    Excellent food and service, one of the best pizzas I have eaten. Magdalena who was serving us, was great and took care of us and kids very well. Thank you ! Feel bad that I did not have any cash left over for the tip, certainly going to go back with double the tip next time :-)

    This was a celebration of my grandson and his girlfriend gaining places at university (after much hard work). There were five of us in the party and the evening was great. I had ordered a bottle of champagne to be served on our arrival and everything was in hand. Our waiter was attentive and very professional and every request was dealt with very quickly. The food was lovely and very varied and none of us left hungry!!

    The meal I had was quite nice, it was a chicken dish with a creamy mushroom sauce served with mini roast potatoes and my husband ordered the same dish. The chicken was cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the same dish and he enjoyed his too. I also really enjoyed the Tiramisu that I had for dessert. However I was disappointed because I was going to choose the Carbonara pasta which is always a favourite of mine and I saw from the menu that it had leeks in it. Why! A classic dish like this should not be messed around with. Traditional recipes are the best. Also the chef was a bit heavy handed with the herbs in the main course. Service was fine at the start but was slow near the end when we asked for the bill we waited about five minutes and then we gave up and had to go and ask the manager to give us the bill.

    Nice and relaxed, great atmosphere and food. Disappointed though as Gourmet website said I could use the gourmet card on a bank holiday but restaurant said I couldn't as don't except it on a bank holiday
