Went in on spec on a Saturday night but they managed to find us a table. Pizza as always was good, as were the desserts. Only downside was the lager wasn't refrigerated. The waitress did apologise when she brought it and offered me a change though. An easy choice for reasonable food at a... read more

They let us hold the table for 15 minutes afterthe booking time despite several members of the party being delayed. The food arrived just as we needed it to as we were running late. And it was tasty and... More

Great food, very close to the Palace Theatre, but dreadfully slow service. It took nearly 2 hrs for a meal, I wouldn't call it express!
