Came here with my family for my birthday and so glad I picked this place. The staff are so friendly - they even let us order outside of the set Valentine's Day menu as that was quite restricting. However, some did order from set menu some didn't and all of our food was delicious and top quality! Only downfall was... More

Food is yummy, and staff are really attentive. Good value. Ask for a window seat. If you enjoy Italian food this is the place to go. Specials are on offer as well.

There was a friendly and lively atmosphere on a busy on a Thursday night at Matteos. Our host was very attentive, even offered to transfer us to a window seat when a table became available. Food was great, includng a very generous portion of Scallops as a starter. The service was well paced - not too rushed as can be... More

We visited for Sunday Lunch today. It was the first time since under new ownership that we visited and the first day for the Sunday lunches. There is the one two and three course meal option so we chose a sunday lunch (all got the beef) and a dessert. The beef and gravy were delicious and everything else was good.... More

Absolutely amazing for any occasion, date nights or family visits! The food has always been great, a change to the menu and the food is still incredible. Would recommend this place to anyone. Staff are amazing, atmosphere is great and the prices are awesome.

We went for dinner and had a very enjoyable meal. The food was well cooked and presented and it was very tasty. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Do make sure you have some chips though. They are fantastic! Good value for money as well.

Sorry the chips aren't great they are fantastic. I know it's just a chip but they are blooming lovely. Oh the steaks, chicken & pasta dishes are great too. Opens early for tea time. A welcoming atmosphere and very polite team.

Lovely little restaurant, staff very friendly, food reasonable price, wine nice but a little expensive it was £16 for a bottle of Blossom Hill rose'. Would recommend the tea time special. £6 95 for a 3 course.
