Lunch at Fiddie’s is all about good homemade Italian dishes at pocket-friendly prices. Despite being pretty new (opened Oct 2015), they've already got a string of local regulars.

It may have a very English owner, but behind the scenes of this bright addition to the high street are competent Italian chefs cooking up everything from scratch, and the smell of garlic is well and truly in the air.

With lunch deals of any pasta or pizza from the menu with a drink for £6.90, or with wine for £7.90, between 12pm - 3pm every day, Fiddie’s is quickly becoming popular.

Every plate smells of something divine, including a very decent calzone stuffed with mozzarella, tomato, ham and mushrooms, usually £9.50 outside of lunch.

I'd also point you towards the gamberoni pasta with prawns, courgettes and herbs in a tomato sauce with a dash of cream, or the al pesto with fettuccine in a homemade pesto with the soft crunch of pine nuts - I really enjoyed them. You can also select your own pasta type, including a gluten-free option.
