Lovely atmosphere,great food with lots of choice and very well priced, great selection of beverages and very friendly and helpful staff would definitely recommend you won’t be disappointed .
Awesome food. Lovely building. Friendly attentive staff. Also one of the nicest house beers I have had in a long time. Worth a trip out.
Great welcome, efficient friendly service, reasonable prices, great platter for two with authentic smoked meats, pulled pork, pork ribs, brisket corn dog and in the cob, chilli beans, smoked chicken. Two of our favourites was in the small plates selection...try the macaroni balls and the burnt ends (it’s the tasty bit of the brisket and is to die for) the sauces aren’t too sweet, really balanced and all meat is tender. There isn’t much of a wine list, three bottles to choose from but ours was a nice quaffer. The fries are hot and nicely seasoned, we will try loaded dirty fries next time because there will be a next time. It was great fun!
