The service is great, the atmosphere is relaxed and always busy and the food is superb. Try some of the options on the menu that are new to you - the staff helped us to select lots of new delicious options. ”

Meal Takeaway
“Hand made pizzas that are really good. Call them to order in advance as they only get made as you order so really fresh out of the pizza oven on collection. There is one small table and chairs in the shop and you can eat here and bring in your own drinks/wine if available. I have had guests do this and love it but space can't be guaranteed. ”
