The place was fairly lively as you would expect for a Friday evening. Having had already eaten it was drinks only and beer by the pitcher was priced fairly. Good place.

I have Celiac Disease so eating out can be difficult, I checked the menu online and it says there are plenty of Gluten Free options. Including Chips, Gluten free Pizzas etc. I though great these guys are onto it. But upon arriving I learn all chips (which are labeled GF) are cooked in the same frier as all batter foods so anything out of the frier is out. So I asked about about Pizzas with Gluten Free Bases, same goes for them, all Pizza is cooked in the same oven using flour ad no idea if the sauces have gluten in them.
So in fact the only thing I could order was a salad.
Drinks were slow to come to the table, and the staffs knowledge of the menu was pretty appalling.

I wont be going again, even if I could eat the Pizza I probably wouldn't go back.
The most annoying thing for me is they labeled all the products GF free to try and be trendy, when in fact Im not trying to be trendy, its a medical condition either take it off the menu or sort out the kitchen.

It has still got the damn heavy front door, dark decor including the loos, but the bright keen staff and interesting food are the focus, Large open area but tables & booths don't make it feel that way, tucked in a booth its very cosy. The outdoor enclosed balcony will be buzzing come the warmer weather. Serving American style large pizzas along side a variety of other dishes, it has both family and adult appeal. Surprised at how busy on a Monday night, realised school holiday groups add to the mix. Ordered the carpaccio which was salmon, very tasty and enjoyed the glass jar and lid version of tiramisu. Musicians were setting up, but not to start till later and wee were early diners, the piped music had been vibing away with an eclectic mix, just like the music poster collection decorating the walls. The pizza was very tasty, with a firm but enjoyable base - the test of a good pizza chef. All of our choices were slightly high on the salt taste, but not excessive - a tactic to drive drinks sales maybe ??? as they were being regularly offered. Overall, impressed, it was busy and happy, a pinball machine providing entertainment for the teenages. Look forward to an evening in the setting sun, over another pizza.

I had great hope for this place as had read dive bar/ rock/cool in the run up to it opening. It has cool decor but seems to have missed the mark musically and has ended up as a family/ birthday party themed restaurant but with no large tables. There is no lighting on the stage..this would enhance the band and the posters in that corner as a lot have a luminous quality. A dance area could be good too. Already the live music has dropped to open mic/ karoke/ cover bands. With some response to feedback ( see other reviews) and some guidance it could change its image to something I think was the original idea instead of just being another " kid on the block" or pizza place. Nice chicken burger tho.

The decor and layout was good. And I like it that there was a band. Staff seemed friendly (and easy on the eye), even when we played a few good nature pranks on them. Only real complaints was that I found the pizza nothing to celebrate, and for a Friday night it seemed strangely empty.
