Waiting for the starter 1 hour 30 mins, for the main - way more than 3 hours. Garlic bread tasted nothing like garlic bread- more like raw bread and loads of cheese. Pizzas we had were terrible, honestly. Never had such a bad pizza. Dough was raw but at the same time super dry. Chicken was so dry as well. Sauce tasted like nothing. We understand that it’s cheaper on Thursdays, however for 2 people we spent 25£ still, and it was such a waste of time to sit there 3 hours and get the most rubbish food we ever had. Would rather pay normal price somewhere else and get a decent product.

We took advantage of the ‘Two Pizzas for £10’ (Thursday) and found it to be great value for money. The place was packed at 18:30 and the acoustics made conversation a little difficult. However, that’s just a minor gripe and no reflection on the staff, service or overall quality. Wine was very nice and average price for bar/restaurants. Would go again.

Really good service and food only query why when on the cocktail menu it says buy 1 get one the same price free ..were we told we had to have the same drink for this to apply? It's not what it says so just a bit irritating. We'll be back...

I had a wonderful birthday thanks. There were people sat in the booth at first but staff swiftly asked them to leave. Gold diggers are my favourite drink.

Very noisy environment, with music from the bar far too loud to be able to enjoy a meal with friends. Choice of pizza toppings very limited, especially vegetarian options. Cocktails were disappointing. Main positive was the service, which was attentive and prompt.

From the initial booking conversations, right through our cocktail masterclass, the service was impeccable. Our barman, Jordan, was wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. The manager's input also added to the enjoyment of the afternoon. Food and drinks were amazing, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you so much for making my birthday celebrations so enjoyable. I'll definitely be back!

Music was a little loud - couldn’t really hear each other, but totally appreciate that it was a busy Saturday night, have been through the week & have had no problem with noise, it didn’t spoil . Our pizzas were delish & service was great too. :)

The pizza’s were 1st class, think the pasta choices were a bit limited. Maybe a better selection of dips for those scrummy crusts would be good....sweet chilli.....maybe. But overall loved it 😍
