Very expensive for not much pizza. 3 ‘large’ pizzas at $75. Gone quickly and left us still hungry. Better off with some frozen ones from the IGA next time.

I was very disappointed in the pizza’s I received last evening. $75 for three pizza’s with meagre toppings, was embarrassing to entertain our friends with. You are abusing the fact that Orford is quite isolated and people don’t have a great deal of choice. Shame!!!

We ordered pizzas. Not worth the money they cost. We might have been happier with frozen supermarket ones. Won't be going back for more.

Not overly friendly service. We waited an hour for our pizzas and we were one of the first lot of guests. Eventually I requested takeaway because my tired family was becoming restless. ....only to watch other tables being given their food and ours being prepared....More
