Been several times now, and we've not been disappointed. Bought 2 guests on our last visit and we all enjoyed our meals.

For a Wednesday night the place was packed. Every table was taken so would book if you can but they take walk ins. Pizzas lovely but so are the other main choices. Loved the duck pancakes to start and the lamb harrissa is amazing the flat bread is freshly made! Worth a visit.

I can honestly say I was disappointed, I had heard excellent reviews and decided to have a takeaway pizza. Only for it to be cold and have very little flavour.

Four of us came for a meal, service was very very slow, waited so long for service on drinks we just ended up going to the bar, roughly an hour wait for food for only 2 people's orders to come out, waited another 10 minutes then asked where the other meals were, after 5 minutes or so the other meals...
