There's no other way to describe this place other than amazing! The burgers are fantastic and such good value for money. I had to take mine apart to eat, it was that big!! The place itself is beautiful and creates such a lovely atmosphere..
The staff were really friendly and extremely helpful. 100% returning for a meal very soon!

We did have a good meal of burgers, nachos, steak and chips and 2 of us ordered their rice dish. Unfortunately, the two of us who ordered rice as main meals received a nachos meals in error. We were given the option of waiting approx. 15 mins. for our meal to be cooked (upon which the others in our party would have almost finished eating) or have the nachos free of charge. We decided to have the nachos and eat then - they were light and well cooked with good accompaniments. We were also given drinks on the house to make up for the error and the manager (possibly owner) came over and personally apologised. I still can't really see how two rice meals can be mistaken for nacho orders - but they did all they could to compensate.

We have been to the Custom house a few times now, and we will certainly be returning again. The food seems to get better each time! The atmosphere is relaxed & the staff are happy and attentive. My steak was one the best I've had in a long time! I haven't tried the build-a-burger as of yet, but it's on my list of things to do! Great value for money & highly recommended

I went to Custom house with my boyfriend for dinner, it was packed and we didn't book but they gave us a table that wasn't reserved for an hour. (I'd definitely suggest booking beforehand as it gets very busy) We both had the 'Build your own burger' for £8.95, where you can choose your meat, bun, salad, cheese, topping and sauce. I had a beef burger in a burger bun with tomatoes, gherkins and iceberg lettuce, cheddar cheese, fried onions and tomato relish, with a side of sweet potato fries. It was absolutely delicious! Perfectly cooked burger, oozing with cheese and relish. The ice creams looked lovely as well, with a variety of yummy flavours: Bubble gum, Sticky toffee pudding, Strawberries and cream and Ferrero rocher. I didn't have one as I was stuffed but will definitely be returning very soon to try one! The staff were very friendly and attentive.
