Staff were very friendly, and it has the feel of a proud business that supports local distributors. Seating is on benches and tables, with some booths, giving more informal feel to the place, which was perfect for our lunch. High chair was available for our...More

I wasn't particularly impressed. The building is interesting as I imagine it was an old Topsham warehouse or similar at one time. The menu emphasises meat based meals, often accompanied by chips. I was with my family and they didn't think the burgers were particularly...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).
