Hilton Smythe are delighted to introduce to the market Sorrento’s. This multi-cuisine restaurant has been trading from the current prime location since November 2015. Formally operating from different premises around a year before moving.

Sorrento’s offers a diverse menu and is renowned for its delicious burgers, using only premium-cut marbled beef.
