It is quite rightly an incredibly busy place so your seating time is limited. If you book later in the evening you’ll have some lovely music while you eat. The food is spectacular, the servers are attentive and polite. The quality of the food is great for the price. Even if the live band isn’t playing, it can be loud. The atmosphere is electric and exciting as people wait for the live music

The food was delicious, served quickly and hot (I was gutted there was no brisket but the Cheese Burger made up for it). The only complaint we have was a problem with the bill which delayed our return to work. We were overcharged quite a bit and it took a few attempts to rectify this, but this was dealt with professionally by staff and the Manager and seems it was an error with the till. It certainly will not put us off visiting again. Would highly recommend.

We went with the kids as we thought they had live music on in the afternoon but unfortunately we were mistaken. We decided to stay anyway as I had heard good things about the food and that was not wrong, OMG the food was amazing!! We had the cornbread and burger spring rolls to start with the pork ribs as a main and we could only eat one rib (doggy bagged the other) there wasn't a children's menu but the girls loved the mac n cheese and the chips to share, was a very generous portion. Best ribs I have ever had :) The staff were wonderful and didn't mind our girls wandering around and loving the campervan. I will definitely be back - thank you xx

They said okay but when arrived table had been given away. Understand it was our fault for being late but they should have told us on the phone we’d have no table - very poor customer service. Won’t return.

The ambience is fun and lively, the staff are fantastically helpful and the food was exactly the sort of thing I like. Service was fast without being intrusive. The restaurant can be quite loud so don't come here for a quiet meal but it had a great atmosphere.

Beef spring rolls and spinach and artichoke dip to start, both amazing, followed by beef rib for 2 and pork ribs which were beautifully tender and succulent. Accompanied by corn ribs, salads and Mac n cheese with brisket and onion in the bottom, delicious! Oh and we had a side order of corn bread with honey butter which was also delicious. And I've never had a ginger mohito before but I'm sure I'll be back for another one sometime. And the staff were all so friendly and helpful, it was a really pleasurable experience, I can't wait to go back.

They said the band had cancelled I woukd have appreciated if they had let me know before hand as I wouldn't have gone. Food was ok. No ambience as just noisy with chatting.

The food was really good, we booked a table in advance and everything was served quite quickly. All the food we had was fresh and piping hot.

We arrived very early and were directed to sit at the bar, all staff were polite, helpful and pleasant. The Cocktails were £5 each and delicious, food was good and the service from Mia faultless. Music was probably the weakest part and still very good. Will definitely go back.

All the staff I spoke to were great, so approachable and helpful - I didn't catch any names so can't mention them personally, but all the staff on the evening of the 10th May deserve recognition :)

You should always wait for everyone to finish and then clear the plates and it felt a bit rushed. Apart from that all good!

However the place is so dark it’s hard to see what you’re eating. It was just so noisy that there’s no point eating here if you want a conversation so be prepared to eat in silence! Waiting staff are lovely if a bit enthusiastic for me and food came almost immediately. There’s an area to go out and smoke and the bathrooms are clean and well kept. Would we go again? Probably not but it was an experience
