Ten of us from Johnson and Starley went to Sophia's for our Xmas meal. Everything was perfect. All staff were very helpful and friendly and the quality of everyone's food was excellent. It was a great atmosphere and a fantastic night was had by all.

John and his team never fail to deliver and we look forward so much to our visits.We always feel as though we're on holiday as there is a definite cosy, continental atmosphere. Menu is varied...

We visited as a couple on a Saturday night last minute, everybody was very accommodating and welcoming considering they were really busy. The service was great and the waiter was a character, the food was delicious just slightly overpriced as you needed to order you accompaniments separately, otherwise you would have just had one piece of meat on a plate!...

We saw some good reviews for this restaurant and so not knowing anywhere else in the town decided to give it a try and I'm glad we did! We booked a table which I would recommend for a Sat evening, and were seated upstairs which at first glance doesn't seem to have quite as good an atmosphere as downstairs. However... More

I booked Sophia's for my husband's birthday after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, having not visited for a number of years. Such a great choice! From the moment we stepped in we were given a warm welcome and told the table was ours for the evening. It was decorated with streamers and balloons and they made a real fuss of... More
