Wasn’t offered desert and told to hurry up as the next booking was arriving. They did manage to find them another table but everything felt rushed.

Unfortunately, our party of 4 were seated right by the back door where staff go in and out to the garden area. The weather was not great so each time the door was opened we were blasted by cold wind!

                                                            I guess what made it was the beautiful views over the fields on a beautiful sunny day. It has a nice terrace with a few trees for the shade and a friendly and efficient staff. The ricotta and spinach pizza was delicious. The « homemade » tiramisu was disappointing. One advice: arrive early as the best tables outside get taken very quickly.

The staff went the extra mile, took drink orders from the table which they don’t do when your outside, it embarrassed the hell out of me but broke the ice to the evening. Cheers!!

                                                            I love this place. The staff are friendly and efficient and on the whole the food is good. It seems to be quite popular with large parties so can be a bit noisy. Beautiful views across open country from the patio/ garden area. It’s also good value for money.

The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be returning.

                                                            Food & service were wonderful, my only disappointment was the noise level, conversation was very difficult we couldn’t hear each other speak.

                                                            First time dining here we’ve had friends dine here. For everyday day dining it was nice generous portions and we are impressed that so much is made in house the pizza dough is superb and better value than some of the chains. Nice table by window friendly staff we will come back we did not expect it to be so busy mid week so wise to book it’s so close to radlett too but I did not know it was there
