On arrival waited ten minutes for a menu then long waits between courses. The food when it arrived was very nice. The pudding saved the day for me it was served very quickly and tasted great. The staff were very pleasant and eager to help. Will be back.

The restaurant is now smaller like it used to be nice cosy friendly atmosphere. The food is always good and the service friendly. The prices are great value and reduced menu if you eat early evening.

Had a lovely evening meal for Valentine's day. It was great the layout of the restaurant was spread out and not the normal crampy way. Food still lovely too.

Haven't been here for years as the place absolutely disgusted me. This was my first visit under the new management and I was very impressed. Fair prices, lovely food and a lot cleaner inside. Very busy and it seems it may be getting back to how it used to be in the day when Pepe had the place. Well done... More

We thought the restaurant was improved as it was not full of noisy kids and the restaursnt ambiance was good. Service was also good and having eaten pizza in Naples and Venice thought the food was excellent.

My food was good for the price and good size portions. Service was ok but could have been more friendly.

My family have visited pepes for many years and after the takeover I was worried it wouldn't be the same, however I have to say it's even better! Staff were lovely, food was gorgeous and we didn't wait long for anything. Friendly atmosphere and great value for money. Will continue to visit hopefully for many years to come 😄

Went for Sunday lunch but once we looked at the menu we all just ended up having something from that instead. Plenty to choose from. Was quite busy but didn't have to wait too long. Food was good and atmosphere was cool. Nice place to go to and staff are nice and friendly too.
