We decided to hold an office party here for 20 people and we couldn't have been more welcome or better cared for. Obviously you expect to pre-order in such numbers but some wanted to change their choices on the night and this wasn't an issue and was dealt with cheerfully.

The food is beautifully prepared, cookedWonderful and presented. The restaurant has an authentic atmosphere and is very quirky with its different levels. It was a very cold evening so the roaring log fire was a huge plus. The waitress who took our order was so smiley and friendly, we commented on it.

Visited here with friends from work and was impressed. The food and service was excellent. We all had steaks that were cooked to perfection. A real nice touch was the owner/chef coming out to speak to customers. Well worth a visit.

There were 13 of us and Caroline was extremely helpful at all stages of booking and ordering. Our exact requirements were delivered - even to the usual quirky request.

First visit on 11/11/16 with friends, on entering the restaurant my first thought was "oh not quite what I expected" due to it feeling and looking like an old pub with a small waiting area. What was to come soon changed my mind, when making your way to the restaurant up stairs, there is further seating in a pleasant and... More

Armando's is an excellent restaurant. The menu is not very big but this is a good thing, and everything that they have on the menu is cooked superbly. The ambiance of the restaurant is suited to couples dining and friends dining and they are also happy to cater for family dining. The restaurant is split into connected sections which also... More
