To start off with this place may be small but it's very much homely and inviting. The food is not only worth the price but is original and very tasty! It's a great place for a catch up or even a small party. I will definitely be returning with all my friends because it's great value for what you get which is just what Paignton needs!

I have been a couple of times in the evening, and love the friendly atmosphere and good quality food that is very reasonably priced. Being a BYO is also a plus in my opinion. The only down side is that when busy you may have to wait a while for the whole table to be served as there are only two staff, but this did not bother me or the other people on my table.

Came here a few months ago and had enjoyed the good, so came again!
Not disappointed.
Take your own wine or have soft drinks.
The food is the real McCoy. We had the best calzones we'd had for a long time, they were full of filling with a great flavour.
Ordered side salads too which were lovely and fresh.
Sadly no room for dessert. Maybe next time.
