As always, a great dining experience. The meat, cooked superbly and tender enough that a person without teeth could chew through them.
Will definitely be back, keep up the good work

Absolutely amazing, bit slower than most places with drinks but I think it’s not normally table service (bars closed due to covid-restrictions) would 100% return many many times my mouth is watering at the thought of it

Our favourite local! Was great to be back after lockdown to enjoy a meal and some drinks. Food is mouth-wateringly good, must tries are the pork belly, kransky and Korean fried chicken (if on the specials board).

We had takeaway a few times during lockdown but it was so good to be back and eating in!

Highly recommend!

Food was amazing, especially the fried chicken. Great red ale beer. Service was a tad lacking as some items were missed off our order, but it was their first night open after restrictions. Will definitely go back.

Disappointed with the food - ribs while very tasty were very dry & the jalopena poppers were not in fact these!! They were a take on spring rolls. Jalopena poppers are filled jalopenas!!! Not a jalopena in sight ☹️ ..... misleading & wouldn’t have ordered if we’d known. Ok to have a quick but noisy meal here - pretty much on value for money

Burgers were average, could get them anywhere, salad was was from the 70s with store bought dressing and chips ok. Ribs were the highlight but not enough to go back.

Our first visit here and it was brilliant. We went on Friday night as we heard it was kids eat free and we were not disappointed. Had a sharing board together and we couldn't eat it all so the staff offered a takeaway box which wad brilliant after paying a fair bit for just 2 adults. The meat was amazing. Mac cheese was a huge hit for the toddler too
