New menu available now!

Spring is nearly here – and that means it’s time for a menu make-over! We can’t wait to share some of our fantastic new dishes with you. To whet your appetite here’s an idea of what could be hitting your plate very soon.

Our brand new Verdure al forno is a tasty way to help towards your five a day! We lightly season and simply roast in the oven a range of fresh colourful, seasonal vegetables.

Public - Verdure al Forno

Our Melanzane is back by popular demand. We’ve improved and refreshed this tasty dish. We build a tower of sliced aubergine, with tomato, herbs, Gran Moravia and mozzarella cheese and top it with breadcrumbs. It’s a popular (and delicious!) option for vegetarians.

Public -Melanzane Parmigiano

We’re introducing two new pizzas. The first is a hot and spicy pizza with a ‘njuja topping. Beware – it’s spicy! The second is a delicious pizza topped with tomato, mozzarella, tuna and diced red onion. We’re sure this pizza will make waves with all you fish fans.

Finally our penne all ‘arrabiata is simple but classic edition to the menu. We serve penne pasta with a spicy tomato and chilli sauce and finish with Gran Moravia cheese.

Our new site, Pesto at the Davenport Arms in Marton, is now open!

We’ve transformed the former tavern with an investment of £600,000.

The design of the project has been led by Neil Gatt, co-owner of Pesto Restaurants. commenting on the development, he said: “It has been a pleasure to work on the transformation of this traditional pub. The building is a key local landmark and we want Pesto at The Davenport Arms to continue to be a valued part of the community.

“This has been achieved through the combination of an inviting exterior and a relaxed, contemporary interior, creating a welcoming dining experience for all.”

We’ve incorporated an outdoor beer garden and central bar, offering a broad range of cask ales. The 120 cover dining space also features open fires, low beams and bright, spacious areas, giving the restaurant a laid back feel.

Don’t just take our word for it! Come and visit us and experience for yourself!
