We visited last night for the second time! The burgers are easily the best we’ve ever tasted - so juicy! I’m looking forward to trying more of the menu, apparently the ribs are amazing. The waitress is very friendly, there’s a lovely laid back atmosphere.

The good was superb! The halloumi burger was excellent and the mad cow burgers looked amazing. The music was very good. The only down side was it was so cold in there! But it certainly wouldn't stop us going back. Lovely place.
