Tucked away we weren't quite sure whether we were at the right place but a friendly welcome assured us we were.
The dining room is bright and airy and it's a pleasant place to enjoy breakfast, lunch diner or coffee. It wasn't the busiest but then it was a Tuesday evening and I anticipate, given its location it probably fares better with the lunchtime and coffee trade.
We found the wait staff friendly and helpful and enjoyed the flat caps and breeches uniform reminding us British girls of home!
Crispy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside, they were barely firm enough to hold. With a salty coating and the heady mayo dip they warmed the cockles on a cold night. I tend to find polenta chips a bit bland and it's all about the texture and the dip and these were pretty decent on both fronts with the crusty outside being the highlight. A slightly firmer centre would have been better I think just to give it a bit of substance.
Verdicts were mixed. We enjoyed the crispy pizza base which verged on being on the dry rather than greasy side and the concensus we prefered that over oily pizza. The tomato base was good - tangy and sweet. The downsides were that the goats cheese on the pumpkin pizza was overly strong and unpleasant. The scamorza was barely there. I'd have preferred more fior di latte on mine.
Pizzas were served on a piece of greaseproof paper and then on a plate and we found the piece of paper annoying as cutting the pizza ripped the paper.
I declared the steamed honey & hazelnut pudding, honeycomb and lemon curd ice-cream a delight. The pudding was light with sweet finish and toasty fragrance from the hazelnut. The lemon curd ice cream was like being kissed gently by a lemon fairy - just beautiful.
Along with a drink, our three course meal came to about $20 per person which was such a bargain. Even without the 30% discount, the pizzas are less than $20 which in spite of our mixed responses are very reasonably priced.
