Went for a burger with pulled pork and Swiss cheese, tasted perfect... Good crust on the burger, super flavourful and moist pulled pork covered in gooey cheese. Came with fries too. Best offering of this food in the area, blew all the Exeter places out...More

The food is fantastic: locally sourced, cooked to perfection (my pulled pork sandwich was the second best I've ever had). The starter was a little underwhelming for the price, but that is my only complaint. Unfortunately I couldn't get a table tonight, but I look...More

Surroundings rustic. Food absolutely sublime. Friendly staff. Can eat cheaper elsewhere, but they serve "real" meat, no fillers/additives. Highly recommend!More

Description
Relaxed and informal. Some communal dining and some smaller tables. We are a butcher using classic methods from British and European sales to produce our own cured meats. We also take influences from American BBQ to produce well cooked smoked meats. We make everything possible ourselves. We make Pastrami for the Reubens, Franks for the dogs. We are very pleased with our award winning burgers. Be sure to ask what the secret is to a great burger (by the way there is no secret just use great dry aged Devon beef with salt and pepper).
