Don’t really like pizza, but it was raining so I nipped in to this place for dinner. What a lovely surprise. I hated being sat at a high table, but none of that mattered with the wonderful food, lovely cold wine and fab friendly staff....More

Nice to find somewhere with a few vegan options, 3 pizzas and 2 desserts. As well as a vegan special when I visited. The only downside is that the high tables don't all have seats with backs on them. I was aware when visiting that...More
