These were freshly made to order and worth the wait. The food was displayed very artistically on the slate plate.note to self eat the burger first as... More

Went for lunch. Service was excellent starters were also good. Pizza was average, very thin base, like a crisp and almost no tomato but toppings were ok. Good value but not amazing.
