Wow, a seafood pizza that has more seafood than anything else. Probably the best one we have ever had. Great staff , very local, very casual. Dont be put off when looking inside, it’s a bit of a jumble. The food is excellent.

Starters came with mains, solution of staff was to put starters under heater until we had finished mains. Staff not to hand, constantly asking for drinks, food, starters. Lots of staff working though... Food was tasty. However overall poor dinner service.
