There are no silly time restrictions, and once you have a table you can stay as long as you like while we will shower you in beer and pizza until your heart’s content.

Hand-Stretched Pizza

We make our famous ‘beer dough’ fresh every morning using the finest authentic Italian ingredients, and a good glut of beer straight from the tap.

The Dough Process

Mixing: We mix 00 Caputo Flour, Salt, Water & Beer before adding primed fresh yeast. The beer gives the pizza an extra crispy base and distinct leopard spots.

Proving: Our dough is proved once at room temperature for an hour, before being portioned up, balled and cold proved once more for 24hrs. This makes the crust extra fluffy.

Stretching: The dough is hand-stretched to order, topped with the freshest ingredients from Grainger Market, and stone baked in our pizza oven at around 360 degrees celsius.

The Heart Desires 6.5%
Sour - Fruited
Thornbridge Brewery
This beer is part of a project we have been working on at the brewery for a few years now. We wanted to create a modern sour ale aged in barrels, with the same complexity and depth of flavour which our favourite sours from the USA offer. This beer started life as a simple blonde ale with low bitterness and was fermented with our house yeast. We then aged this in Burgundy barrels with the fruit for well over a year. Adding cultures of Brettanomyces, Pedicoccus and Lactobacillus at set points let us sour the beer gradually over many months and give layers of flavour that can only be developed over time. The fruit aroma and flavours compliment the sharp sourness which subsides for more malt and yeast character to come through. The resulting beer is a clean, zingy and intense blend of fruity tartness with intimations of crisp Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

Trappistes Rochefort 8 9.2%
Belgian Strong Dark Ale
Abbaye Notre-Dame de Saint-Rémy
Originally called "Spécial," Rochefort 8 dates to the mid-1950s. The name comes from the original gravity in "Belgian degrees." Deep brown color; the flavor is vigorous and complex, with firm body to support the strength. The aroma has elusive notes of fresh fruit, spice, leather, and figs. ABV 9.2 IBU 22

Chimay Cinq Cents (White) 8.0%
Belgian Tripel
Bières de Chimay
Named Cinq Cents in 75 cl (25.4 fl.oz.) bottles, this beer, with its typical golden color, slightly hazy appearance and fine head, is especially characterized by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast. It was first brewed by the monks of Chimay at Scourmont Abbey in 1966. Above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma.

Orval 6.2%
Pale Ale - Belgian
Brasserie d'Orval
NOTE: The ABV-value of this beer varies, in the United States 6.9% is used. The Orval’s brewery produces only one beer to sell, a beer with a high fermentation that continues in the bottle. It is 6.2% ABV. This beer is brewed exclusively from spring water, barley malt, hop cones, candy sugar, and yeast. The aroma and the fine taste are due more to the hop cones and the yeast than to the malt that is used. What’s special about Orval’s beer is that hops are added at two different stages of the production process. First, in the brewing room, a large quantity of very fine hops are added – this produces the famous bitter taste and is the reason why the beer keeps for a longer period of time. Later, in the storage cellars, hops are once again added. This is the so-called British “dry hopping,” which produces the delightful aroma that completely enraptures even the most carefully forewarned taster. In the tasting room, Orval’s beer and cheese make a really good pair: the unique shape of the bottle and the glass, the design of the label, the coasters and other publicity materials – it’s all a legacy from the early 1930’s.
