Never disappointed. The food and service is always excellent and great value. Why pay £10 for a burger in a pub when you can eat here for the same price?

I sat at the bar as I was early for my booking and was waiting for others, but the staff ignored me and didn't ask if I wanted a drink. Food was decent

Been lots and never lets you down. Best Burger place in Manchester - prefer this more open one rather than NQ when with the kids.

The food was fantastic, as always. The service was not the best but then the restaurant was full. We had a short wait for drinks and food but the food made up for that. Overall the experience was good and we will return.

The restaurant atmosphere was relaxing and laid back. Our waitress was lovely but the food was a let down. We’ve eaten here many times before and enjoyed it but this time it was disappointing. The burgers seemed smaller and the fries and blasts were just smothered in sauce which tasted more like vinegar rather thank bbq or spicy.

Food and cocktails were amazing, waiters were very helpful (we were missing three sides but as soon as we told them they brought them in no time). Would have preferred to sit on a normal table instead of a high bench as the stools were not comfy.

Friendly staff, laid back vibes, amazing food, only thing I found odd was not having napkins on the table with our burgers and when I asked we got a roll of kitchen roll!

Great burgers, beer nice enough. Pretty slow service, but not enough to take away from a good meal.

In a group of 7, I ordered the fried chicken burger. I was disappointed that it came deep fried, as I assumed it wouldn't (the menu didn't specify deep-fried). However, I accept I should possibly have asked in advance.

Nevertheless, the food was otherwise sensational and the service was friendly and well-timed. The chips were the nicest I've ever had, without question.

Will definitely be going back.

Great value - the lights weren’t working but added to the ambience! We went for Father’s Day and didn’t realise dads are free. Bonus!

Food was excellent and a nice atmosphere, but the food took a lot longer than was advised...pretty much 2 times as long. There seemed to be no real reason for the delay either as since me and my party sat down the place started to empty out a little. Food was great and everyone was friendly. Just work on that delay time. You had 5 starving bodybuilders getting seriously hungry!

Rude staff, with no understanding of allergies. I was told because I was allergic to dairy I had to have the gluten free burger as apparently that covers everything.

I asked not to have this and asked for the burger I wanted, without the dairy eg. No cheese, different bun. They said that’s fine.

However when my order arrived it was the gluten free bun, gluten free burger stacked with 3 giant tomatoes and salad. Therefore not the burger I requested and without the sauce I requested (which I checked, was dairy free). The manager was rude and didn’t care one bit. I felt like a child being told by their parents I had to eat something. I only took one bite of the burger, and had to pay in full for it.

Overall staff are rude, obnoxious and don’t care about the service they give. I’d avoid at all costs as there are many nice places to eat in the area.

arrived to be told my booked table had been cancelled by me?? which it hadn't but fortunately we found a table, from arriving to getting food there was an hr wait which wasn't acceptable the food was a lovely as always but bad experience on this occasion this was rectified by them offering 20% off our bill which was good of them but we ended up paying an extra £5 on our car parking which didn't help!! we would visit again as we've had good experience in the past and the food is amazing hopefully our bad experience won't be repeated!!!

Food was excellent but OK priced, soft drinks expensive though - £4.00 for a lemonade?! Bit annoyed we were placed in a window table but not worth making fuss over. Enjoyable experience overall, didn't break the bank and would go back. But not to a window table.
