Well, my wife and I tried Fiume for Sunday lunch, the experience was very good, the main course was hot, tasty and plentiful. Lovely Yorkshire pud, plenty of vegetables and lashings of gravy.

We both opted for sticky toffee pudding with ice cream but there was only one portion left, so we had that and a warm chocolate fudge cake, both were lovely.

Tables were clean and spaced well apart for social distancing, the room was nice and warm too.

So, all in all, a good experience.👍

The service was really good the girls worked really hard. The food whilst not a disaster, was average. It’s been a number of years since we were last there and we won’t be going back anytime soon. Sorry.

Disappointed with the £25 deal as the pizza garlic bread starter and the two main courses came out together which we were told was normal but we have been going there for years and it's not normal.

Beautiful food, as always. Pollo roma was lovely!
They are still offering the government eat out to help out discount, even though the government no longer refunds them - good for them and thank you! It helps people during difficult times.
Staff are lovely, service is efficient, restaurant clean and adhering to procedures. We eat here at least once a month and have done for over 10 years.

Great food highly recommend the trio of fish and the salmon is amazing they have a smaller menu but everything we have tried is great, my only improvement to suggest is we got seated at around 6pm and I’m not sure what was happening but the lights were dimming and brightening quiet noticeably for some period of time which was odd, otherwise couldn’t fault the food and all staff seemed to be following new social guidance with tables separated, plexiglass screens in place and staff wearing masks
