Prices are great, you can get a proper meal for under £10, the pizzas are huge and they will box up what you can't finish. You get free shots, chocolate, fruit and peanuts at the end of your meal - always good. The food is...More

I had dinner here with a group of friends. The negative was that there were ten of us squeezed round a table comfortable for six. However, that was more than made up for by delicious food, good and friendly service and very keen prices. If...More
