I've been here a number of times now with my boyfriend and with his parents. Every time we have been very happy with everything. The food is incredibly good value for how fresh and wonderfully tasty it is. The environment is lovely and the staff are always great as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We've been regulars to Zest for over 4 years now and it's always been great great. Event though were are not locals anymore we go to Zest whenever we visit the area. Whether it's breakfast or dinner it's always fantastic value for money. Food is simply amazing for what you pay.

This was my third visit here in recent months. On the previous occasions I have found the restaurant good value. However, last night we made the mistake of ordering from the Christmas menu, I ordered two courses for £17.95, not realising I could have ordered the same meals from their standard menu at the price of £12. I'm unsure how... More

What can I say......absolutely fantastic. Cosy bar with seating up to approx 40 people...... The menu and specials board are very good. The food is beautiful and at a very competitive price. Really good place for a solo outing or a small group. Would highly recommend.

I love the food at Zest. There is always great choice for vegetarians. They do two great value courses for just over £12. I had a huge veg Meze platter for starter and lovely veg moussaka with nice fresh salad. Could have had a beautiful Creme Brulee for pudding but was rushing. My son had a fantastic veg tagine. This... More

The food is really good and its a bargain too, they do 2 courses for £12 or 3 courses for £16. Because this is so cheap we expected the meals o be small... More

We recently dinned at zest and were impressed at the value and standard of food. We were made to feel welcome the children were engaged well. Well worth a look and get a taste of a authentic tagline. Many thanks

Just had a lovely evening meal here with my wife. Very good selection of dishes on the menu with a range of vegetarian and gluten free dishes clearly marked up if that's important for you. The food was good value and the service was excellent throughout. It was a bright sunny evening and the restaurant was lovely and light inside... More
