The place was super cool and the pizzas were totally fantastic as were the drinks on offer. Several margaritas and other cocktails along with pale ales and lagers were imbibed by all. A truly successful outing. Perhaps some of the slashed cushioned seating could have been tidied up … I also appreciate the fact that the ladies’ loo cubicles were a decent size

Aces is always a great spot for a chilled evening. The pizza is amazing. My Italian housemate rates it very highly. The staff are always friendly and chilled. Only thing is they need more options for cider drinkers.

Mainly a great pub. Pizzas are delicious. Good choice of drinks. Only thing that lets it down is the unfriendliness of the staff, bordering on rudeness.

1st visit since lockdown. Not much has changed, apart from the table service which is better than queueing at the bar. Everything very well organised & clean. Felt safe.
