Recommended to me by a friend but afraid we were all disappointed and wished we’d booked elsewhere. We do appreciate you are adapting and doing your best but after being seated we had the rushed dialogue that I know your staff have to repeat each time and were then just left - nobody checked to see if we had an issue with the ordering and no water offered. Then ALL of the food came out st once - fine if we had been told, we wouldn’t have ordered starters, but we weren’t told and neither was the table next to us. All the food at once was totally off putting, you couldn’t enjoy your starter as your main was going cold and without the half hour break you would usually get between courses it was all too much and wasted. When we called the waitress over to feed this back, although she apologised she just said things are changing daily and they are doing their best - I tried to explain people need to be told about the food all coming out at once but she just said really sorry and walked off, she didn’t listen at all. Food was average and pizza tasted like it came from Papa John or similar. Needless to say we won’t be back dnd would not recommend.

Sadly it was a forgettable experience with the ordering system Can’t order starters and then mains without two separate orders and payment Can’t ask for more drinks without going to the app again You might as well have an honesty box and do away with the need for staff !!! Went to other restaurants and actually got service Not great

Had 2 pizzas which were very nice, however I ordered a gluten free pizza but when it arrived it was clearly not gluten free, had I not noticed I would have been in a lot of discomfort for a few days! After a little wait we received the correct gluten free pizza and it was lovely.

The ordering process was ridiculous. But great food as always. Probably won’t be back until a better process is in place.

We weren’t told when we sat down that we couldn’t order starters, we had to starters along with our mains which cluttered up the table . Food was delicious as always .. service was ok.

I ordered the meaty pizza. Although tasty the toppings were sparse and go anywhere near the edge of the base

Amazing food, staff really nice and catering, only down fall would be there was no option to select to sit out side when booking so when we arrived we had to sit inside on a lovely sunny day, everything else was perfect

Your staff were great but drinks were slow to be brought out. We would liked to have ordered more drinks but didn't get the chance...
