Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very good service, lovely staff, but felt the food was nice, but definitely had better elsewhere. A great place to try if you are new to the low n slow bbq food. I personally wouldn't be rushing back. But worth a try if you are...new to the scene.More

I have been meeting friends here since it opened. Always had good food and service. Today I asked for a little vinegar to go with my fries. A British tradition - salt and vinegar on chips. I was charged an additional dollar for the vinegar...on the bill. Really doesn’t seem right to me. Very disappointing after being a loyal customer for such a long time. Small things like this can lose a restaurant business 😞More

5 of us for dinner at 6:30pm on a Wednesday night. The place was pretty busy, seated quickly and the waitress timed the order taking so well we got both the drinks and mains sorted at the same time. Drinks turned up quickly and the...food also surprising quick as well - certainly faster than expected. 3 burgers and 2 x briskets, a starter of salt and pepper squid a couple of large wines, a couple of beers (tap) and 1 bottle + L & P and all for $219. At $22 for a burger and some beautiful chips with I think some chicken salt made for a great meal and hit the spot perfectly. Had a chat to the barman who was a really engaging and helpful young guy. All in all nothing to fault and as a local place we will definitely be back - keep up the good work!More

Good value for money. My son likes their hot chocolate. But I haven't tried the food here yet. So I can't say that much. But they were very kind to my son.
