About Chubby Cherub

If you have ever been to the cafes and restaurants of italy you will observe the small, compact and quaint nature of autentic italian café culture.

The chubby cherub is designed with this premise in mind.

We are a small intimate venue and therefore space is at a premium. Elbow room in some cases is not aforded for large groups however, we feel this makes the chubby cherub experience much better

Terrible service, food was ok. There doesn't seem to be any structure for service, we were asked by 3 different staff members for our drinks order then when the food came, my boyfriends order was sat in front of him and then a staff member said it was for the table beside us so it was sat in front of the lady beside me, they tried to give my pizza to the guy at the other table who said it wasn't his, they went back to the kitchen with the pizza, leaving my boyfriends order in front of the lady and then came back and lifted if from the other table and gave it to my boyfriend and gave me my pizza and said it was our order.

Felt rushed Had to ask for my deposit to be taken off the bill as this didn’t happen automatically - which made me feel like it’s a trick to catch people out and hope they don’t ask for it to be deducted!!! Asked three times for water for the table only to receive it when paying our bill. Asked servers questions to which they said they’d come back to us with the answer and they never returned. Not happy with my experience

The atmosphere overall was really nice, the restaurant is beautifully presented and the staff were friendly. However space is definitely at a premium if you aren't lucky enough to get a booth. We observed this with another couple who were placed at the entrance and who didn't seem too impressed although they were eventually moved. Frankly it's stupid to place a table at the entrance where it's not only cold but you would be surrounded by other people coming and going. My partner also had trouble getting behind our table to sit and when we moved the table to allow this a member of staff quickly came over to scold us and pushed the table back before we could and crushed my partners leg against the wall in the process. Apart from that though we both really enjoyed the meal and thought the food was delicious

The service and food was excellent I loved the decor and the atmosphere but I didn’t see the need to pay per person for an online booking, which caused some difficulties upon paying the bill as I was splitting it with friends. Saying that, however, I would gladly come back and recommend it to friends and family.

Great service and brilliant atmosphere, we intended to try a lot more of the menu, however my friend and I had a lot to talk about and didn't eat as much, however the staff where happy that we chatted over our main meal and finished our bottle of wine. We will definitely visit again.

Myself and my boyfriend had dinner on New Year’s Eve and it was probably one of the best meals I have had, we can both agree on that! It was out of this world! From the moment we walked through the door we felt very comfortable and relaxed. Staff asked us multiple times if we were enjoying the food, made sure we always had a drink too. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone! I have let my friends know how amazing this place is too, we will for sure be back! 😀

I was very excited to try your restaurant at its new location as we had been to the old location many times and were never disappointed however on entering your new location we could see from outside that there were quiet a few tables empty yet the member of staff who greeted us as we came informed us that as we did not make a booking we could not have a table. Confused we asked about a waiting time for a table or if we couldn’t take one of empty tables she rudely said again no you can’t have a table as you haven’t booked and we are fully booked. We left quiet upset and then proceeded to try and find somewhere else to eat. I then went on to your website to try and book to go another day to find I was still able to make a booking for the current day and in fact could make a booking in ten minutes time. We then went back to your restaurant with our booking and we’re giving a table. The food was great as always but as we enjoyed our meal and chatted I noticed the restaurant got no busier and in fact other customers had walked in with no booking and were given a table. I don’t understand why were told something that turned out to be very untrue. I feel insulted and for that reason I won’t be back.

Lovely staff and great decor! It seemed to take a wee while to get our son's starter and a couple more tortellini would have been welcome in the main course, but it was all delicious!

My only comment is if sitti nvm near the door on a cold winters night there is a constant draught every time someone opens the door to come or leave. Suggest a curtain or something around the inner porch so people sitting near door aren’t constantly cold Can’t fault food service and restaurant. Just a minor improvement 🤗

We had to wait over 45 minutes for our table despite the fact that we had booked for a specific time - would not recommend to come here during any Christmas or holiday period.

We arrived for our booking at 7.15 and were told that people were just paying up so we would have to wait a few moments until the table was ready. We were offered a drink while we waited. We had to wait about an hour for our table after being told a few times that people were just paying up. Although to be fair, because of our long wait, we were offered 2 rounds of cocktails on the house. This was a nice gesture to make up for our very long wait. When we got to our table, the service was very good and our food came promptly. Even though we were late to our table, at no time were we rushed or felt pressured to finish up. The food was lovely. And overall we had a positive experience despite the wait.

Great staff, Gine, Stephen and more recently Anne Marie give reassurance of the consistently high standards. True authentic Italian food and ambience.....please don’t change ANYTHING or ANYBODY.
