    The service was warm and friendly but inattentive. I asked for no diary but my wings still arrived on a blue cheese sauce base. I love dirty food but some dishes were over-salty. The flatiron was outstanding.

    This was a highly recommended place by friends, I was highly disappointed as this was for a birthday and the food came out cold, the waiter even touched the food after we mentioned we were not going to eat it and they apologised straight away! There was no real service here at all! I mean I only ask for a burger and chip to be warm not even hot and I was expected to eat cold food!! Then it was a case of .... it’s in the house ... and this as well...!!! I didn’t want anything on the house I wanted warm to hot food!! Added to this was the fact they brushed the whole thing to the side when leaving. They did bring the food out but again we took a bite and decided it’s just not worth it. We paid for the bits we ate and left. I believe this place is normally better and it’s most likely a one off.... but with so many other same styles food joins around, I’m not going to be rushing back this side of 2025!!!!!!

    Quite a noisy and small place, with little privacy between different tables. The place was also a little too dark for our liking. The food and drinks were generally decent, but there was nothing spectacular. Service was good. One of the staff accidentally dropped a glass and some drink was spilled onto one of us. The manager quickly apologised and offered free shots. Good if you are just hanging out with friends on a chill night. Not good if you want a nice place for a date, a business meal, or a place for meaningful conversations.

    The portion of the food was too small for the price of the dish. Fried chicken is fried chicken only, rice or salad should be offered on the side. Fried chicken is too greasy. Dessert too sweet

    The starters were nice - wings and dumplings and also the cocktails were good but the main, half chicken and chilli chicken burger was not good at all. Had two bites and left the rest. Tasteless and not spicy. Stick to starters and don’t get mains!

    The burger I ordered was the "Mac Daddy", which although small packed a punch. This with the Mac & Truffle Cheese made for a great meal. Very tasty and fulfilling. The price was higher than I would've liked but expected of the area. To enjoy a meal, for two, with food & drinks, expect to fork over ~£20-25 pp. We were sat in the middle of the relatively empty eating area, where nicer (not reserved) seating was free. Little disappointed that the staff did not offer the more comfortable area as it was clearly available - perhaps my mistake for not asking? Regardless, this was a dampener on the experience for me.

    Excellent service but the entire building was almost as cold as outside. I went to visit the ladies and there were no lights just 3 candles on a window seal. One small heater in the whole dinning area which they moved at the request of one table, don't mind the rest of us. Good cocktails maybe staff should try so when customers ask for an opinion they can give one not just based on ingredients. Food was okay. Wouldn't recommend the veggie burger- dry and tasteless however the Mac N cheese balls., delicious.

    Food was really good at Dirty Bones. We had a burger and some fried chicken to share with a side of chips. The chicken was a bit greasy but very tender and the batter was yummy. The burger was the best, we scoffed that down in seconds. The cocktails were also very good, a good selection, pretty on they eye and tasty. The only thing that prevented me from giving it some more stars was the service towards the end of the night. I understand that they were cleaning down, but it took some to get a waiters attention which was a bit disappointing after a good meal.

    Terrible service. I use open table a lot. Found this restaurant, checked availability, consulted with family and booked it for 2 hours later. Booking was confirmed so we made travel plans. Then the restaurant called me to say they had a private party and we couldn't go at all that day. What a waste of time. Does that mean I can't trust open table anymore?
