We visit LP regularly, and normally order their fantastic Pizza. However, we both fancied a change. We were blown away by the burgers, and accompaniments. Fresh, tasty and good portion size. We added the potato skins (to share). Brilliant. We'll be back for more!

We stopped in here without booking, 4 adults and 3 children, and were made very welcome. They weren't phased by us being a large group and served us quickly. We knew it might be a wait for the food as we were in a big group but actually it came out in very good time! I had a scrumptious pizza,... More

I have been going to LP since it opened. Fantastic food, great service and amazing atmosphere; there is something for everyone. We most recently had our Christmas party there and can't fault either the food or the service. It was a lovely evening had by all. See you soon no doubt.

We have been going to LP since it opened, and couldn't fault any aspect of it. The service is exceptional (especially Sophie); the food is incredible (best pizza's in town by a mile-especially the John Lennon! Emma's brownies are also second to none...well worth a try..); and it's always got a buzzy, cosy, friendly atmosphere. My children love going to... More

Can I just point out before my review, that I have been here many times in the past and have previously rated it very highly. We went for dinner week commencing 12th of December, we were one of two tables in the whole restaurant all evening. We made a reservation and the other table was a large Christmas party. We... More

Hi, thanks for your review. It's important for us to learn when we appear to be sloppy in some aspects of our attentive service. Obviously if I had noticed that sort of behaviour I would have admonished the offender, I am sorry that our standards fell short on the night of your visit and I will certainly ask all of... More

Good things first - lovely freshly made pizza with coleslaw, bruschetta, beetroot and feta, plus nice wine. I always like the setting here and the service is always good. BUT why or why let a guy at the bar bring in his Doberman? On a lead but lunged at me when I entered with my daughter and 6 month old... More

Hi, thanks for taking the effort to give us your feedback. I did notice this dog looked a bit menacing and I should have intervened myself, and we'll make sure that this does not happen again. Sorry for any distress to you and your children and we hope to see you again. Thank you. More

I come here for lunch very regularly as they do very nice food! They have a very varied menu which includes pizzas, pasta, baguettes, burgers, wraps and salads to name a few. They have a bar and a club upstairs that opens in the evenings. There is a lovely wood fired oven that they use for their pizzas which are... More

A wood-stone oven cooks up authentic Italian style pizza and pasta. Freshly made salads, sandwiches and snacks are also on the menu. Ingredients are chosen for their quality alone and, where possible, are free-range and generally nice to our planet.
