If you love your BBQ, you’ll love this place. My friends and I shared the meat platter and enjoyed some of the finest ribs, pulled pork and smoked chicken I’ve ever tasted. I’m often disappointed when I visit BBQ restaurants in the UK (the Americans...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).
