Mayfair Pizza review

Champagne lifestyle, lemonade budget couldn’t be more apparent fine dining at Mayfair Pizza, where you’ll feel like royalty whilst paying poultry prices.

The atmosphere was warm and well furnished with duo’s of daters and bigger tables, with people making Monday Merriment while our gang of 3 crossed boundaries between the both.

One of our boisterous team instantly made friends with the group of American ladies next door, as the night took on a mystical bent of airport check in drama’s, plus stock market inter libor trading dross.

I filled my face with a Calzone stuffed with tasty cheese and meaty substance, while my less laborious comrade had an equally finely topped pizza cooked to perfection on a thin but well padded base.

The desert menu which includes Christmas Pudding Pizza from this Friday *** was skipped for some Espresso Martini’s as the hullabaloo grew louder and Libor trader one dished out business cards.

@mayfairpizzaco Pizza from $8 Espresso Martini’s $6!!

*** Thanks to @londontheinside for the heads up, you heard it here @hoxtonradio second ***
