Authentic Neapolitan Pizza


Our pizzas are made in the traditional Neapolitan style, hand-stretched before being topped with homemade tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella, then cooked in the wood-fired oven - which burns at 450-500 degrees Celsius - for only a few minutes. The end result is a pizza with a thin centre, a crust that is crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, and a fine balance of quality toppings - traits that are typical of an authentic Neapolitan pizza.

Dog Policy


We are a dog-friendly pub and welcome well-behaved dogs on leads in the main bar and seating area, patio and garden, but they are not permitted in the River Room.

When visiting with your dog we ask that owners be sensitive to other guests. If a dog needs food or water please take them outside where water bowls are provided. And ask about our doggy ice cream!
