The food was fabulous and plenty of it. Service was great - nothing was too much trouble and the staff were really friendly without being over the top. Highly recommended.
Lovely service and great food very nice experience. Waitress very helpful food was plentiful pleasant atmosphere. We did not have to wait long for the meal to arrive.
Don;t be put off by the decor it might look like a cafe but the food was excellent the service great the place very clean and overall a good night out, my only complaint was the ran out of some of the items on the menu.
excellent restaurant and lovely service. food was amazing and waitress was brilliant. would highly recommend the brisket for mains. very intimate restaurant and not too crowded.
My husband and I had a wonderful evening at Drays Yard Smokehouse, celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary! The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were excellent, very friendly and attentive. Can recommend 100%!
We went in the evening, lovely relaxed style, great food and fantastic service but was really let down as the place was so cold, we would have happily stayed for dessert and coffee but went elsewhere.
We arrived to a very badly lit practically empty restaurant. We hesitated at going in as it looked so uninviting- but I had booked as it was a posted cinema meal and felt bad. It was a Friday night at 8.30 and there was only one other table in there. The waitress that greeted us was very nice and seated us. The lighting was so bad it made us feel like we are in an operating room. They were energy saving bulbs and the light was too white and bright. I know this sound ridiculous but its was seriously unwelcoming an not at all what you expect from a restaurant. We chose from the menu and as were were the only ones there our food came pretty quickly. However the presentation was dreadful. Our 'boneless' chicken wings had been just bumped on a white plate with some blue cheese sauce in a paper pot (the ones you get in McDonalds for your ketchup) and one sad piece of celery. Our burgers arrived and they were enormous. Too big really it was about quantity rather than quality. The chips were seriously average and the meat was overdone and the burgers tasted very strange. Once again the presentation was school dinners. While we were eating the kitchen started shutting down and the waitress put her coat and bag by the door ready to leave. They started to clear our side plates before we had even finished. When were were finally finished (leaving about a 3rd each) our plates were cleared and we were presented with the bill without being asked if we wanted it! No offer of dessert, no "would you like anything else". My husband hadn't even finished his drink. We left the exact money and stood up to leave. We mentioned how rude it was to rush us out and the staff couldn't have been less bothered. The manager who had been sitting in the corner of the restaurant playing on his phone the whole time said nothing. We left and within 5 minutes the lights were off and the waitress left and locked up. it was 9.10pm. On a Friday night. We won't be returning. Food was poor and and the service, atmosphere and overall experience was dreadful.
Brilliant as always. Food so tasty and such a relaxed atmosphere. Always feel like I'm back in the states when I eat here. Can't wait to go again
Unfortunately we never ate here because as soon as we walked in there was an overwhelming smell of toilets, so we left without ordering. Have to say the staff seemed oblivious to the smell and surprised that we didn't want to stay. As we left some people on the table next to us confirmed that the smell was quite bad.
Great food, wonderful atmosphere. Only minor quibble is that the chips didn't quite live up to the same quality as the of rest of the amazing food!
