Last night we went to our local pub, the Royal Sovereign on Northwold Road. It's a real locals pub and always has an interesting, although slightly odd, mix of clientele. They serve plenty of beer and larger on tap, have pool tables in the back, a large garden and a lively quiz on a Wednesday night. We opted for bottles of honey beer, Waggle Dance and I discovered that just one of these is enough to get me drunk. Oh dear.
They serve great pizzas freshly made in the open kitchen by the bar. We ordered two to share which were so big we couldn't finish them, for just £7-9 they're excellent value for money. We chose the vegetariana which was loaded with cherry tomatoes, aubergine, courgette, peppers and mushrooms and topped with fresh basil. The vegetables were fresh and there were plenty of them, although I'm not sure if aubergine goes particularly well on pizza? Our second choice was a chili beef, red onion and pepper pizza. It was sadly lacking in chillies, which was a bit disappointing as it could really have done with some spice to liven it up. However, it was still pretty good. The pizza's are infinitely better than those sold in the high street chains, and for the same price they're much bigger and topped with plenty of fresh and tasty ingredients. I won't be going back to Pizza Express anytime soon!
