Very good pizza and good beer, just don't sit inside. Outside is gorgeous, even on a cold day as there are heaters and comfy seats

Am actually reviewing Stave & Chime which is the gin and cocktail bar that FW have opened upstairs, since Nov 2016, from the main bar.

We had a taster of four different beers and all of them were great. The staff were happy to recommend other beers and we're friendly. Lovely atmosphere.

This place is really worth to go with friends, have a couple of pints during the night and share different pizza flavors while enjoying a good conversation. Simple and good pizzas, great home made beer, nice multi ethical environment...strongly recommend it.
