Restaurant has a cool vibe and the food was really nice. The sliders seemed like pretty good value but the wings and sides just seem to stink of money grabbing. £4 for slaw, £6 for 4 wings plus £1 if you want a dip... Kind of puts me off as in my opinion the sides are what should compliment a main not be a burden to it. Staff were nice.

Visited by chance after another establishment let us down and they managed to accommodate our party of 6 on a Saturday night! We were never left waiting for service for food or drink and our waitress helped with any queries we had with the menu. The food was very tasty. All mains were enjoyed and dessert was good too. An enjoyable time had by all

Great restaurant chain in the city centre, went with a group of mates mid week, there was a guy on acoustic guitar.
Food is pretty decent, good choices on the menu and some dishes are ideal for sharing. I’d say the restaurant beats some of the other big beige restaurant chains and I’d go back again.

Great food great service very attentive staff to ensure you have all you need and is all ok once served.. food came quickly and was delicious. The wife and daughter sampled the chicken feet bit strange for this country. Amazed they had them served up in a sauce and sesame seed coating...

Quirky little place, Would definitely recommend. Had way too much food but you couldn't not eat it as was so good. we had the wings, the fried pickles, the sliders and the absurd fries! The only disappointing thing was the 2for1 cocktails you could only have the same on the offer, Good idea for them as made you buy for cocktails.
