This was my second visit to a venue in the Dirty Bones Chain. As before, the food, the service, the ambience was first class. Highly recommended.

Was a bit dead when we visited on boxing day (understandable) - but the food more than made up for it! The chicken and waffles were the star dish. Reasonably priced. Definitely recommended.

Just great, fabulous female manager was kind and attentive and took a genuine interest in us. She took the time to find out the reason for our visit and then when she found out gave us complimentary champagne. She made a gorgeous meal a memorable meal for my daughter and us.

Definitely recommend.

Thank you

Met with old friends and was looking for something which was simple and central to town. Dirty Bones fit the bill. Had far too much to drink, which was reflected in the bill but what the hell! Service friendly and attentive- what more could you want!

Five of us were tremendously well looked after on a busy Saturday night. Attention from our servers was terrific, just the right amount of checking to make it feel really relaxed but attentive.

Food was amazing, beers always well chilled and pace of order to table amazing.

Going back tomorrow night with wife and kids - can’t fault it.

We dined at the Soho restaurant early evening on a Friday and the place was already very busy, which was great as it created a lively atmosphere, also an added bonus that they had a happy hour running! Food we great, we shared a few dishes for Starters and then 4 main courses which were great, especially the breaded chicken and waffles with maple syrup. We did feel like we were rushed even though they were turning people away at the door and the service was very good overall.

Went with my brother on Friday evening and we ordered half pile chicken, mac n cheese balls, cheeseburger dumplings and sprouts to share. Portions were very good sized and this was enough to leave two greedy and hungry people very full! The chicken and sprouts were particularly yummy and there was a vibrant lively atmosphere - but it was particularly nice as wasn’t so loud or noisy that you couldn’t chat.
We had a good meal and it was worth the price we paid overall

Although the overall experience was Good, the service we received was fair. Firstly they were keen on taking our order as soon as our last guest joined the table, secondly half way through the meal they came to collect an empty plate, prompting another staff to clear the rest of our plates when we hadn't finished our meal. Then came dessert, they took the plate without checking if we had finished, making us feel we had to vacate the table quickly even though the restaurant was quiet with free tables.

I do enjoy Dirty Bones. The staff are always very attentive and the Crispy lamb fries are always good.

Messed up on the last visit though. Used my friends with benefits card, but they forgot to apply the discount. I only realised afterwards. Wish they remembered :(

Food was fantastic. Wings, chicken and ribs all great!
Service was pretty slow which was a bit frustrating, and food arrived before drinks.
Other than that, really enjoyed it and would highly recommend for the food alone.
