“Great but...”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Went on the back of reviews here. First the positives. Cozy and atmospheric little place with lovely friendly service. Toppings on the pizzas were plentiful and tasty and the drinks ice cold (not always the case in a British restaurant). The let down and I'm afraid for me it's a biggy is the fact that the pizza bases are the nasty pre made ones you get on a £2.99 number from the supermarket...yes they are crispy but not like a pizza base should be. Clear up this one thing and it would be 5 star.
Perhaps it's just me being fussy because whilst we were there the phone never stopped ringing and they were rushed off their feet.

“Great Pizza...Simply great”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Recommended by a lady from St Agnes on the roadside in Exmoor... so... we had to visit a couple of hours later! It was worth delaying our drive for! Great pizza, great choice, great price. There was a little bit of a wait, but... they are making them fresh and to order and pretty swift at this. It just happened that there was high demand! Great news! Service was with a smile and pretty personable. Thoroughly recommended.

We love the pizzas here and there is a great selection of other things too - jackets, curries, burgers, etc. great homemade cakes and snacks, delicious local ice creams and also smoothies too. Love the Facebook offers and the loyalty card deal. And the fries are delicious!

“Great food”
Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Love the pizza ape. I used them as an example of good marketing on a recent event. The Facebook offers, staff and food are amazing. They should be in every town. From a business point of view the delivery network needs improvement but good food is worth travelling for.
