When this was "the pizza ape" This was one of the best pizzas I had ever eaten, Jesus Christ- we came back to find he'd changed premises to a "pizza shack" and become Ape Pizza. It was as if an ape had made it. Bloody dreadful. Undercooked, very little effort in preparation, and the result was a poor one. Nice... More

Ordered by phone New Year's Eve 3 10 inch pizzas. Very helpful, prompt service from the Pizza shack now conveniently located in the grounds of Penstowe manor park. Toppings generous, pizzas delicious and hot. We will be back, thank you !!

My wife and I bought pizza from here. The advertisement of being the best pizza this side of Italy could not be further from the truth! They claim it is wood fired also giving an authentic taste. Well I would prefer a frozen pizza over eating from here any day of the week! Worst pizza I have had!

We ordered a pizza by phone here. We had to wait just over an hour! This is for a takeaway pizza! Really!! The wait was not worth it! This pizza just didn't taste right! Then we were ill for 2 days afterwards! Do not use this Pizza Shack it is dangerous!

Went to the Pizza Shack at Penstowe after having truly awful undercooked, tasteless pizzas from The Stables. Spicy Mexican was the best and the Tennessee was delicious.

Stopped off here after reading online reviews, lived up to the very good reviews. My daughters birthday and she had the choice of evening food. Arrived to very friendly girl taking orders, and the owner/ pizza chef who was also very friendly.
