Location and contact

Located 5 minutes from the town centre as well as the train station you'll find us! Our love comes in threes! Think light crispy artisan pizza (cooked in our amazing wood-fired oven), warming one-pots of comfort food (bubbling mac n cheese anyone?) and pints of beer (crafted at our Grandfathers Brewery).
US$11 - US$20

Called in for pizza without making a reservation on a Saturday night - although it was really busy the staff managed to find us a table after only a short wait and the service was over and above what you’d expect at a local pub....More

Came in on Friday with a group of friends for drinks on the way back from the station, really friendly bar staff and such a good atmosphere, like the fact it’s not to loud so we could actually catch up properly. We hadn’t planned to...More

Excellent gluten free pizza, which isn't easy. Cross contamination could be a risk, as with all pizza ovens. Staff were friendly and efficient, and offered a box for leftovers without prompting. Fun interior and decor. Not so keen on the tin trays - what's wrong...More

Was taken here on the weekend for food after a few beers in the town. Sharers were very nice and was the lasagne, can't wait to try the pizza another time! Excellent choice of beers too.

We popped in on a rainy night and ordered pizza. You can't go wrong with a place that has a open fire pizza oven. There was plenty of other items on the menu to choose, but we stuck with pizza.

We were excited to visit the RA for our anniversary. Sadly our meal was disastrous on every level: its only success was in delivering more money to a pub that clearly puts profit before all.
