Tried Southern 11 for the first time this evening and very much enjoyed the experience. If you like/love BBQ this is the place for you. Named after the 11 southern US states (all with their different twist on barbecue flavours) the menu has a wide range of meaty dishes and lots of traditional American sides to add.

Positives: We had the tasting platter, although we nearly opted for the all-you-can-eat-Tuesday option, and everything was delicious. Perfectly tender brisket, mouth watering pulled pork and juicy pork belly ribs all with their own BBQ flavour. The onion rings were gargantuan multi-layered mouthfuls, the beans were a nice twist on the usual baked variety and the cornbread had lovely crispy bits in them.

Negatives: The food is served in, what I can only describe as campfire bakeware tin trays - I love this to match the theme but in practise not particularly practical. Ours were not overly warm to start with and as a result the food became cold very quickly. The staff were a mixed bag - one attentive, friendly female - one silent and surly male.

The long and the short is this was a fun, yummy meal in nice surroundings at a reasonable price. I'd recommend it and I will be going again … just hope my tin is warmer next time,

When me and a friend visited this restaurant under a year ago, the food was terrific. I was in love with my meaty combo dish that came with fries, so I was destined to return.

I went in January 2014 at around 5pm on a weeknight to find the place dead. My initial thoughts were that we'd get serviced properly by both front and back of house; sadly I was wrong.

We ordered the fried chicken thighs with mash and gravy and a grilled chicken sandwich. Neither dish were fabulous in comparison to what I had on my first trip.

It's a shame as I loved this place, but I think it may have dipped in quality. I'm unsure whether to go back or not in the future.

Not really room to swing a cat, but nice range of items on menu - and everything we tried was pretty delicious if a little deadly for the old heart. Service was fine, if nothing to write home about, price was ok for what it was. Would go again.

I have never ever been spoken to by a rude arrogant jumped up TWIRP on the restaurant door tonight. He offended me greatly and was so rude and arrogant to me and my partner we were speechless. If I was manager and owner of this restaurant he would be sacked on the spot!
To have member of staff abuse you to your face and pull a face at you and grin! Now he very lucky man.
I would like the manager to reply to this and I will be taking this further!
We walked straight out with my partner in tears
Disgusting behavior!

It is well done, very nice inside, Really nice cocktails but was disappointed by the food, noticed most people having burgers but as I had read the blurb on the web site(impressive) I thought I should try something different, I had a combo deal which was supposed to be a bit of beef, chicken and pulled pork.....it ALL tasted the same, all I could taste was the same smokey flavour...what's the point!
That said I would go again and have cocktails and burgers!
