Riight next door to Rotham Manor where we were staying so it was a good place for a quick lunch from their wood fired pizza oven or a pasta. Large pizzas so consider ordering one between two if you can agree on the topping, or get them to do a half and half and order a side salad. Outside seating... More

Wife and I decided to go pizza-sit down instead of the normal pizza-take away. So we went to the local pizzas joint, Woodpeckers. Very friendly service, relaxed and laid back atmosphere. And best of all - delicious pizza on a very thin base, the way we love it. Want a right priced large pizza on a thin base? Go to... More

Thin crispy pizza is absolutely huge. Have the hot one. Beers and wines very cheap. 2 pizzas, 1 pint of beer and a large glass of winefor £13! And all with outstanding service. Beat that!

Popped in for a spot of lunch, I had their tagliatelle and meatballs and my wife had a pizza. We found the food to be of high quality for this type of restaurant. The staff were very pleasant and the service prompt. I would recommend this place.

The best thin crust pizzas in town are made here. The staff are efficient, helpful, & friendly. The outside seating areas are basic but OK. The inside area is more comfortable but could be better ventilated. I prefer to take away my pizzas & enjoy them at home. The take away service is good with reasonable waiting times.

Pizza tasted good but wasn't anything special really. Good value for price, nothing to complain about. Good and friendly service.
