Been here many times, sometimes its difficult to get a seat as it is so popular. So far have never been dissapointed as the food has interesting combinations and the pizza’s are tasty. Has a great relaxed atmosphere too.

The hummus here is literally some of the best I've tasted! Start with that then on to their massive pizzas for main. Good selection of beer too. Walk in only so sometimes it's hard to get a table.
