    Great food. Was outside so I can't say what it is like eating inside but the outside was fairly nice and the food and drinks were good.

    The staff were very pleasant and attentive. They made sure we were happy with our food. The food was lovely and portion sizes were generous. There was plenty of choice on the menu and a large range of cocktails too. The atmosphere was great with a chilled American diner vibe. I would strongly recommend this place if you love fried chicken.

    Second time visiting and never ceases to amaze me. I've been with the lads from work and also a girls lunch date, ticks all the boxes. The selection of food and drinks - incredible! It's all so fresh and super tasty. The portions are insanely good and superb value for money. If you can't finish your food, the take away boxes are ideal and I love that it reduces waste and means I get a second round of sheer indulgent joy later on. Great vibe inside, love the decor, tunes and the whole feel of the place. Last but by no means least, the staff are oh so lovely, like genuinely nice people and always a joy.

    Good afternoon. Thank you so much for this great review and for taking the time to write it as its very much appreciated. So glad that you, the lads from work and your lunch date all enjoyed their time with us. Love that you feel the same way as we do about the vibe, decor, tunes and just all in all the feel of the place. I will be sure to pass on your kind words to all of the staff as customer care is something that we take huge pride in. Hope to see you back for your 3rd visit very soon. Best wishes and many thanks, Bucks team
