We like the Rugby events here. They go out of their way to promote Rugby matches and if you wear the Springbok colours, well lets just say you're in for some special treatment. This is a perennial local hangout for the hard core locals, young and old. It's also one of those places that has heart and something unique. Can't... More

We went to Carlyles for their monthly wine tasting evening and ordered a few different dishes. My favourite being the Carlyles focaccia which is a very crispy thin based pizza topped with blue cheese, caramelised onions, chilli and garlic, oh so delicious. Their ribs were fantastic and their mini calzones were good too.

If you ever go and collect your Takeaways around the corner, you will see how absolutely disgustingly, filthy the place is, using dish towels to wipe their hands while making the pizzas that looked like they had just washed the floor with!! although the floor had not looked like it had been washed in weeks!! as for the layers of...

The burgers are surprisingly good - especially the blue cheese burger... We put the chips in the oven for a few more minutes and get the most awesome crispy chips. Also, the pizza is good!! 4.5 out of 5!

How often do you have five people, all ordering five different pizzas, and all exclaiming it was their best pizza experience ever? This happened to our party this week. An interesting menu with even more interesting flavour combinations. What a treat. In addition to this, the waitress was more than someone merely taking our order. She knew the menu backwards...

Top tip: if there are 5-8 in your party get the wooden table by the entrance for the breeze and the view. We were a party of five. The waitress, phenomenally busy yet efficient and full of fizz, recited a long list of specials and took our orders. The food was good: 3 or 4 stars depending on the dish... More

Rob Carlyle is such an amenable host (and co founder) of Carlyle's. In our group - mixture of adults and kids - we had a fab time. My pasta dish - mushroom filled - was outstanding and friends who had pizzas raved about it. Thoroughly enjoyable vibe. Will be back for sure to try other menu items which on other... More
