Italians have known for years that pizza and beer are about the happiest couple you can find. This is what Wedge Issue Pizza & Beer is revealing to London. This Holborn haunt on Clerkenwell Road has honed its focus to these two holy pleasures. There is more than decent wine, refreshing salads and fabulous pastas to mix it up, but the crispy creations proceeding from this pizzeria’s oven, and its impressive array of craft beers, are what keep punters coming back in droves. Of course the classics are taken care of to perfection, like the unbeatable ‘Chelsea’ featuring fresh tomato sauce, real mozzarella and pungent fresh basil. But some new boys keep pizza-lovers on their toes and tantalise the taste buds, like the vegan ‘Clerkenwell’ of succulent veggies on a rich San Marzano tomato base. Grab the group, plan a date or line up a frothy one and you’ll see what we’re talking about - just make sure to book in advance, because the secret is out!
Brilliant pizza with great vegan and veggie options. Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Quick service if you book which makes it a good work lunch option for groups.
Amazing dairy free pizza - the best in london. The calzone is out of this world. Will keep coming back. THANK YOU WEDGE ISSUE PIZZA.
It was great - awesome pizzas, great service and lovely beer. We will definitely be back in the not too distant future for our lunchtime team meetings!
Delicious pizza and a great selection of craft beer. You know it's good pizza when you eat all of your crusts. My favourite pizza place in London!
The pizza and drinks were great but our service was terrible. Twice we were brought the wrong pizzas, one didn't arrive til the rest of the party had finished (despite asking 3 times eventually it turned out it still wasn't even in the oven), and there was no apology when it did arrive. Our side order was also forgotten. We waited for the bill til most of our party had to leave (about 15 min) then asked again st the counter and was told it was 'busy'. Again no apology when the bill eventually came and we asked for the late pizza to be removed which it was. I would have expected the side and drink if the person whose pizza hasn't arrived to be removed too, as when we realised it wasn't yet in the oven we asked to leave it as we were finishing but it was delivered anyway.
The positives: The pizza, base, sauce and cheese was of good quality - the sort you'd expect from any alright pizza place in the capital. Craft beer was good. The negatives: There were very little staff around, the women who served us barely spoke and made more noises than words, not friendly and we weren't convinced she'd even listened to our order. Even on arrival she was not remotely friendly and to be honest looked underwhelmed by her surroundings and situation (probably not helped by the fact there was hardly any other staff!). Worst of all was the craft your own pizza. An absolute waste of money. Pathetic meager scattering of toppings. It did not feel remotely like I'd 'piled tons on' (my intention) it looked like there weren't enough ingredients and so they'd had to ration them out between tons of pizzas. Seriously a huge disappointment and I wish I'd just gone for a cheaper standard margherita, the experience would have been no different. I wouldn't go here again and wouldn't eagerly recommend anyone. if someone asked me how it was I'd say "meh pizzas were ok but the staff were rude and don't do the make your own it's [swear word] and a waste of money'
Two of the pizza's appeared to fall off our order and did not arrive with the others, but the folks at Wedge Issue dealt with it without any fuss and even gave us our entire meal for free! Now that's customer service! The quality of the pizzas were second to none. I am certain I will return, and this time happily pay for the meal!
Nice restaurant. Did what I was looking for in that it could accommodate a big group including a couple of kids. The pizzas were good quality, I had a a Soho which was decent but the Smithfield Meat Market made me jealous so perhaps a better option. Interesting selection of beer too. No issues with service, as you would wish it to be - relaxed, friendly and polite.
Excellent pizzas, large and very tasty. Good range of beers and lager. Real Ale and Bitter a little too cold for full flavour. They also now do a small selection of deserts. Recommend the pizza dough with hot melted chocolate, lovely. Rather cool temperature in the restaurant but it was an especially cold day. Would definitely return as good value
Our first visit to Wedge Issue was fantastic. My husband is vegan, and it was so nice to have a great vegan option on the pizza menu, plus beers listed as vegetarian! There was a great ambience, super-friendly service, and really tasty food. We'll definitely be back.
