“Don't believe the hype.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We Were looking for fresh baked, rustic Italian pizza and found this place online. The website mentions organic, fresh, local ingredients so we thought we had found the perfect place. Other reviews mentioned slow delivery so we drove down to collect our order. While we were waiting they had to nip out for more supplies, not to the local farm shop though, the guy returned with numerous bags of frozen chips, with the £1 price tag clearly visible, so he'd probably been to Iceland. The Cajun mushrooms tasted like they had come from the same place. The pizza was nice but we could have got the same meal from the supermarket for half the price.

“Certainly not the "best in South West" as claimed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Ordered take away pizzas and chips for home delivery. They were not hot and rather stale.

More importantly, even had they been hot/fresh, there were nothing like Italian pizza - more like what I'd expect from an overn-ready supermarket packet in the 80s.

And to think that it cost..... I'd have been happier with an Aldi pizza for a tenth of the price
