Food was great, waitress was brilliant too. Only slight grievance we had was the wait between starters and mains (although we were warned of the wait when we ordered) just meant by the time the mains came I wasn't massively hungry. Still ate the lot mind, to the point it hurt haha.

My husband and I go to saucy burger frequently for our date nights, this time the food really let it down our burgers were completely burnt and so dry. Really disappointing will probably find a new date night venue now. The only saving grace of our night was that we received good service and the drink selection is good.

The two staff on duty were very helpful and friendly. We were a table of four and when we ordered our mains only two of us were able to have the dishes that we had chosen. The other two diners in our party were advised that their choice of char grilled chicken (not burger) was sold out. Our booking was 8pm.on a Saturday - how can a simple chicken dish not be available?
The alternative offered and ordered was a very dry burger.

I was very disappointed with the quality of our food and we will not be dining at Saucy Burger again.

Absolutely brilliant place! Food was unreal and good value! They also have specials on at off peak hours that we will be back for!

My only tiny quarm was we got skinny chips, I was so looking forward to chunky chips, maybe ask what type of chips customer wants when ordering 😉 Other than that it was perfect and we will be back!

Love coming here! Nachos with pulled pork - divine! It's a starter but plenty for 2 to share. Ribs are melt in the mouth

We had the lunch special menu - £13 for 2 courses & a drink - good choice & options to add different choices for small additional cost.
The food was lovely & service was very fast (but we were the only people in there!)

I was not impressed with the burger which tasted a little too charred. The freak shakes are tiny and not good value at all, i would have expected it to be double the size. The lighting was terrible and I couldn't see what I was eating.

Very nice evening at saucy burger. Service was excellent. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Nice atmosphere and not overcrowded. Only thing that let it down was the portion sizes of the food compared to the prices and menu description. Although burgers were tasty they were very small. Overall a nice experience however I would probably visit again for lunch rather than evening meal.

Took the family for a meal, Sunday 11th June.

Staff were very good and service was great. Food was great, although ribs were a little fatty. Not that many people in but great relaxed atmosphere.

Would recommend.

First visit and really enjoyed it. The food arrived quick and was delicious. We had the bwa burger and it was one of the best burgers I've had, not greasy in the slightest and so tasty. The prices were also very reasonable, £35 for 3 of us including a drink is pretty good for the quality of food. Can't wait to go back

On a Saturday night it had a good vibe with great music. The drinks and food were all tasty, and the while the burgers were smaller than we anticipated, they were super filling. However, the service was very slow. We didn't get to order food for almost half an hour and no one really checked up on us throughout the meal. We had to ask for someone when we needed something. I think we would go back again and just hope for a different server.

I visited on Sunday with my sister, her partner and my partner. We often go out for tea on a Sunday and fancied tapas. It was absolutely phenomenal, the portions were much bigger than expected and we over ordered as a result - as a rule tapas portions are small.

The atmosphere was lovely and the music was really enjoyable - some classics were played.

My only two comments would be;
Lights to be a touch brighter, I prefer to have a good view of my food and it was a bit dark.
More tasty vegetable options on the tapas menu (the peppers which accompanied the halloumi was lovely and I would have ordered as an individual portion)

The serving staff were lovely, had some crack with us and was generally very helpful.

Disappointed!!!!
Booked a family meal here, however, underwhelmed is how I feel. We waited 40 minutes for our food, which was no issue really. Then the food arrived, whereby three out of four meals were just warm. We didn't want to make a fuss, but when asked how it was, my reply was that the food was not hot. The waitress asked if I wanted to return my meal, but I declined after such a wait. The waitress returned later with a tray of the meat I ordered. The pulled pork was still only just warm. The burgers were bland and of no substance. I should have sent all the meals back.The gesture of offering more warm food was really not enough. My husband received a cocktail on the house, which was a nice touch. What a shame our experience wasn't great. The chefs need to work on their timings and presentation.

We've been here before and the standard has definitely slipped; the food took ages to arrive, the nachos were only ok as opposed to last time when they were really good, the chargrilled chicken burger off the kids menu was dry, the pulled pork was crispy on top and lukewarm at the edges as though it had been stood out under a heat lamp. They weren't busy by any stretch of the imagination to warrant how long our food took to come and we won't be rushing back. The waitress who served us was lovely but didn't make up for an all round disappointing experience :(

Service was terrible waited hour and half for main course to be told there was still 2 tables before us and then main courses were brought out for another table that came in at least 20 mins after us after I had complained. Won't be eating there again.

This was a lovely place when is was doctor feel goods we decided to try it again and we weren't disappointed. We had a sharing platter a couple of cocktails and a mock tail. The only 2 small things were that we think one of the cocktails should have had smoke effect on it and they missed the coleslaw from platter. We didn't realise until we had almost finished it. Otherwise lovely evening.
