Held a lunch here for my mum and her friends. The food was lovely, and Alex went out of his way to accommodate all my strange requests. Wonderful staff.

We walked in and ordered a take-away. While we waited we had a glass of wine which was lovely and generous. The service was friendly and we didn't wait long.

We all had pizzas which were delicious. Lovely thin based. They can uplift the service a bit. Friendlier, remember what is ordered.

We only had a takeaway pizza but it was excellent. The restaurant seemed to be full when I called around and the staff very friendly and helpful. Lots of other choices on the menu too, definitely worth a visit.
