As we were a party of 14 for a birthday we skipped the vibrating order system and were served at the table. However, the overall service was remarkably slow from start to finish.

My pizza (BBQ chicken), when it eventually arrived, was acceptable, but not a patch on those served across the road in Pizza Express. One tip: take your own knife as this restaurant provides only blunt children's safety versions.

Things then got worse with the 'DJ' playing at a volume that made even shouty conversation difficult.

Given the plethora of new and long-standing premises in Christchurch that serve lovely food, this won't be one we rush back to soon.

We have DJs every Friday and Saturday night in Soho, this is part of our attraction for a weekend night which we advertise on our website and make all tables eating downstairs aware of

We hope you'll visit us again and we might prove our passion to provide a great customer service and a good night out

Thanks

Visited the Westbourne site and found it fantastic so thought to try the one closer to home. Did not disappoint. Friendly staff, great food, pocket friendly with great 2 for 1 pizza choices. Buzzer system was quite enjoyable and atmosphere bustling and friendly!

We moved to Christchurch just over a year ago and Soho was one of the first places that we tried. The atmosphere is always good - its always reasonably lively and there are some nice comfy sofas to go with the variety of seating including some outside with views of the castle if the weather is warm. The staff are all very friendly and the service is always good. The pizzas are tasty and especially good value on a Thursday evening when they are 2 for 1 (as are the cocktails!). Definately worth a visit at any time of day or night.
