“Simply Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2013

Very friendly and infomative staff, and comfotable surroundings.

The Rib Steak looked great and was cut at the table to our requirements

Cooked to perfection in a charcoal oven .. honestly the best steak we had ever had by far.

All in all a quality meal and great value.

We can't wait to make another visit

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

I Went for a meal, with my family all of our food was great, i had the slow cooked beef the meat was so tender it just fell apart in your mouth, to compliment the meat, it was cooked with carrots, beans and bacons.. Delicious.
We all had different meals, the burgers were gorgeous real home made food.
Enjoined every min of it, great service, atmosphere was fantastic and the food was beyond my expectations for a sea side resort.will defiantly be returning again soon

“Just Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Birthday meal on the coast. After walking past in summer,& smelling the aroma from the outdoor BBQ we noticed they had opened a new restaurant. We had no idea the food was that good, friendly staff, cosy atmosphere & superb quality food. Cannot fault it, especially on value for money. Terrific

“Best burger you'll get in Great Yarmouth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Fantastic quality food in great decor. Prices were excellent & prices for children's meals are unbeatable! £1 for a home made burger with hand cut chips!

Have read some reviews discussing portion sizes being small, however we thought that they were just right!

One thing I would ask is that is there any chance that you could serve the BBQ beans as a side order since then you I can have both the Chilli burger & the BBQ beans since they were totally delicious.

The steaks look great too & you can order as much or as little as you like as you only pay for weight of steak. The Rib Steak looked fantastic!

Will definitely be coming back!

Thanks for the great review, we will eventually add a sides section to help with more selection.
We have made the effort to invest in prime local and freshly minced free range & organic steak in our burgers along with handmade chips, bun, sauces and condiments not using ready made & frozen products!

“Great find in GY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

Visited for lunch today, great place for food. The pub itself has been renovated and the restaurant is out the back. Waiter (I think the owner too) was very friendly and the burgers were fab. Next time will try a steak as they were on display and looked great.

Took our little boy, kids meal only £1 with a adult meal so great value. He was very pleased to be given a ice lolly after his meal too.

Overall great, hope this place brings some people to Gt Yarmouth. Followed it with coffee and cake at Hooray Henry's which is another good find.
