Good food with great service. Great atmosphere, but loud so don’t go there if you want a relax evening and chat :)

Love this place, and it’s Shoreditch sister restaurant. Great food, always busy without being stupidly rammed, and generally filled with people simply having a good time. Food is generous and tasty - highly recommended.

Fantastic service - very well staffed and efficient.
Food was excellent - Beef Brisket cooked perfectly with a great taste.
Lively venue with lovely atmosphere, not the place to go for a quiet meal but we knew that.
We'll be back to try the burgers and cocktails!

The drinks are amazing and the staff are endlessly accommodating. I wish the menu was more varied, its all fried foods so a salad option wouldnt go amiss. But they make off menu drinks if you ask them! And theyre delicious.

Had a great time with my family. It was my sons birthday and they did everything to make sure he had a great birthday. All the staff seemed really genuine in their attempts to make us all have a great time.

Food was great and reasonably priced. Service was hit and miss. I did have to ask 3 different waiters before I got a dessert menu. However, my child spilt my drink almost immediately after I bought it and they made me a new one free of charge so that’s a big win!

We arrived half an hour early before our booking and were told that the table was free so we were shown to our table.
Menu's were handed to us and drinks and starters were taken promptly.
Service was great considering how busy it was
Definitely recommend the buffalo wings.

We enjoyed our post wedding (no sleep and slightly sore heads!) brunch and the food was just what we needed - wholesome, tasty and with sufficient quantities. Most of us had a full breakfast (the blues or vegan version) but some had the crab and egg option which was popular too.

The man on the door was friendly and professional and was flexible with where we wanted to sit. The only criticism would be the length of time we had to wait for our hot drinks from the bar area.

Absolutely exceptional! Forgot how amazing this place was. Food was delicious. My partner even said “This is the best meal I’ve had this year!” - and he’s a picky eater!
Thank you Brixton Blues kitchen.

It is a nice place, staff very friendly but quite noisey and also very busy. We had to leave our table at a certain time for another lot of diners to be seated. It was a bit packed and no room at the bar so we left after our meal and went to another venue which was a little quieter and easier on the ears. Food was great here though and some good music played, just a shame it was packed out. Cocktails are quite expensive though, £10 for a small glass.

Went on a Wednesday for their live music and £5 cocktails. Ambience was amazing, the decor is stunning and the service was very friendly. It does get very busy, but the food arrived quickly and drinks were worth the wait!
Would recommend as the perfect place to catch up with friends

Great food, great service, great cleanliness, everything was 100%.

My only suggestion would be the music, would be fun to have some rnb reggae, hip hop…

Shardae ( sorry not sure how to spell it) is an amazing waitress, she is polite friendly helpful and fun.

I will definitely come back.

We had a wonderful server who went to extra trouble to ensure my partner and I had a nice time on our four year anniversary! The food was incredible and I would definitely recommend the vegan milkshake and buttermilk pancakes as both blew my mind.

Pros
I was greeted and seated perfectly, not hanging around which I really appreciated.
Youthful bubbly servers, and delicious hot food .
Cocktail not bad, a lot of ice but that has become a norm in such venues.
Two hours allowed at booth which was adequate for my birthday celebrations.
CONS
No one explained it was table service, when I was seated.

Waitress didn't introduce herself and I was sat looking around at the start.

One of my guests asked for her starter of wings and side of chips to come as her main and this didn't happen.

So her wings came as a starter and she sat waiting for her fries...then her side of chips came after our mains..which made for one of my party to be frustrated and this upset the party a little.
