What an utterly disastrous lunch! My brother recommended this place so we met there for lunch today. Upon arrival we were told that it will take 20 minutes for the pizzas and, although we were in a rush to get back to work, we were ok with that. Albeit the waiter seemed nice at first, it was a different story afterward. After over 40 minutes we chased the order and he told my brother “I told you that the wait will be 35 minutes not 20” – what a rude and completely untrue accusation! Our pizzas finally arrived after over an hour! Separately I have specifically asked for my pizza to be without the spicy salami, however somehow the chef decided to put chillies on it instead???!!! At first I thought that they used the wrong salami, the spicy version, and that the salami was so spicy that even after removing it from the pizza, the spicy juices dripped and made the dough so spicy. It’s only on the last piece that I realised there are tiny red pieces and seeds which would explain why my lips were burning and my eyes were teary. It seems impossible for even the spiciest salami to be like this! I cannot judge if the actual pizza was nice as all I could taste was the burning spiciness. Of course as there is no service upstairs we were unable to complain (or order another drink to put down the fire in my mouth!!!), as we were too much in a rush and had no time to go downstairs. Besides god forbid if we had to wait for a replacement pizza for another hour! I now sit back at my desk with a massive discomfort in my stomach, as I don’t normally eat spicy food at all (and I’m pregnant which makes it all even worse)! I will NOT be back and I certainly do not recommend this place. Such a disappointment as my brother was so keen on this place!

A fairly traditional pub, but then it has very comfy chairs and sofas and really nice and fairly cheap pizza. The service is really friendly. Good atmosphere.

Laid back and delicious. Strikes my personal favorite balance of pizza dough. The pizza bottoms are crisp and the crust slightly springy and chewy.

One of the best pizzas ever! And they change a calzone they have to be vegetarian for me. And they already know me when i get there. Awesome place, nice people, very comfortable and cozy, awesome in the summer!

Honestly the pizza here in fantastic, since I've discovered this gem it's become one of my favourite places to go for a pizza and a pint. The diavola is legitimately spicy and the favours are great. Do yourself a favour a check it out !
