“Great Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2009

Dined mid week with 6 adults and 7 kids. Ray was great, excellent pizza - good flavours and ample topping.
Great to see a decent pizza is still available, an art that has been overly commercialised by the big 3.

“Great pizza with real taste made the traditional way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2009

So welcoming, the owner "Ray" extended a hand of welcome (yes a handshake) and was like he was bringing me into his home. Had a chicken pizza with cranberry. Was cooked in this huge wood fire pizza oven and was cooked so quickly. Travelling alone so sat at the bar and "Ray" kept my glass full of beer and my tummy full. Pizza was delicious and sitting at the bar aloud me to talk to other fellow lone travellers. Great fun place with local art on the walls. Cosy and good value, am glad I drove past Hells and ate at the "Hotrock".
