We needed some food & Pappa G's was open. Having tried his wood fired pizza's before we knew it was a good choice. This time we shared a large pizza with only one topping but it is possible to share 2 choices, & there is usually a good variety. Seating is available outside & that is very pleasant on a... More

Recommended to us by the Pinewood Motel we ordered takeaway pizzas, and were told when they would be ready to save us waiting. (Although we did stop to talk to the proprietor - a fellow Brit!) The pizzas were very good - well worth the visit.

Just arrived here, cold and on a motorbike. We drove around the town which was mostly closed, and luckily found this place with quite a few patrons in. We parked up, and quickly the pizza menu looked promising. Stepping in and seeing the wood fired pizza oven looked great. We ordered a garlic bread and split-topping pizza. Both were awesome...

Thin tasty base. Quality local goodies on top! Lamb pizza is a stand out. Quick service and an enjoyable meal all round. Enjoy.

My guess if the locals had the same idea i did. We came back later and received 2 fantastic pizzas. They tasted great, made... More

We had stayed overnight in Fairlie to go to the Red Stag Restaurant, but we did not know they were closed on Tuesdays. Pappa G's was the only place open for dinner, and it turns out that we were so glad we did not miss this unusual gourmet experience. We had a large woodfired pizza, excellent crust, a thin coating...

For a truely authentic woodfired pizza you cant go past Pappa g's - absolutely delicious pizza. If you are just driving through Fairlie do yourself a favour and stop for lunch or dinner at Pappa g's - you wont be disapointed!
