    It's been years since iv had a Rusty Oven. I was delighted to get a table. The green goat was delicious. I added haloumi and chorizo (pregnancy notions). It was so so tasty. The throngs of people arriving for their prebooked tables was fantastic. Great food, Great Service, Great atmosphere. Definitely the funkiest spot iv had a pizza so far in my life.

    Great food - AS ALWAYS! The outside cabin was comfortable and cosy. We had a lovely RO waitress and Ethan from Patsy Dans kept the beer flowing. Such good value for money with a wide variety of toppings and THE best sourdough base. Do not miss a trip here. You will always want to go back again…and again…and again
