After a 7hr journey up from Devon we checked in to the adjoining Travelodge then came in for a well needed drink. As soon as we entered a member of staff said good evening how are you, which was a lovely welcome. Once seated a couple of us went to the bar to be greeted once again by a couple... More

3rd December, and they were getting ready for a big party in the evening, however we had booked and were seated at a pleasant table away from all the prep for the evening. Drinks served quite quickly, and order taken. However, we seemed to wait quite a long time for our food. The sea bass was excellent, the mediterranean vegetable... More

We had Christmas Lunch with the MR2 Drivers' Club yesterday and although we had to order in advance, I telephoned prior to the visit and spoke to the chef, who designed a meal around my intolerance requirements i.e., no gluten and diary. He even phoned me back when he realised that the soup would contain butter and changed my starter... More

Heard loads of really positive things about this place but left feeling a little disappointed. We selected from the festive menu. The pizza and pasta main course were very good although the pasta was much creamer than anticipated we did still enjoy it. What disappointed us was the service. Once the restaurant got busy we found it difficult to gain... More

This was my first experience at Dante's, a restaurant I had wanted to visit for a while. My experience was on the whole very favourable, the noise level can be loud, due to the restaurant being packed, but it did not detract from the experience. The food was excellent as was the service, there was nothing I could fault. If... More

Came last week for dinner the best way to describe the experience was bland. The food left a lot to be desired. The food is overpriced and over rated however the staff in particular the Italian guy were lovely.
