TAKE ADVANTAGE OF OUR HEATED AND COVERED TERRACE FOR GROUPS FROM MULTIPLE HOUSEHOLDS

Barbeque grew up in the South of the USA where cooks learned to slow roast cuts of meat over fire pits to make them tender. Exposure to the smoke of the smouldering wood added a distinctive smoky taste to the meat. The process could take many hours, leaving the meat tender and juicy.


Our award-winning smoker has been imported from the USA and is built to recreate the cooking process of those original fire pits. We use the traditional American woods of hickory and mesquite to give a full smoke flavour, and the meat stays in the smoker for up to 16 hours.

Still amazing potential but not what it was and I hope its returns. The mean was amazing but the Mac and cheese was inedible! You guys have a great brand, hopefully you can make some improvements

Good vibes, a bit loud though. Food took longer than usual to come, but my main was on the colder side. Other than that it was good, and have good cocktails and have happy hour

Overall it was ok.
The staff are nice and friendly. The food however was a little bland and some of it was not cooked well ( the pasta in mac and cheese was hard and the meat was generally dry). Compared to other place it low interms of food.

Booked on a Tuesday evening and it was completely empty so my girlfriend felt extra special since it looked like I bought out the entire restaurant for her. Staff were extremely accommodating and the food was good. The burger patties were plain but with the other inserts such as bacon,onions etc,it was more than edible. I’ll put this critique down to me seasoning my own burgers at home. The shots were wonderful and once again, the ambience was brilliant.

Love the food absolutely amazing. Tasted so good and well worth the money. Staff were so helpful and attentive. The bartenders did an AMAZING job on the cocktails, I couldn’t stop ordering more!! They need to play more modern music rather than cowboy music. But other then that it was amazing.

Awful service. We were sat down for 20 minutes before being served a drink. Starter then came before we even got a drink which arrived 10 minutes later. When we got our food 2 items were missing. They then still added service charge after we complained. When asking to take the service charge off the waitress grimaced and didn’t come back until 10 minutes later. £60 for 1 wings, 2 burgers, a pitcher and one fries… left feeling like an absolute mug. Avoid avoid avoid!!!

Poor service. Food was cold first time round. Drinks came separately. Ordered a milkshake, the one I ordered they don’t even do anymore and it took 20 minutes! Not what you’re made out to be on Instagram

Really good food as always, however the waiter did get our order wrong but this was corrected when we paid. Restaurant was a bit noisy and the women’s toilets were poorly maintained. The tables were also a bit cramped.

I took my family of five to red dog saloon in hoxton.
We were made to feel welcomed, the waiter looked after us and helped us from over ordering and really understood kids tastes when it came to ordering overloaded fries and removed the pickles.
He even helped split our milkshakes into two glasses so the kids wouldn’t be too full before their dinner.
Good range of local people and city folk with lively music and most all family friendly.

Food excellent, some of the best BBQ in London. Service a bit hit and miss, some of the staff were exceptional, but others were not. The music was not in keeping with the style of restaurant and was a bit irritating.

If you like your burger still breathing on your plate, then this is the place for you. Was told the burger is a little pink. I should have taken a picture, it literally was Steak Tartar it was shocking.

When showing the waiter our issue, was told all burgers are cooked medium rare? Never heard of that before at any burger joint, but you could tell he was shocked at what he was seeing as he agreed it was a bit raw and offered free drinks.

Buffalo wings tasted like frozen sainsburys wings with little buffalo sauce and a lot of oil.

Avoid.

Food delicious and lots of it. Service was a bit shabby to begin with, moody service staff but this was rectified when we told another member of staff who was very nice and super accommodating. Great place for a catch up, ask for a table seated away from the speakers if you are softly spoken!

The staff were talking amongst themselves a lot of the time so trying to get their attention for sauces, the bill etc took quite a while. In light of this I asked for the service to be removed (optional) and I was approached by one of the waitresses serving us in a confrontational manner which came across quite aggressive. The food took ages to come out once we had placed our orders and the food was very average/plain/basic. The restaurant was very loud and full of rowdy people which is not the setting we were expecting. We did leave a note on our booking reservation that we were celebrating a birthday however this did not get picked up but by this point, we were ready to leave which was a shame. All in all I would not recommend!

Booked table 2 weeks before, got there & was told with an attitude was table right by door or outside (8pm night). Food came out, chicken tenders were tasty but lukewarm, fries cold. Complained but we didn’t have time for them to replace so ate what I could. Asked for cutlery, was given 1 set between 2 people. No serviettes given. Manager apologised & took 50% off bill. Won’t ever go back or recommend.

Starters and mains were cold. Like they'd been left for 10 mins before serving. Drinks took an age to come. Just felt like noone was really interested in delivering top food with top service.

Sadly the restaurant was too busy for the number of staff they had available, it was chaotic and made you feel anxious just being there. The waitress was great when she was able to get to the table but was clearly rushing around and not responsible for the rest of her team. Food was ok.

Food was good but service was painfully slow. Sat down at 8pm, it was 9:30 and we still didn't have our food. We had to be somewhere at 10 so had to eat super fast and chase staff for the bill then the card machine. Very nice people and food is pretty good but wouldn't go back.

All the food tastes the same no variety of flavours. The drinks were really watered down and the music was so so loud can't socialise properly. It's got busy so can't be that bad. But was not for us! Could improve on a few things

Food was definitely worth the visit. Fantastic burger, which was why we came. The milkshake wasn’t a thick as my preference and they didn’t have half the flavours available. But the burger… wow, ordered the devastator and it certainly delivered. Almost put me in a food coma. This is my third visit and I’ll be back again, the burgers never disappoint.
