Simple menu, and great pizzas. Good quality and good service. The restaurant is on the small side, however, was perfect for two people having lunch.

Simple menu, but a few specials including a lovely veggie one. Huge pizzas but lovely sourdough ones so not stodgy like so many pizza places. 2 pizzas, 2 drinks and so reasonably priced at 25 quid!! Will revisit again soon!!!
