This was my first time back since the change. I ordered the st Louis ribs and was really surprised by how much meat was on the bone, never experienced ribs like this before. My partner had a cheeseburger and it was refreshing choosing how the burger was cooked. It was juicy and 10oz so can't fault it. Bottomless Pepsi went... More

We had heard great reviews about this restaurant and looked forward to eating there. Probably our own fault for not enquiring but did not know the general menu had changed. Disappointed with the menu and food served , could have popped into Kentucky fried chicken and had a nicer meal , even though I hate the stuff ! My advice... More

This place is now a smokehouse barbecue diner with the emphasis firmly on meat.I was very keen to try it as I rated the restaurant in it's previous incarnation as one of the best around.I went for lunch with my partner.We both liked the atmosphere with bluesy music which made the virtually empty restaurant seem livelier and the booth type...

We thought we'd give the newly revived Oyster and Chop House a go. Unfortunately, we were left thinking this was very over priced for what it was, the quality of the food was far from good which has resulted in my partner suffering from an upset stomach. The jumbo prawns which were the main perpetrator of this complaint, were way... More

We loved the food at the restaurant before it changed to smokehouse BBQ so we decided to give it a go. We already knew that we would prefer the old style of fine dining but we still expected the food to be prepared and presented to a high standard. Unfortunately we were disappointed as we found the food to be... More

On recommend, we booked a lunch here but whilst my wife and son said they were happy, I wasn't so sure. I ordered a beer which was flat but it was "art house" beer so I wasn't sure whether it was meant to be like that. I selected Pork belly from the menu which was very tender but didn't taste... More

We lovely BBQ and American food and are so pleased this is not... More

Came back to this restaurant after the first experience was a delight. Found the menu much changed with the emphasis now very much on 'smoke house' regular foods rather than the previous seasonal menu of interesting different dishes. Having said the above the menu still offers a great variety of family orientated dishes ranging from simple chicken to pulled pork,... More
