Great pizzas and really lovely staff. Good selection of alcohols. They have live music on Friday/Saturday nights. They arranged a cake for my sister's birthday which was lovely. We really really enjoy coming here. :)

Hello sorry for the slow reply. They stop serving food at 5pm on a Sunday. some of the "chain" pubs such asrthe Dog and Duck at nearby Shardlow still serve on a Sunday evening. Hope this helps.
