About Wedge Issue Pizza & Beer
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!

The food is always excellent when I visit, and the staff are really friendly. The craft beers are very good also. Always best to book a table as lunch times get busy!
Lovely staff and a great place for a team lunch. The personalised bill was genius and made paying super easy! Great pizza, and nice selection of drinks.
We went for lunch. The pizza was great, everyone enjoyed the experience there. I like that they have a good veggie and vegan menu. Thanks!!
Excellent, great service and food, I love this place. The pizza is delicious, really well cooked and a nice selection on the menu, I've had Marinara twice now :)
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.
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.
Delicious pizza with creative topping suggestions, appropriately named after different areas of London such as the Billingsgate for a fishy theme or the Smithfield for a meaty one - or create your own at no extra cost. Lovely, relaxed atmosphere and excellent, prompt service.
The pizza was great, fast service and liked the unusual drink menu- although they were run out of rhubarb yesterday. It was quite noisy, we could hardly hear each other at a table next to the window and we had to shout.. The open mic was a bit disappointing- the acts were focusing more on bad language and the coming&going audience rather than entertaining.. The upstairs noise was disturbing downstaurs as well- it should be separated somehow.
Wedge is close to our office and we don't go there enough! Forgotten what great pizzas they do and the selection of beers is brilliant. Service is really friendly and relaxed - we'll definitely be booking again.
Great pizza, good beer selection, would definitely come again. One thing to watch out for: the position on the map was wrong when I looked - it's at the junction between Leather Lane and Clerkenwell Road.
Overall a great experience. The food was delicious and the beers were excellent. One of the pizza's was a little burnt but it got exchanged without any hassle. Service was perhaps a little slow but we weren't in a rush at all.
Amazing pizza, very friendly staff. We regularly go there for this is the best pizza in London, and our Italian friend agrees. They also have great beer selection, make sure to check it out !
We were quickly seated as we were there at the start of lunch hour. The food was ok, nothing special, but they needed more staff when it got busy - I was pretty much forgotten about when I tried to pay and had to wave them down a few times.
Fantastic pizzas and lovely service. It was a nice evening so the windows were open and sunshine streaming in. Good noise levels as well - great place to catch up with a friend.
Very nice pizza, all the team enjoyed. You also had a great vegan option, which meant our vegan staff were happy! Lovely staff at Wedge and good beer :) Thanks for having us.
The pizza was great and the serving size was also good. Also, some of the drinks they have can't be found anywhere else. Will definitely go back to try the other pizzas.
The food was great but the service was very slow. We only had an hour but ended up staying for an hour and a half as we waited for the plates to be cleared for ages. The guy serving us was great but he had no help.
Brilliant pizza at a great price. The concept that you can build your own pizza with as much of the toppings you desire for £9 no matter what is ace.
Great pizza, good beers. What's not to like! Definitely would recommend this place to go out for team dinners or with friends after work. Only service could be a bit more on the ball :-)
Awesome, hot, thin crispy bases with super fresh toppings and great drinks all served quickly with a smile and chat. Deffo going back as soon as we can!
Had a delicious lunch...easy to choose from the menu without an endless choice of pizza. Any pizza can be turned into a calzone if preferred. Nice atmosphere and great for large group lunches.
Wedge issue pizza is really tasty and excellent value for money. Would definitely be coming back. Even though the restaurant was full the service was fast on a lunch break from work.
Nice place, pizza was good and staff were friendly but the service was really slow. Had to ask for our order to be taken and our pizza took a good 25 minutes to arrive - expected quicker service at lunchtime.
Great food and vibe. Really good value and owner is very friendly and welcoming. Beer and drinks also great. Would highly recommend, especially for cheap eats.
Lots of interesting pizzas and pastas on the menu. My pizza (Smithfield Meat Market) was really good. Service was quick although the evening I went was very quiet in the restaurant.
Pizza was excellent and the staff were very accommodating but service was slow and we had to wait a long time for the pizzas even though the restaurant was really quiet.
Vegans be warned - the cooks handling meat also make your vegan food without cleaning hands and utensils between touching meat and moving on to vegan. This was considered not to be an issue by management when pointed out to them. However for those who are vegan on religious, moral or allergy grounds this is of concern. Left leaving a 25% tip but nevertheless a nosey customer accused us of making an issue to gain a discount!
Great that they have a vegan option - service was slow but it was lunch hour so expected. Very yummy ! I will be returning
Took a while to arrive, but the pizza was delicious. Also happy with the fact that they serve mead, which is quite a rare find. Staff was very friendly.
Great pizza, great beer. I'll be going back. Also really good garlic bread. I'd have liked slightly more choice on tap. Also v easy to book thru Quandoo
Very good pizza, even without a wood fire oven, which surprised me...and really good people! Like it a lot, I went there twice already with new friends...great place...
Great food. Service can be a little slow if they are busy (but that's because there are only 2 people serving all the tables), however the food is great and well worth trying out.
Pizza great. Good amount of toppings an cheese. The Calzonne looked particularly goo although I didn't have it myself. Service could be better though and the restaurant needs better ventilation it gets smoky.
Delicious pizza and wonderful selection of local 'craft' beers at a very reasonable price. Good vegan and veggie options too. Highly recommended. We will be returning.
Great vegan pizza! Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Well priced and well made pizza. Good location, great staff and amazing pizza! Would come back again.
The pizza was ok, the Honey beer was better. Service was ok, we got our food quick enough to eat there in a lunch hour. I'd recommend 'The Smithfield Meat Market' pizza.
Lovely pizza and great service. Good for quick lunch. My pizza was delish as were the pizzas of my lunch mates. Would definitely go back.
Great pizza. Good for a work lunch as speedy service. Will be going back for sure at a later date with my colleagues for lunch.
Carbonara was a bit small. Pizza was good I had the soho and the nduja was very nice. Price was ok, but need some sort of lunch time deal.
Slightly disorganised, slightly disinterested service?? Lovely pizza though, great vegetarian & vegan choices too. And good selection of craft beer & wine. Wouldn't rush back but wouldn't avoid!
Pizza and garlic knots were great. Really delicious. I didn't get the chance to try the dessert as there was only one waiter and i didn't have time to wait around any longer than I already had.
Lovely food and great choice but service was slow and a huge table that came in after is was served first which didn't help. Staff were friendly.
Pretty good place, and they Also so vegan options so that's a plus! Though a bit hard to find and slow service, otherwise I'd recommend
Went at 1pm Friday lunchtime and waited an hour. There was a big group and they couldn't cope. Food was good when it came. Also smelt of burnt food as inadequate ventilation.
The pizza was fine but I have to say had two hairs in mine, so I definitely wouldn't go back there in a hurry and probably wouldn't recommend
The service was painfully slow especially considering we asked for the guy to be quick as we only had 45 minutes. the pizza was ok. Then he messed up my bill and over-charged me for service
An hour before we saw any food. I think for group bookings they should take your order in advance to avoid any delay. It was a satisfactory experience.
