Staff were very quick to be on your case to order, take drinks from table when i had not finished and pressured to order the food when it was not busy,
we had two mains - Chicken Shish with rice and the lamb chops with Bulgar and salad
The chicken was just about cooked not seasoned very well, lacked flavour, the lamb was also not marinated too well, smelt like sheeps bottom.
The salad was only fresh with the cucumber and lettuce however the tomatoes looked like they had been left out and kept over night and put in the fridge. The meal came to under £40 which was very pricey
we had two cokes and these two mains , they did bring complimentary bread, sauces and chilli and then a Turkish tea at the end. Such a shame i had high hopes having had lovely experiences with Turkish cuisine but this was not good

Lovely food, very attentive waiters, we went as a family and sat outside as allowed with the latest rules. I do recommenced you check your bill before paying though as unfortunately we got someone else’s desserts added to our bill, we didn’t notice until after we had paid, but we did get given the amount back in change (paid card).
Overall a great place to eat and we’ll definitely be back as the food was delicious!!

We were met at the door by a member of staff, he showed us to our table and he was very friendly, the restaurant was COVID friendly with screens at every table, the members of staff had masks on, the food was delicious and plenty of it all at very reasonable prices, would definitely recommend.

For the price of each dish, you don’t get a lot of meat in comparison to the enormous side salad!

This is the second time I've dined here, as loved the food so much last time! Great food, at reasonable prices. Staff very attentive and friendly
The only critique I would have is that this time we sat on the bench tables by the window - it was a bit chilly, and the benches were too far from the tables to be comfortable

Thought the food was overpriced and a bit tasteless to be honest. Lovely decor etc. When I went up to pay the bill the lady asked for the money before I was given the bill!

Didnt have much expectations, but one of the most flavoursome and juiciest mixed grill weve had.
Drinks were a bit too sweet (we ordered some mocktails) but other than that the experience was wonderful

Our 2nd visit - As a family of 2 adults & 2 Children. The service was good. The meat was all over cooked especially the lamb chops & kids burgers. The rice also was over. My second Coke was poured out a 2 litre bottle and brought to table - I pulled them and it was replaced by individual 300 ml bottle! Tricks of the trade

Overall spent £120 on a meal that wasn’t that great

The Dog & Gun Turkish smashes this place to pieces

Shame
