We only had a couple of drinks here but vowed to come back for the pizza soon. Funky little hidden gem down a wee alleyway. Cool set up.

We enjoyed a casual dinner - beer and pizza - in Hone’s garden setting. Order what you’d like and food is delivered to the table. Many unique pizza combos or pick your own toppings. Fun, natural setting in the town of Russell. Pizza was piping hot, wood fired and tasty! Great for families too!

This pizza place is tucked away in Russell and is a real delight. Most outdoor tables with parasols but a small area under cover. You can't book unless you are a very large party but we turned up around 715pm and were seated without too much trouble although it was almost full even that early. The drinks came quickly but the pizzas took a little while to appear, by which time we were on our second bottle of wine. However the pizzas were very good, all hand cooked in a pizza oven. Lots of lights in the trees which were very effective and added to the ambiance.
Would recommend.

Visited this establishment 7 times over 7 days....... That tells you something.
Excellent wood fired pizzas in slightly Bohemian, alfresco surroundings, good music and popular with the young. Engaging "cheeky chapped" English barman and authentic Italian pizzaman. Free wifi
Only gripe, order at bar, prepay and self serve.

Six of us visited Hone’s garden for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The service was relaxed and friendly and the food was great. Loved the calamari, fish tacos and especially the wood fired pizzas. Will definitely be visiting again.
