Friendly, attentive service and delicious gourmet pizza and wine. Highly recommend The Royal for a great meal surrounded by the ambience of the beautifully restored theatre. Bring a jacket or a wrap as it can get chilly inside on cold winter evenings.

Outstanding service, pizzas were delicious, and they made a mean Negroni.
The perfect evening at Lola / Theatre Royal. Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our pizzas at Lola. I had the pumpkin with sage and walnuts, hubby had potato with garlic cream sauce, both were well-cooked, tasty and delicious. I am going to try recreating the pumpkin pizza at home, perhaps with the addition of some bacon pieces. I would have liked more choices on the menu, there were very few meat pizzas. We had tiramisu and chocolate gelato for dessert, both were very nice, though not outstanding. The cafe itself is a little cramped, but quaint and charming.

We were delighted by our experience at Lola. We'd received two recommendations from locals to visit and weren't disappointed. Possibly the best pizza we'd had outside of Italy, great service, and a wonderful buzz.

I would provide 5 stars but there were two small drawbacks - the door in the dining area was opened frequently and it was a very cold night, it made for a not always comfortable environment so do dress warm! Secondly, the cocktail menu was quite small and, as someone with allergies to orange, it was very orange-centric. Happily, the staff were able to make me something 'off the menu' but it wasn't immediately clear that you could order in that way.

Overall, a great evening. Will definitely be back!

A real buzz at Lola's at the Theatre Royal on the night - as expected the three pizzas were as good as always - in fact better even with the new pizza oven just installed. Crispier crust!
Good house wine and the usual friendly service. No complaints!

We chose to eat here prior to a concert at the Theatre Royal. The staff are amazing and pizzas the stuff of late night dreams! We had 3 different ones - the fav was the Patate followed the Gambino....

The Pumpkin Pizza was delicious. Although it was the Mortadella pizza that my daughter ordered that was the standout. Subtle and interesting in it's flavour.

All 4 guests raved about their pizzas! I had the special with the GF base and refused to share as it was so good and I wanted to enjoy every mouthful. The service was also excellent with the staff available and quick to respond. Will definitely be returning.

Everything was lovely except for an over-exuberant waitress who stood by waiting for me to finish my pizza. She had taken my partner's plate but I was still eating. Later she took our glasses away and my partner hadn't finished his drink and had to ask for it back!

Unique experience in an old picture Theatre.
The pizzas were great.
The alcohol was good also but that’s pretty hard to muck up.
