Visited here today with my elderly grandparents and 8 year old son. The food was amazing, the portions huge and the service excellent. The lady who served us was so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

You can eat in but remember The Brig gets busy at weekends and you may need to book a table. Also, the pizza is soft and chewy. Best avoided if you like thin crust. GREAT taste and fabulous staff.
