    Mediterranean pizza was super tasty. Pizzas are 10" usually with 6 slices. Not a huge beer selection but what they have is excellent 👌

    It's not always on the beer list, but ask for the Wassail. It's hot hard cider, with brandy, nutmeg, etc. Really puts you in the Christmas spirit!

    The hot Wassail cider will put you in the holiday spirit, it's perfection. Drink it outside by the fire pit if you want a magical experience.

    The BBQ chicken pizza was great. wish I could say the same for the service. It took 17 mins to get a waiter. The place is beautiful with lots of potential but the service is definitely lacking.
