberto wouldn't stop feeding me - I will come again!! x
Aimee Lawrence Wilson.
