The food at this restaurant is excellent but the wine list is over priced. A brand I can buy in supermarket for £7 was priced at £25. I realise that you pay a premium but I personally believe this is too big a mark up. Use better wines or be more realistic on pricing please

Lovely little place. Decor is quite nice although a bit plain. The food was lovely though and the service was exemplary so cannot fault the important stuff. Pricing was decent for the area. Made for a pleasant birthday meal and would go back.

We discovered Memories restaurant through Trip Advisor and have been going every month for over 2 years. Brett & Naomi have created the most marvellous restaurant, with superb food (including innovative vegetarian options which are world-beaters) and truly personal service. It's only small, so you do need to be on time to allow them to be at their best (there's... More

My partner and I decided on spur of the moment to go out for a meal. We rang around a few of the restaurants we knew - all fully booked. We rang Memories and they had just received a cancellation. What a fabulous evening. It's a small place, family run, great service and the food could not be faulted, it... More
