We went with friends on a week night and I was happy to see a lot of people eating there. Service was quick and efficient, menu selection ample and the quality excellent. Not cheap for a chain pizza place but we did enjoy it.

Firstly the service and staff were excellent . Secondly the food let em down. This is a note for head office, the macaroni cheese 🍲🍲starter was cold twice, twice , I think it must come in frozen, then put in a hot metal dish, but is still cold in parts after microwaving, Really odd, we had garlic bread 🍞🍞each ,...

Sadly, the quality of the food did not match the service. 3 pizzas that were of a similar (or worse) standard than the frozen ones available from any supermarket. Not value for money. Nowhere near the level of our last visit.

Called in for a quick pizza at lunchtime today. The restaurant was packed with a great atmosphere. Our order was taken promptly but there was a small issue with timing of delivery. It was dealt with superbly - with the Manager more than compensating for the problem. Staff were on the ball, interested in what they were doing and cheerful.... More

I went in for an amazing low price lunch and due to a problem my pizza wasn't perfect as normally there they are great. However, they immediately resolved the problem and acted far better than any other restaurants do! The manager and the their staff were absolutely perfect!!!!!!!!

Deliberately chosen for a quick and reliable pizza before the cinema on 30th December (a Wednesday). Three tables occupied at midday - but a queue of twenty and all tables full by 12.45, a great sign - never eat in empty restaurants. Avoid their special pizzas (all with extra margin) and stick to be basic ones.

Went here for my birthday this year. It is by the harbour so had a lovely atmosphere. The food was lovely, what you expect. Staff were friendly and chatty which is rare to see. Recommend!

We will recommend this place to anyone visiting the area, we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food when we ended up here by accident.
