I've had a Cajun Chicken pizza, the base was good but the pizza quite bland, it didn't have much taste.More

Thank you for your review. I'm sad you didn't enjoy the chicken pizza.Maybe a more spicy pizza like the Durbs or the spicy veg pizza would be more to your liking. When you back , please talk to me and I'd love to buy you...More

I called the Restaurant to try and make a booking for New Year's eve. They would just answer the phone and then hang-up without even talking. Eventually the manager answered the call and did the same thing whilst I was enquiring to book a table. If service is Soooo Awful before u arrive, what more when you arrive?????? I was appalled after all the positive reviews of TripAdvisor? ????????
