Normal food looks great, loads of great stuff on the menu, but if you need gluten free food then it’s a somewhat depressing experience. Yes you can get a gf bun with a burger in, but you can only get the most boring burger possible....More

Just a boring burger that turns into mush half way through, some McCain fries and tons of attitude from the staff. Great. Just go somewhere else anywhere else and you’ll have a better time. It’s typical hype no Substance.More

The big f**k off strawberry daiquiri can ‘ f**k off’. Despite edgy interior and the attention to detail in decorations, there was a lack of attention when making our drink. Largely believe there was no strawberries... sadly. After being catfished MASSIVELY on social media platforms,...More

I'll be blunt: This is some of the best food I have ever eaten and I work in a Michellin starred restaurant. It may only be burgers, fries and wings but they're the best burgers, fries and wings you will ever taste. Chicken falling off...More

Kooky image is nice but it’s expensive for what is basically a burger joint. Menu isn’t massive and IS just burgers (the ‘stacks’ are still burgers as far as I can see) which average at about £10. The kids menu comes in about the same...More
