    It was a birthday treat for me . Lovely welcome from the young man at the bar , I ordered a Mojito and hubby a pint of lager shandy . Mojito was spot on . Taken to our table and we ordered fillet steaks , medium . I had the stilton sauce hubby the peppercorn . Everything was presented well and was really good . We did not need the steak knives to cut the steak . The only thing I would have preferred was that the sauces needed to be reduced down a little as they were a little runny , but tasted good . Service was very good , waitresses all attentive and aware of when you were finished eating etc . You can tell that the staff have been properly trained . Nice surroundings . Would we go back ........yes ! And we will also recommend to our guests who stay at our cottages .

    Amazing food, lovely location and the outdoor seating area was beautiful on the warm, sunny evening! With heaters and awnings though it would be a wonderful space even if the weather hadn’t been so good. Thoroughly recommend.

    Great meal during Happy hour. Spicy meatballs as a starter were lush, then choice of pizza or pasta. Such a nice evening we sat outside in the sunshine. Bit slow on service booked for 5.45 and had to hurry them for coffee and the bill just after 7.00 as we were booked in to the Queen's Hall for 7.30. Would definitely go again though.

    Good food. Would like a menu that isn’t grey with red print. Really hard to see in a dim restaurant. Would like a big less grey overall. I know grey is in fashion atm but even the salt and pepper pots are grey! Colour would be nice!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Vercelli. The staff were just lovely and made the children very welcome. Our drinks order was taken promptly followed by our food order. The food was absolutely delicious! We were especially impressed with the 3 course meal for age 12 and under. £7.50 including a drink of juice. The portion sizes were generous too. One of the kids said the tomato sauce on the spag bol was a bit “spicy” but it didn’t stop her tucking into it and the others having a taste! Fantastic dining experience, we will be back.

    We booked an outdoor booth as we have children who like to get up and about. We had the whole outdoor area to ourselves. The seating area was comfortable and provided enough space for the 9 of us. The service was excellent, fast, friendly and efficient. The food was reasonably priced and enjoyed by all.

    The initial impression is a cosy place but the lighting is v low and the font on the menu made it quite difficult to read. Grey on grey in low light. The service was pretty good. The mocktails were fun but v sweet. The children chose carbonara as their go to dish but struggled to eat it as v rich. My risotto was nice as was the pizza we had. It was a reasonable meal but slightly disappointed with the pasta dish.
