We were treating our friends and we all Loved the food... small note; one of our tomato breads was scorched (easily happens with pizza ovens) but they replaced it no problem. So will not mark them down for correcting a small issue. After all it’s never happened before in the years we’ve been going.
The staff were Friendly, the atmosphere was nice and relaxed and the food was very good value. We Will definitely be returning with our family soon.
Very good atmosphere. Lovely environment, booked this for a surprise date for my partner and it was just what we wanted. The food was delicious, huge portions it was so filling. Wish we had room to try a pudding but we didn’t. Staff were so polite. I had my main course boxed up because I couldn’t finish. There was a problem with all the gas on the pumps but they handled it well by getting in bottles of beers, Pepsi etc instead which was very organised. Will come back again definitely to try more from the menu as it was hard to decide what to have the first time with so much choice.
