This place really does tick all the boxes. Fabulous food, great décor, good music and superb value. Add in the central location and outdoor seating and it's hard to see how it could be improved. Bravo Smoak.

I went there three times with a groupon voucher. For just £12 (£6 each person), we ate amazing burgers. I do recommend it. Chicken burger had an amazing spiced breaded layer.

SMOAK BBQ serve up the finest in Texan-style, slow-smoked BBQ brisket, ribs, pulled pork, tacos and much more. Here at SMOAK BBQ all the meat we serve is carefully sourced from local farms and dry rubbed or brined overnight before we marinate, then sous vide or smoke over hard woods for up to 14hrs. Whenever possible we try to make all our sauces and pickles from scratch. Ensuring the clean fresh SMOAK taste that balances with our succulent meats and smoaked vegetables.
