We felt like a pizza night so we decided to order takeaways from Adelphi. We bought the deal which I thought was pretty good buy 2 get 1 free. We came home and digged in to finding mold on the pizza bases! We turned every single pizza and all 3 had them all. We couldn't help think that they probably... More

Tripadvisor have advised us ID#411244965 that your review is to be removed. This is the third time you have submitted this review which is incoreect and damaging to our business. I repeat our dough is made fresh daily and rolled for each pizza just before the toppings are put on and it goes in the oven. Absolutely impossible for mold... More

If you like greasy, fried, fat laden food then this is your place. We ate burgers and calamari and both were so greasy we felt physically sick after. Maybe it's because we don't tend to eat pub food, at least not low quality like this was. Sorry guys, we will not be back. Service was good however.

For dinner we decided to have some NZ steak. Cost of $22.50 was reasonable and the serving was of a good size. Tasted good.

The seafood chowder was amazing! Would come back again for it especially on a cold night. Meals are reasonably priced and nothing too fancy. Enjoyed the friendly service and the pool table.

we ate here two nights, it was so good. we had the pizzas, the seafood chowder, the salmon salad, and the steak. all were really excellent. very friendly staff and warm atmosphere! THe prices weren't too bad as restaurants there were all pretty expensive, this one was modest in comparison.
