The restaurant is quiet with plenty of room, there is a good family and local feel to the place. The Sunday roast is excellent value for money with two course under ten pounds and the food from the main menu has some of the best dishes in the local area. My only negative comment is the lack of a children's... More

Great ambience and very welcoming friendly staff. The menu is not all your usual Italian fare, which is refreshing to see dishes which tempt you to try something different. A tough choice between main menu and 'specials' board. Generous portions, extremely tasty mains with a mix of fresh vegetables. Definitely recommend and can't wait to come back and try some... More

Enjoyed a most excellent meal. The service was very good and the staff helpful and pleasant. The food was superb and the variety offered was very good. Portion sizes were ample for my needs. I could thoroughly recommend eating at the Plum Pudding. The decor is Italian bright and airy.

Had tickets booked for the Rose Theatre and wanted dinner before hand - was recommended here by a friend who had visited. We were immediatley welcomed by the team on arrival and shown to our table.

This place never disappoints. Lovely service Friday m Jade, lots of banter from Giuseppe and most importantly my steak tournedos Rossini cooked to perfection. Finished off with the best tiramisu anywhere in the world! No greater compliment than 5*

Very friendly welcome, lovely surroundings on the canal and really good authentic Italian food. The canneloni and lasagne were lovely and the puddings looked great, too, just didn't have room for them!

My wife and I moored our canal narrowboat at the Plum Pudding and met another couple (who came by car!) for a meal there. Sitting down for a leisurely drink from the selection of good Italian wines and all kinds of beer (including Bass on draft and a guest bitter at only £2.60 a pint), we were all impressed by... More
