This was second time here, previously been for Sunday lunch. It seems that the idea is to pack as many people in as possible. The young male waiter was fine but the young female has a lot to learn about customer service. When the menu says the cheesecake is served with cream, it is quite reasonable not to understand "...

A friend of mine has been for lunch today and walked in on her own, to meet friends, having recently lost her husband, she was greeted by a disgruntled man who made her feel dreadful, not a warm welcome, table was not ready, she walked outside and waited fir her friends, NOT GOOD ENOUGH.

Visited this restaurant with friends on a Saturday night. Clean an tidy restaurant but was like a throwback to the 70's. We'd been told it was an Italian restaurant but still not sure as there were only 3 Italian dishes on the menu we were given? We ordered two lasagne's, both were tasty but very dry, it was clear they... More

Never be put off by the decor- for truly a trip to Basil's is like a trip back in time. Very 70's but that's part of the charm. Service is exemplary. Staff are always attentive, friendly and helpful. The food is delicious, well cooked and well presented. We have visited at weekends and during the week and it is always... More

We had a traditional Sunday here and it was excellent. The choice was varied and the food was excellent (hot, ample and tasty). The atmosphere in here is very good especially as the Italian owner likes to mix with the customers and have some friendly banter with them.

This was our first experience at Basils, and we were not disappointed. This is a 'no frills' restaurant and a little bit of a trip back in time when eating out. However, I think this only added to the overall experience and ambience! The staff were very polite, and attentive. There is a substantive menu, and a 'specials' menu which... More
