We used this restaurant last night and I would recommend. Decor simple crowd buzzing(lots of kids). Main course only of good quality but not of great quality. Diced chicken took from otherwise good ingredients. Service pleasant and value good.

This place has a good menu with lots of sea-food options. After seeing so many delicious pizza's wafting pass the table, we opted for this with chicken wings to start. Both were very good with generous size portions. I would definitely eat here again.

Ate here twice in one week as warm, friendly staff, who love children and excellent menu. Primarily a pizza restaurant, cooked in their fantastic brick oven but they offer a varied and delicious menu if you don’t fancy pizza, delicious! Would definitely go back.

Our Wood Burning Pizza Oven was lit in 1997 and has been churning out pizzas and tasty dinner ever since! The oven is kept at a temperature of 500-550F by burning oak and other hardwoods which are fed through the front by a long handled shovel. This ensures the maximum flavour and a crispiness for every pizza we make. It can hold up to 10 large pizzas at once and cooking time is between 7-10minutes. Be sure to take a look at the oven and pizza making process using our own homemade dough and Brick Oven pizza sauce. Whatever the special occasion - birthday, anniversary, club dinner, office party- The Brick Oven and The Mariner will help make it a memorable one with delicious food, music and a full range of refreshments for children and adults.
