“Great Pizza”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Loved the pizza in the all you can eat pizza offer, only exception was that we arrived bang on the dot at the time it started and we and already missed the chips and garlic bread!

But hey we made up for it!

Atmosphere was brilliant and the setting well appointed. Also loved the huge fire in the outdoor area especially as it was winter!

“Great spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We stopped in here for a beer and were surprised by what we found on the inside. It was off season and this place deffo seemed like the place to go to. Full of people. Lovely interior - great spot for drinks. We didn't eat here - the food portions coming from the kitchen looked huge.. Worth a visit...
