A Lengthy return

Having not eaten in the restuarant for some 12 years decided to take friends to the Pizza Restaurant. The owner, bless him has not changed a little greyer around the temple but still full of enthusiasm. The food is as good as ever cooked while you wait, a very laid back atmosphere, and very... read more

I agree totally with Michael A, My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for many years and never received anything but good service, good food and have been made to feel welcome at all times. The owners son referred to has never been anything but pleasant and helpful and the criticism directed at him is unfair and... More

I thought that Tripadvisor was a means of submitting a constructive helpful review of a business but clearly 'Gary C' thinks its for writing callous and offensive remarks about the staff in restaurants. The person he refers to in his review is a caring, considerate young man who has overcome considerable personal difficulties to enable him to take an active... More

Like others reviewing, a long absence since its heyday Visited as a group of 8 last night ( only 4 tables full in the restaurant) The complementary olives were nice but the bread sticks couldn't get any thinner could they? "Garlic" butter just a pale margarine spread( I remember home made strong butter and thicker sticks) considering not busy out... More

We've been coming here for years. Great atmosphere, great service & amazing food. The steak Dianna is to die for. Large portions!!! On the negative - the dessert offering is not amazing and some of the newer staff just don't seem to care quite so much

Went here for an evening meal on a Sunday night. The restaurant was empty apart from a large group who appeared to be having a celebration. We were seated right by the kitchen. We sat for almost 15 minutes before our drink orders were taken. We waited another 15 minutes, still no drinks. Then, along came an erratic looking gentleman... More

The waiter was so amusing and full of character. The waitress was ever so helpful. The food was excellent especially the puddings. It had a real vibe about it and asked if we wanted extra drinks and the menu had plenty for all desires.

We have been visiting the Pizza House for 9 years and it will always be one of my favourite restaurants! The food never, ever disappoints. Huge, Italian portions with the freshest ingredients and amazing flavour. We had one of our best meals ever there last night! They've changed the olives and they now serve huge, fresh olives with the most... More

Now the restaurant is more up for a Sunday roast than a good old Italian, Food a bit of a let down, not in amount I will add but in taste, Price not bad for what you get if it's lot's you want. Sorry to say my last visit, will now look for a new Italian that has good food... More
