Essentially we are a food group, loved the pizza’s, wine, service, music (although just a little loud) & ambience. We are looking to return to Lola’s very soon with a great film to add in this time….. 👍Susie

There is a choice of of inside or outside dining and the outside dining is always my favourite especially during the warmer months of the year.

Food was great but we were allocated a very small table to hold 2 pizzas and a salad plus drinks, we had to ask for a bar stool to balance things on. I will certainly return as it was still an enjoyable evening.

Only criticism is no one told us to order at the bar and so were left sitting for a good 10-15 minutes waiting to be served. It would have been easy for someone to just tell us to order at the bar while seating us. Courtyard was such a good vibe!

Teas were of good quality, sandwiches traditional and delicious, scones were crunchy outside and soft inside but jam and cream could have been more generous (thus the 4 stars), miniature desserts were explosions of colour and flavour. Definitely worth a couple of hours on a leisurely afternoon
