Enjoyable evening; went to sample the new menu. Now includes a variety of smokehouse items; with generous portions and reasonable pricing. Will be back soon!

lovely staff and great atmosphere, we went to the all you can eat pancake event and there were loads of toppings available and it was well organised.

Front of house was attentive. The food was quick and tasted great. Was a quiet evening in the restaurant but didn’t feel as if we were rushed. Will definitely be back.

We really wanted to like this place and was excited about going here but we left rather disappointed. If you are going to open an American 'based' restauraunt when you have a very well known one already within an arms reach, you'd expect it to be one step ahead. The food was Ok, all edible but not as good as as I was hoping (having been to America a number of times and trying a range of smokehouse food, this didn't compare at all) and the portion size is a little mediocre. The whole place is a little confused as to whether it's meant to be a restaurant or a diner. Inside/outside it looks like a restaurant that's decorated with an odd array of posters and artwork but our food was served up in plastic diner style bowls. There was no atmosphere at all and the music didn't really work. The staff were pleasant but won't be going back.

They are a week into a new ‘smokehouse’ menu. We had already looked at the menu and decided to have the sharing tray for 2. When we arrived at 6.30pm (Friday night) we were told that the brisket would not be ready for a few hours (!) but we could still have the sharing tray as they would add extra of the other items to make up for it. Despite being the first people in the restaurant that night (another 2 tables of 2 arrived 10 mins or so after) it was by no means busy but we waited 45 mins for the food to arrive! When it did arrive the tray consisted of 3 chicken legs, 4 bacon and mince ‘bites’, 4 ribs (suggested to be a half rack) 2 halves of a tiny sausage, a tablespoon of coleslaw and about 10 chips!! We had also ordered as extra side of onion rings for £3 (there were 4!). I asked the waiter what had actually replaced the brisket and he said we had had an extra 2 bacon bites and an extra chicken leg!! Considering the wait...the onion rings and ribs were cold, the chicken was smoked but had a really weird smoked taste to it and had tin foil wrapped round the ends?! The best thing on the plate was the sausage which although tasty was the size of a cocktail sausage! I complained to the waiter who after speaking to the chef came back with some fresh onion rings for us but said to replace anything else would take some time!! We has already been in the restaurant an hour and 29 mins by this time so wasn’t prepared to wait any longer. The waiter kindly waivered our food bill so we paid for our drinks and left! I had high hopes for what looked like a decent menu but was very disappointed!

Meal good. Staff helpful. They served our 2 yr old first before we had ordered so that he was occupied. Next they offered him crayons etc. We enjoyed our relaxing time there and their patience. Meal was delicious. Thank you.

A very warm welcome and service. The menu was inviting and impressively catered for our vegan and gluten free needs. The waiter was lovely to chat to about vegan food and he gave us some very helpful tips.

Cracking flavours Blackened Fish was top notch but unfortunately no Beef and the Ribs were a chewy, not falling of the bone and difficult to cut, but we would still recommend and will definitely go again.
