Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Popular Pizza Posto, just across the road from the Festival Theatre, is one of a handful of new eateries focusing on value for money with pared-down menus. There are just ten pizzas, ranging in price from around a fiver to under a tenner, all made Neapolitan-style with slow-rising multi-cereal dough. Expect a soft bubbly base with thick crusts and toppings such as ham and mushroom, which although a little less flavoursome than the Italian salami-topped option, comes with big globs of mozzarella and plenty of long-stemmed mushrooms. If you’re looking for more than just pizza, there’s a handful of starters, sides and salads. The antipasto with mozzarella, ham and cured meat and roast veg is generous and a focaccia garlic bread is pretty good. Desserts include a gooey chocolate cheesecake.
