Great pizza and really good value on Mondays, when it's £6 for any pizza (although would've been nice to have been told that the mozzarella extra which is a recommended extra with one of the pizza in still an additional £2). Big pizzas, so great value for money, and the skin on fries with aioli were tasty. Nice big open restaurant, with space outside, and friendly service (service charge is included in the bill).
Food was brilliant! Shared two pizzas and both were fantastic. Service was a bit slow and forgot about us at one point but food made up for it! Will be revisiting.
Great environment and service, but our drinks were forgotten and the waitress could not divide our bill. We had to correct her, nearly walked out paying half price. Great food though and will be back!
