I was in Tavistock for a work meeting and needed a good restaurant in the evening. A super calm restaurant which can cater for vegan and gluten free people like me! The food is delicious and the wonderful smoothies. I will definitely be visiting again and recommending to friends.

Every time we visit Tavistock my sister in law always suggests a pizza from robertsons saying how nice they really are. But with us living in Cheshire pizza chains are everywhere and we get sick of them so when we come down to stay pizza is the last thing we want. Me and my wife had been out all day so decided on a takeaway to be delivered. Wow these are not your throw together pizza chain pizzas. The flavours and toppings are outstanding so fresh and tasty. The coleslaw was mind-blowing the delivery guy was friendly and also recommend a great local beech to us. Many thanks when we return we will definitely be having one again.

Thank you so much for your review. We agree with you about the chain restaurants-- it's a totally different thing to what we do! We make everything on site from quality, local and artisan ingredients, keeping everything fresh and delicious. We make our own dough every day from the best organic flour, we make our special tomato herb sauce by slow-cooking all of the ingredients, we source excellent cheese and local fresh toppings and care about every element of our menu in the same way. We want every single thing to have loads of flavour (as it should be naturally!) and we're so glad this comes through for you.

Also we're pleased our lovely delivery driver was able to help you with your holiday plans! We really look forward to seeing you next time you are in the area. Thank you for taking the time to write.

The lovely waitress lass at this nuclear family restaurant (owned by a husband and wife team, not oozing radioactive gamma rays) tended to us in just the right measure - neither too distant nor too cloying. We were a somewhat fussy party of five and everyone chose a different dish . . . and then we all fought over whose was the best! Seriously, the meatballs were heavenly, you could almost taste the little free range piggy trotting towards his fate. The linguini was perfectly al dente. I really do not understand some of the negative vibes from other posters - but note we had booked early and went on a quiet evening.

Friday night, so we booked ahead for 7pm as you never know do you. People started coming in at 8pm, they obviously eat later in Tavistock than in Yorkshire.
I tried a pizza with green pesto on the base instead of tomato - brilliant. I've not had this before, with anchovies, artichokes and capers. The flavours were strong and very tasty.
As a starter we had nachos with 3-bean sauce which was good too.
Thin based pizza's, interesting toppings, all fresh and full of flavour, what else would you want?

We're so glad you enjoyed your meal with us! We do try to keep things exciting with a range of interesting pizza toppings, made with artisan and locally produced toppings, hand-made dough from organic flour, and our special homemade tomato herb sauce. Or not! The pesto base (instead of tomato sauce) is one of our favourites and is great if you like strong flavours as you mentioned.

The nachos are also a particular favourite, which can come with our bean pate or with chilli beef. Lots of cheese, jalapenos, all melted in our brick pizza ovens and topped with our house salsa and soured cream.

And yes, it does seem people like to eat with us a bit later, however we do often fill up earlier with families with children, and then later again at 8... but it is always a good idea to book!

Thank you so much for your lovely review, we thrive on comments like yours and hope to see you again when you return to the area.
