Four of us went for dinner this evening on the recommendation of my sister-in-law. The food was good quality and represented good value. The staff were friendly and attentive. We liked the place as the atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed. There was also lots of interesting rugby and other sports memorabilia adorning the walls. We would definitely recommend Cesco's and...

The food is really good and the service is great. Excellent service but the trading hours are odd. Google it and phone before arriving to make sure they are open.

Now this is good. I popped in on Sunday just before they opened, but they welcomed my wife and I and continued with their staff meeting. And then the feast started. The food was so good we stayed the whole afternoon. Everything we had, from starters to main to desert was delicious. We tried everything. Even a mezze type platter.... More

One of the better places for a pub lunch. Good old style pub attached to the restaurant with many drinks choices. Restaurant good for Espetata and other Portuguese type food. Too loud for me and service a bit slow, but still somewhere to try. Worth it

Good honest, value for money food in a family run pub / restaurant. Before moving areas, Cesco's was our 'default' Fiday evening venue.
