|On the top deck of the Big Red|
A couple of Saturday's ago I visited the Big Red Pizza Bus in Deptford. I was hearing good things about this place even before I came back to the UK, but it has taken me eighteen months to finally get there.
The Big Red is a deceptive venue. Tucked behind the Birds Nest pub it doesn't look like the most promising location in Deptford and, being frank, the bus looks a little shabby too. However, stepping into the venue it opens up into a large covered courtyard which has been done out with chunky wooden furniture. It was larger and quirkier than the outside would have you believe.
We were offered seats in the courtyard, but it had to be the bus for our first visit and we took a table on the top deck.

The Italiano had the same thin base and was draped with parma ham.
The two girls who run the place were telling me about their plans to set up cookery classes next year. I was doing my best to encourage them.
