Incredible food here, and lovely people. We are regulars and whether its a cheap takeaway or a £60 meal with cocktail pitchers shared, the service is always excellent and the food never fails to deliver. The smoking area is very comfortable.

After reading reviews and laughing at the reply to the 1 star review me and my friend visited today the place was empty due the time we went (14:40) but the staff were very friendly and welcoming they were also quick to point out their...lunch time menu deal which is very good value for money we will definitely be coming back again The only thing that was a bit of a let down was the fact we could not tip you guys on the card machine and due to rona no one carry’s cash no more so we couldn’t give you the extra your service deserved 😔 But defo 10/10 👍🏼More

Ok it can be hard to find decent BBQ in the uk and this place is what Bodeans in London used to be and about what Red's True BBQ in Manchester still is. Service is prompt and friendly, not the biggest menu in terms of...mains but the quality and portion sizes are there. Nice big pieces of brisket which didn't look particularly large when it arrived, but it was one of those times where i wasn't eating it and it didn't seem to get any smaller, was moist with a lovely smoked flavour. Two of our party had the Clocktower burger which if it wasn't for my brisket, some serious food FOMO would have occurred. I think the unsung heroes of this place are the sides, we decoded to take the tapas approach and split multiple sides between us so we could get a bit of everything, would definitely recommend this approach, can honestly say there wasn't a bad one. The bill was reasonable and I wouldn't hesitate to go again.More

This was the 3rd BAD Experience I had at this place , first time was when just opening staff lost my cooler bag with wine that we had bought in . Second time we had been seated outside next to young lads , one of...them was sick everywhere all over seating area and floor outside . Third time was the takeaway I called for a pick up and member of staff said an hour which was fine I called at 18:20 and arrived at 19:10 I let staff know I was here she said couple of minutes, ok 45 min later I again ask what was happening she became very defensive saying that takeaway was not really an option as an event was on . I asked again how long and she said I was swearing at her and being rude the order was also wrong couldn’t make it up . Which was a lie . I would love to speak to someone who actually knows what they are doing or a manager as this place is terrible when the owner is absent . Sort it out get experience staff not some silly little girl who does not know her job!!More

Abbie was a delight, stunning. Delicious food. Very hospitable. Limited menu compared to some of the larger smoke houses but everything was bang on and clearly slow cooked in house. Cocktails were also great.
