Morso is a modern community-centred restaurant and bar, serving hand-crafted fresh pasta and small plates of Italian bites alongside innovative Grappa-based cocktails.

We take inspiration from Italian tradition but give all of our dishes a Morso twist. We select fresh, great quality, regional ingredients and let them speak for themselves in our cooking. Our fresh pasta is handmade in-house daily and always served "al dente”. All of our food is served in small portions allowing our guests to discover a variety of styles in one meal.

On the bar front, we chose Grappa as our champion spirit. Distilled from wine pomace, Grappa is a superlative drink and highly versatile. It can resemble vodka, rum and gin in its younger forms as well as exhibit flavours of scotch, brandy and cognac in its aged versions. We use it in all of our cocktails, revisiting some old classics, alongside our own house-potions.

We invite you all to join us for a meal and to take part in the #grapparevolution

Morso is a fantastic local restaurant with a varied menu of really tasty freshly made dishes. The wine list is small but is devoted to quality over quantity.
Staff are lovely and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly.

I have visited on a number of occasions and have had a great experience every time. The food is fantastic and the staff are great. They go above and beyond to make sure that everything is perfect. I highly recommend Morso and will continue to go back again and again. The only slight downside is the back room which is very dark. Saying that, I have always been given a table in the front.

First time in Morso, won’t be the last one. Very good home made pasta and entries. I would also recommend the chocolate cake with cream for dessert. It is an excellent option in term of value for your money. Consider portions are not big you can try different thing from the menu. We will go back

So grateful to have discovered Morso. I’ve never had a less than delicious meal here, from perfect arancini to cacio e pepe too good to share. Cocktails with grappa are different and tasty. Service is always excellent.

Food was excellent.

Service was very friendly and efficient however during covid there were some things that they got stunningly wrong.

They took the credit card rather than let us hold it at all times
There was no sanitiser on tables
They sang happy birthday at a table turning all lights down and encouraging others to sing too.

I was not impressed by their food or service, but what made me leave this review is their shift manager (on the night of 10/10/2020) who, after I expressed my dissatisfaction to him, said "you can leave a bad review if that makes you feel good!" I told him then I will make sure to mention what you said in my review. I asked him what is your name, but he refused to tell me.
One does not expect a business to be ran well with such manager and repelling attitude.

Amazing amazing amazing. Quality of the food, speed of the service. Friendly owners and engaging with the customers. I absolutely loved my experience. The interiors are a little basic for how amazing the food is but 100% it will not stop me going back and recommending it to all my friends and family.
Thank you so much!

So happy to find this splendid neighbourhood restaurant. Wonderful service and explanation of menu and very nice food. Our party had a selection of starters to share and then had excellent home made pasta dishes followed by the best looking Tiramisu ever. House white really good. Will be back soon.

Food is always delicious here and service excellent and friendly.
Small restaurant which has lost some tables due to covid but also has managed to put some tables outside on the pavement
We ate inside but felt perfectly comfortable.
Its very easy to over order but even if you don't you can always order more which will usually turn up very quickly

We booked and were very much looking forward as there was a £20 off offer advertised online Tues-Thurs.
The food was ok but service was average, waiting a long time to order and then all the small plates of food arriving in such quick succession we felt rushed to eat. When the bill came waitress would not honour their £20 reduction offer as we had not quoted the code on arrival which was a shame in these uncertain times despite us querying it. What was supposed to be a relaxing evening with friends ended with us feeling disappointed by the poor customer service when we had previously heard such positive things about the restaurant.
