I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.
The pizzas are available for dine in or takeaway and over 18s are welcome to take them back to eat in the public bar. Children are welcome in the dining area and can eat free on Tuesday nights. Classic flavours such as Margherita, Italiano and Mushies share the menu with more unusual combinations such as Rosemary & Spud, Chilli Prawn and Maple BBQ Chicken. New and interesting flavour combinations can be found on the specials blackboard.
The pizzas were delicious with a flavourful base that had a great texture. The toppings were fresh and tasty were not oily and did not include too much cheese. Many of the pizzas are suitable for vegetarians and a cheese-free vegan pizza is available as is a gluten-free base for an extra cost.
