It's not just the name that's confusing. This place looks good from the outside and has great potential but somehow manages to miss the mark.

It's a bar / pizzeria on Corn Exchange Street, Cambridge, UK which means it's perfectly located if you need some food and drink before a gig at the Corn Exchange. It's set up for this kind of trade - you order and pay at the bar and you get one of those flashy/buzzy alarms to tell you when you need to collect your food from the pizza counter. If you're fairly familiar with stone-baked pizzas, these will leave you feeling underwhelmed although there's nothing seriously wrong with them (except the small ones are too small).

Generally there's a good atmosphere here and it really is convenient if a little pricey. Just go warned that you may find dirty tables, crowds, stroppy (rude) staff and a 'basic' feel to the place despite the image and prices. If you want something special, head elsewhere. If you're a filthy student type, this will probably feel really special. That seems to be what other reviews of this place suggest.

Later in the evening there's more of a music emphasis in the basement bar; didn't stay, can't comment.
