“Brunch by day, and rustic stone-baked pizzas by night. Cotto's modern interior is bettered only by the taste of it's pizzas. Also perfect for breakfast or a coffee.”

“This is our local and we love it. It's an old victorian pub with loads of original features, great bar staff, a fantastic menu and the best pint of Guinness in town. You can even see the Guinness factory across the River from the pub. The menu is so good as the food is run by a family of Butchers. Treat yourself to the Rib-eye - they cook it to perfection. If you're on a budget the burger tastes just as good as the steaks.”
