"Then the pizza bianca with confit lamb neck, ras el hanout, yoghurt and mint. Let me see, I’ll try to remember … Oh yes, it was the best pizza I’ve ever had. Amazing dough: salty, nutty, chewy … You hardly needed the lush rich meat and dairy toppings. Astonishing. Stand-out. Worth the trip alone. Yadder yadder." READ REVIEW

"We gobbled up a confit lamb-neck pizza with spiced aubergine before sharing some grilled Cumbrian rib-eye, which arrived with tarragon cracked potatoes and an excellent side of fresh cavolo nero. There’s a salted caramel gelato on the dessert menu that they’ll bring you in a little cone. This is outstanding." READ REVIEW
