We only had time for a quick visit here this time, having a pizza and beer tea before going to the little cinema just up the road. The pizza is great - simple, freshly made, tasty and just enough without feeling heavy in the tum....More

The place itself is tiny - any more than like 15 people and it feels crowded. The food is excellent from the thin & crispy freshly made pizzas to the tapas. Good range of world beers as well. Great friendly staff made us feel at...More
