The title says it all - good service, great pizza, and great food in a casual atmosphere. It's much better than you'd expect for a movie theater.

We visited Martinborough on a Sunday and Monday during the shoulder season, so were somewhat limited for choice. We went to Circus on the first night and were so pleased with the delicious food, reasonable prices and execellent/laid service that we went back on the second night. The food is fresh, plentiful and prepared in a way that showcases the quality of the produce used. On the second night we had the fish of the day (John Dory - fresh, lightly crumbed and served on a decadent potatoe gratin) and a mezze paller (massive amounts of delicious treats including home smoked salmon, a huge chunk of quivering blue cheese, perfectly grilled squid, homemade onion jam, duck pate, seriously note worthy garlicly sourdough etc). Right by the fire, we were so full and happy - it was def a highlight of a satisfyingly relaxing weekend break. Hardly anyone there on Monday which suited us fine.

We ate here one evening, sitting outside and enjoying the sunshine. Good bread and local olives to start and two excellent and filling pizzas set us up after a long day's touring. Casual dining at its best and I wish Trip Advisor would list it under Martinborough restaurants as well as an attraction.

We went to the circus restaurant the other night for dinner. The service was really good, and meals are very reasonably priced. We were lucky enough to get a nook table which made the atmosphere amazing. The restaurant sooned filled up, so best to get there early!!
