A quaint restaurant over a bar that sells the most amazing burgers outside the USA. We have travelled and worked around the world and for a small restaurant it packs a huge menu with great value for money. I would advise that you book as they cater for around 15 and it does get booked easily, though you can eat... More

This was our first visit and we were impressed. My partner had the chilli burger which he really enjoyed, he had extras chips and coleslaw. I had the 4 tapas for £14.50 which was good value the portions were generous and I especially enjoyed the lamb meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce. Great value for money.

Went here for the tapas. Prawns were OK, lemon and garlic chicken was not, meatballs (sweet and sour?) were just wrong. Perhaps the trick is to stick to burgers. For tapas - avoid.

Huge selection of different burgers which makes choosing a problem but well worth the wait. Dogs are also allowed into the bar area while you eat (as... More
