Four of us lunched here recently. Despite the almost empty restaurant, service was slow although professional and cheerful. Pizzas excellent. You need more serving staff!

We were staying in B&B Wickham so ate in the restaurant a couple of nights. Food was nice and staff were very friendly. Conservatory setting was great, a bit later in the year and we'd have loved to have been out in the garden.
