I went in with a friend for drinks yesterday but I won't be making that mistake again. A G&T and a beer somehow came to £17, and when asked to check how that could be right the girl behind the bar just shrugged and pointed to the till. Avoid this place at all costs, either they're theives or they're painfully... More

We visited early evening, when there were plenty of staff and few customers. Initial impressions - it looks good inside, staff were friendly and the music was great! We were dealt with promptly and politely. I expect to wait for freshly cooked food, and this was well worth the surprisingly long wait. However, once we had finished our main course... More

Pretty average Mexican food. Limited menu Had steak burrito. £13 for a burrito. With a little melted cheese sitting in a small pool of tomato sauce. The steak was well seasoned although a bit chewy. No salad or sides otherwise. Pricey I think just for what was essentially a hot wrap. Fajitas looked a more substantial feed and cheaper (if... More

I had the pulled BBQ pork and a salad, no bun and a glass of the house Italian red wine. Totally worth it. I ate every single bit of my rocket salad and BBQ pork. Oh man, it was sweet and delicious! The wine was not disappointing either. Everyone enjoyed their pizzas. Our Wait was very attentive, we had a... More

After having really good wood fired pizzas last year, to getting the starter turn up with the main course and then they sent out the advertised special of king prawn and chirzo with salami instead of chirzo. In fairness the dish had very big prawns and lots of them and they gave us free drinks as an apology.

My husband and I visited on a busy lunchtime and enjoyed an Elvis pizza with jalapeno between us and roasted vegetables. The food was piping hot and obviously freshly made. The pizzas are my favourite because they are not only tasty but thin and crispy. The wine was a lovely rioja in big glasses and came promptly after ordering. Although... More

When you see pizza oven a little wait is to be expected but the staff was organized and attentive. All our dishes were very good and reasonably priced. Very pleasant lunch stop.
