You know what you are getting with this chain and the standards are generally the same. We went at 3pm on a Saturday and there was plenty of tables, the service was good and the dinner was good.

I found the service a bit offish, if I'm honest. Some of the staff looked a bit scruffy and as if they were suffering from a heavy night the previous evening. Pizza was very good. Although, as we did, most people would have a couple...More
