    A lovely welcome by the waitress with dark hair. Very polite and helpful. Sat us down. We didn’t order starters next time. we might try the summer kids eat free deal as we had just missed out on that. Had a bit of a wait for our food and was wondering why as a few people came after us and all got theirs food first? . The waitress with dark hair was attentive and great the whole time! The food was hot and fresh when it arrived and the portions were the perfect amount sized not small but not too much where we had leftovers wasted etc. very tasty have you got a new chef? Drinks were good. Prices were reasonable for a restaurant too. I have to mention this waitress as she really did make the experience a great one as she was brilliant. I would suggest having a tip choice on card machine as would of loved to leave a tip for her but her no cash on us at all.

    We can walk to the restaurant and have a drink. The menu is a bit limited, but the food was good and well-presented. We don't like piped music (certainly not pop), the staff did try to sit us away from speakers, so it wasn't too bad. The service was good.

    We had a lovely lunch out with the two children using kids eat free, what a fantastic deal! Marked the service down slightly as it was a bit slow to clear table between courses but nothing major, however we still all enjoyed our meal.

    My absolute favourite restaurant. Amazing food as always, quick service and super friendly staff. Took a friend for the first time and he loved it too! I’ve started to try new things from the menu - garlic mushrooms and the carnivore pizza - they did not disappoint!!!! Can guarantee I’ll be back very soon!!!

    I dined here last week and again today. I ordered the goats cheese bruschetta both times and today the first one had to be sent back as it was really undercooked and the second one wasn’t much better. It was also a completely different portion size and quality. I ordered the same mains aswell. Last weeks was lovely. Today the pasta was dry with hardly any sauce in and it was also oily. The oil dropped onto my clothing from the pasta and has stained! Completely disappointed with todays meal and it was far too hot to be complaining and sending back for it to come back out wrong and being there longer than we needed to be. Waste of £65

    Great meal again. Half pizza half pasta is such a good deal and you get plenty of food. Lovely decor and the service were good. Only 2 things I want to add to a very positive overall experience. This is the second time we've visited and the place was far too hot again. You need some windows opened or fans, was after 6:20pm as well so not ideal. (I appreciate there's a heatwave right now but there wasn't on our last visit) Also portion sizes of desserts are pretty small for the prices. Would still recommend and will be returning :)

    Pizza was good but the toppings were sparse, this may be because we ordered off the set lunch menu. Nobody on the table liked the music. The service was good.

    We Brought our Grandaughters for an early evening meal. We did not have to wait long for our table and although it was quite busy, the service was very good. Once ordered, we did not have to wait long for our food and when it arrived it was excellent .The staff were lovely with the girls, making it a very enjoyable experience. We will definitely return.

    I really like this restaurant, but for the first time in 10 years I was a bit disappointed on Tuesday 24th of May. There didn't seem to be any flexibility on adding anything extra into pizza or pasta, considering we would have paid extra for sure for extra chilli or garlic. We found it astonishing how one party 9f 3 were absolutely smashed at 7pm yet they were still being served alcohol hence families around them. A shame as this place is so lovely and staff are great too, I just felt it was a bit robotic on this visit!
