Can beat benson blakes 2 for £10 deal. Nice succulent burgers . Service can be slow and forgetful but the food is good .

“Mmm.”

We came for dinner a few weeks ago & had a burger which was cooked wonderfully, staff was great & they have a excellent range of Gin, which pleased me! Ice cream sundaes were also great!

“Best burgers in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Visited on Wednesday for the two burgers and two chips for 10 pounds deal. We had called ahead for reservations at 7, and even though we showed up late they still had our table reserved and were seated very quickly, great service! I had the Bacon Cheeseburger while my wife had the Cheeseburger. Burgers are large and tasty and served with fresh potato wedges on the side. You can also substitute the normal chips for sweet potato chips. The beer selection is a big plus. The resturaunt has a weekly rotating selection including 4-5 cask ales. Delicious! We will be back for sure.

“Best Burgers Around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Great atmosphere. Best burgers in town, & are huge. Cocktails do seem a little pricey, but they have good deals. Service is hit & miss. Sometimes they seem too slow, sometimes they're perfect.

“Good Value Food although drinks a bit pricey, service could be improved though”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Food is very good and well priced, burgers are a great speciality. Drinks are pricey but premium brands with a great selection of beers. The service was OK but everything seemed to be too much trouble somehow
