Amazing choice of pizzas on the menu. We love anchovies and were spoiled for choice. Interesting selection of wines to choose from and a general chill vibe. We would highly recommend. Pet friendly and the manager brought our dogs a fresh water bowl.

We tried this restaurant on the recommendation of the B&B we were staying at. The service was poor. Had to find the waiter when we wanted a second round of drinks. We waited well-over an hour for our food order. My husband especially didn't order...More

Stopped here for lunch by pure chance while meandering in the Midlands. Really liked the rustic feel of the place, and the smell of the wood fired oven. The pizzas were really good when we eventually got them, Italian style with thin crust, but service...More

Real disappointment. We both had a dQuattro Stagione with very little topping and an equally mean Italian salad. One out of five.
