The food was out of this world. I would recommend this place anyone whose thinking of going there, stop thinking about it and just do it as it's really worth it. The decoration of the place and overall looks were perfect and the staff were very friendly and helpful as well. We turned up early and they still seated us straight away. I'm really impressed with the place.
Had lunch there on Saturday. Staff were really helpful, and not overly attentive. They talked you through the menu if you wanted, including the sauces. Our waiter recommended the £18 menu options where you choose 2 meat dishes and 2 sides as this was our first visit, on the basis that this is what the restaurant is all about at its core. We went for the ribs, brisket, pulled pork and buffalo wings, with 2 salads, 1 coleslaw and 1 fries. The portions are generous, so I'm glad we didn't go for the option with 3 meats - we would never have finished it all. We both had a pint of the house IPA, which was beautiful - cold, sharp and citrusy. The accompanying picture shows both of our meals. Because we wanted to share, they brought side plates for us so we could split the meals without us asking. Otherwise you eat off the trays with brown paper lining them. I think my only criticism is with the brown paper, which falls apart and tears when the meat juices get absorbed. It would be fine if the paper was only for serving, but not when you are eating off it. The meat was delicious. The brisket was incredibly tender, and full of flavour. The ribs likewise. The pulled pork was good, and the chicken had a nice kick to it. I would probably go for another option of brisket next time instead of the chicken, but I'm not normally a fan of buffalo wings anyway. Couldn't fault our lunch. Everything worked - the staff, the building, and the delicious food. Clean toilets as well. You may struggle to get in though .... we booked 2-3 months ago and yesterday was the first available slot!

Great customer service, very attentive, tasty food, big portions so you're not left feeling hungry. Great evening had by me and my fiancee. Will definitely be back.
I have been eating here for about 8 years; being an African a bit fussy about my food but I can say I have tried everything on the menu from steak to salmon and I can say everything is to die for ... can’t wait to be there again next weekend... wonderful staff + great food ... where I come from we say small but mighty ..
