When with my daughter for a sunny afternoon treat. Waitress appeared only interested in other customers, insofar as other patrons who arrived after us had the menus brought and orders taken while we were still waiting. I can't comment on the food as we didn't wait.....

We came here the night after our wedding with 20 family and friends. We had a little room in the back just for us and we're able to spend the night here. Food was great, super value and atmosphere was lovely. Will definitely be back.

As part of my wife's birthday celebration I booked us in for a quiet Sunday night meal. She had heared some good things about this place and we were looking forward to a nice evening. The restaurant was about half full and we got seated no problem. But, and that is the crunch of the matter, received NO service thereafter... More

Well now, this really was something else...if you like quirky.....we love quirky. A pizza place in a little stone cottage with a roaring fire in the tiny entrance hall. There's several areas to sit and eat...each a funky wee sunroom type with random furnishings .....twinkly fairy lights around the wee garden area ....but great pizza....take your own wine......a "must do"...
