A pretty wide selection to choose from and the onsite 'real' pizza oven made it a no brainer what I was going to have! Staff were friendly and attentive. And rounded off with pretty impressive coffee too. Good marks for what it was.

Ate here a few nights because the food was too good! Great atmosphere where you can eat at the bar, in front of a fireplace in comfy chairs, or family friendly tables. The pizza was really good, and the staff was really friendly.
