Food was very tasty and arrived in good time. Recommend the vegan pizza it was delicious and the lemoncello spritz. The Nutella one turned out to be a huge chocolate pizza- definitely a sharer! Staff were very friendly and attentive despite being short staffed.

First visit for me and have to say lovely surroundings and really nice staff. Very helpful indeed when we got confused with the menu choices.
2 of had Risotto which was fine
2 had pizzas which sadly were not very hot. Strange because there were only a couple of other diners .
To his credit the young man offered to take them back but we politely refused.
May try a return visit.

Excellent food. Staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive. We were in a rush, so the lady serving us ensured the food was prepared promptly. I also asked her in confidence if my pregnant wife's pizza could be cooked a bit longer as she has been struggling with sickness, particularly with food that is lightly cooked. This was no problem for this member of staff and she was very discrete. I didn't catch her name, but she had long, dark hair and was possibly a manageress. Date was Sunday 28th November, approx. 3pm. Please pass on a thanks to her and the cooks.

As a vegan and with someone who has a lot of food intolerances (no milk, nuts, gluten or spices) the staff couldn’t do enough for us advising and helping with our selection. Plenty to choose from for both of us, in fact it became difficult to choose.
Food turned up promptly (even though my friends meal had to be cooked from scratch( was very tasty and piping hot. Couldn’t fault service, very attentive but not overly. Let us get in and enjoy our meal but there when needed.
Will def be returning because as vegan it’s nice to have choice!!

It was Weds early lunchtime so it was quiet - but we were meeting for a chat so it suited us. And it didnt affect the quality of service or the food, both of which were really good. have eaten at one of their other restaurants and can confirm the consistent quality and value for money.

Simply fantastic. The food and service were both excellent and it was good value for money including drinks. The only improvement would be seat cushions as the seats are a bit uncomfortable after a while ;)

What a lovely experience coming here. The restaurant is very spacious so you don't feel as though everyone is on top of you. The food was excellent and the service was the same, we shared the mixed starter which included a succulent flatbread. The pizzas were very tasty and were cooked to perfection. Sadly no room for sweet but we greatly enjoyed the white wine which was on offer at a very reasonable price.
I would certainly suggest you give the place a try, we loved the meal and felt very well looked after.

Nice and quiet for my first time dining out since Covid-19 hit in March 2020. I felt very safe. The waiter was very nice and pleasant, everything was thoroughly cleaned after another couple left. The food was good as always. Highly recommend.

Everything about this place was first class. Cannot find fault in anything. The food is something to die for. We had the starter, main and dessert. Totally stuffed and all at a very reasonable price. Will definitely be going again. So much better than the other well known pizza ace.

Really nice food and good service. Disappointed that the place was nearly empty st 7pm on a Saturday evening.
Have seen on Facebook that dogs are going to allowed into the restaurants. Do not agree with this at all and may put us off eating here again.

Couldn’t understand why an 11% service charge was not optional !!! And what it was actually charged for. Also on the bill it states “service charge is for parties of 1 or more” so surely that’s everyone. Regards

Overall, a nice local place to come and eat. It gives you something different from Pizza Express and Hut with its buffalo sauce in particular.
Was a bit quiet when we came to eat on a Friday night but things are still getting back to normal. Good to see the woodfire oven in action from the dining area. Definitely worth a visit.

Decent enough although the “very Hot” pizza was hardly spicy at all which was disappointing. The waitress managed to spill a bowl of olive oil on table and nearly covered me in it! Then tried to mop it up with one napkin I gave up told her to get more and ended up cleaning it myself. Didn’t see her again , the manager appeared was really nice gave a couple of free drinks and the rest of the meal was good, so I’ll probably give it another chance.

Nicest pizza I've had in a long time. Only downside was the 11% service charge no matter how many people were dining. I like to choose how much tip I leave (which on this occasion would have been more than the 11% if it wasn't already added to the bill)

Didn’t start well when they couldn’t find our booking through open table. Starters were ok but pizzas were pretty grim, Luke warm, too salty and overpriced. Dip was brought to the table as we were finishing our food which was a bit weird. I mentioned that it was a birthday celebration on the booking through open table but this wasn’t recognised in any way. The icing on the cake was being charged a tenner service charge, the irony. I would have normally brought all these shortcomings to someone’s attention at the time, but I didn’t want to spoil the evening for my daughter. I would never eat here again or recommend it to anyone. We like to eat out a lot but this was a terrible experience.

Lovely restaurant with good atmosphere and great food. Lots of choice on the menu and everything is freshly made and pizzas are cooked in the stone oven at the back of the restaurant. All pizzas are avaliable in gluten free and these bases are one of the best gluten free bases we know. You can even collect the bases to take home. Service was excellent. Prices slightly higher than typical chain restaurants but worth the extra few £'s.

Lovely service and yummy pizza. The garlic bread is the size of the pizza so don't over fill on the starter. Although they do box up leftovers which is great too.
