We visited Big Nanny's on Saturday night as we fancied some authentic Caribbean food for my husband’s birthday, and we got exactly that. The atmosphere in the restaurant is wonderful and relaxing, the staff is efficient and attentive, but nothing could beat the quality of the food, it was incredible.

Amongst our group of 5 we had a selection of most of the dishes on the menu to try amongst us, with the Oxtail dish and the Goat patties coming out a firm favourite, and the dumplings really were to die for. The food was fresh, flavoursome and plentiful.

The rum cocktails are exquisite, being real cocktail snobs we were wary at first, but our first taste of our first rum punch and we were hooked, our waiter even made us a 'rum surprise' towards the end of the night that was fab, you often have such poor cocktails with little thought, skill and alcohol in them in restaurants, but that's NOT the case at big nannies they are very moreish......

Then we have a lovely visit to our table from big nanny herself and her daughter who had remembered it was my husband’s birthday from when we made the booking, and came out to organise a free birthday cocktail which was a lovely personal touch.

We were there without groupon vouchers, and found the food and drinks great value for money.

Please don't take any notice of any poor reviews on here, I'm sure everyone else in the restaurant had an equally superb night and we are looking forward to our return trip.

We first visited here on a Groupon deal. We loved it so much that we have since been back without a voucher and have another trip booked, this time with our parents for birthday celebrations. The most outstanding thing about Big Nannys is the staff. They are so friendly, cheerful and accommodating which makes it a real pleasure to visit hence our third visit coming up! Yes the food can take a while but we are always pleased about this because we enjoy being there and it gives us more time to drink the lovely cocktails! The food is gorgeous, the curried goat is so succulent and the Boozy Pineapple dessert is heaven!
If you are in a rush and want fast food served with a frown, don't go here. If you want a relaxed evening sipping cocktails, eating mouth watering food in the company of staff who genuinely care, make a booking!

I almost want to keep it quiet in case it gets so busy you can't get a table but what a great night we had. The staff are just lovely, the food is fabulous, portions huge, atmosphere is laid back. The cocktails are out of this world as well. Super impressed! We had a Groupon but we will return for certain and happily pay full price.

Wife booked this via Groupon. Took some friends that had never experienced Carribean food, and they thoroughly enjoyed their choices. Had jerk chicken, curried goat and hard food. Would not hesitate in going back.

We came here for our 10th wedding anniversary back in September 2012 and we were very impressed! Such a lovely comfortable place. Great food, atmosphere, staff and not to mention cocktails! We had a lovely evening hence booking a table for 13 people for my husband's 40th yesterday. Everything was perfect and every one of our guest's was as happy as we were. Music playing, great service, fantastic food, i wouldn't have changed anything. Thank you to all the staff at Big Nannys for making my hubby's 40th Birthday so special. See you soon x Highly recommended
