I ordered 2 of the spaghetti in tomato, and it was bland. It had barely been seasoned and tasted like the pasta water more than anything. We also ordered the buffalo wings, which were ok but each portion has 3 small wings in for £7! I think that’s a little over priced. Not in a rush to eat here again.

Overall I enjoyed it. Just want to mention the girl who served us was amazing especially during this period as the restaurant was really busy and she was the only person serving. Thought she was amazing and she was spot on with trying to keep everyone at a distance and safe.

So much better through the week. Gets far too busy with the bar of a weekend when you’re trying to eat.

Main course was really good, but the dessert was burnt to a crisp! I had the Nutella and marshmallow calzone, to cover how burnt it was, they covered it in icing sugar. Put a bad taste on an otherwise great experience

We love The Book. Staff are always friendly and attentive, and it is great to have somewhere local with Live entertainment Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Never had a bad experience and we always look forward to our next visit.

Lovely place with excellent service however the portion size of the salad is very small considering the cost. No complaints at all otherwise

Waited about 35 minutes before we even got a drink and we’d booked our table, it’s normally good service but they couldn’t cope with how busy it was, also they’d ran out of a lot of items on the menu
