As Pizza restaurants go, Mammas was good without being outstanding. Lovely staff and service was prompt. Decent bottle of wine and all for a fair price. Very quiet on a Tuesday night, so lacking in atmosphere - ok but nothing to warrant a return visit.More

Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
