We visited here whilst staying at the local Haven site. We got a booking no problem. The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere, the waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. We had starters, mains and desserts with drinks and coffees and worked out around £30pp. The food was absolutely delicious, freshly cooked and beautifully presented. Would 100% recommend this place for a nice meal, if you want more than a local pub meal.

Visited on 21st May 2021, there is a nice atmosphere on arrival, the tables are spaced out well. The staff were welcoming and the food and service were very good. We were advised that there was another booking after ourselves but we didn’t feel rushed. We certainly didn’t get the poor service and staff that some reviewers had. We would certainly come again

Visited this Italian recently after its refurbishment, sadly it has gone down hill. The meatball pasta dish had roughly one meatball, this was broken into about six small bits scattered through the poorly cooked past. The sauce was hard to find as there was so little of it.
The very young waiting staff spent more time chatting to each other by the bar than serving the customers.
Shame as it used to be much better.

We had a family meal out (first one since March) and there was a hair under the calzone. We informed the waitress who took the plate away, then brought back the plate saying she has removed the hair and it was a blonde hair and the chef has dark hair so it wasn't one if his! (None of us are blonde either!) They expected my husband to carry on eating the calzone! The staff did not care and were miffed we asked for another one to be made rather than eat the one that had a hair in it! It took quite a while for the replacement calzone to be made so we had to take it away but it smelt funny and we didn't trust the hygiene of the kitchen so we threw it away so it was a waste of food and money.
We were very disappointed with the whole experience and will not recommend this restaurant in the future
