This looks unassuming as it is situated above a motorcycle shop. It is a tiny place and often fully booked so plan ahead. However, this is because it is wonderful! A small but really tasty menu - everything you need is right there. The Spaghetti Bolognese is authentic and the pizzas cooked right there to order - real Italian home... More

I have been here a few times now as it is just down the road from me. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries or just gone for good honest homemade pizza! the gentleman who runs this business pretty much does so single handed and apart from the young kids that are the waiting staff he is pretty much a one man...

Went here as a family, very shabby surroundings but staff were very polite and catered for my autistic grandson, he said it should have 5 stars that's a compliment. Pizza arrived very promptly, very authentic and delicious will definitely go back

Had a party at the pizza loft. Hosts were brilliant and really helpful and friendly. Food tasted amazing and was reasonably priced. What would have made it perfect would have been air con. It was sooooooo hot! Went outside and came back in and it was like a wall of heat. Needs better ventilation/air con!!! Otherwise could recommend!

We ate here tonight from lots of great recommendations and our meals were Fabulous. Everything from the atmosphere the pizza to the Espresso were brilliant. Take your own booze too which is great. We'll definitely be back.

Pizza Loft is almost on my doorstep and makes it easy for a simple supper out. The venue is not particularly sophisticated, more simple and rustic. The menu too is very simple with straight forward Italian pizza, some pasta dishes (these are not always written on the menu so make sure you ask what is available) and tiramisu to die... More

Had a terrible experience visiting here for the first time. Small poky inaccessible place with a steep staircase to the eating area. Tables too close together with no room to get in and out without sticking your bum in someone's food. Far too hot and slow table service. We also found the menu limited and expensive. Certainly won't be visiting... More

Overall it was disappointing.. The overall impression was the place could do with a bit of a fresh paint..the waiter was friendly and helpful .. service was quite quick In was busy and I think popular because you can bring you're own alcohol.. most tables were loaded with cans of beer and bottles of wine.. so it makes a cheap...
