Food was absolutely cracking. Best burger I’ve ever had. Felt the manager was rude and not very flexible.

This is the third time we have visited the saw Grinders since the reopening of pubs and I would have to say they are the best establishment I have visited in regards to abiding to the new guidelines. They have managed to fulfil every thing, the big open spaces are great and so are the staff with the table service they provide. We took our elderly parents out with us this weekend and they felt very safe and and at ease having their first post lockdown drinks here. Well done to you guys,

From our arrival and greeting to paying the bill and leaving, everything was outstanding. The food menu was restricted for kitchen Covid safety but it was perfect. The cocktail menu is superb and they went off piste for a special request. We went back the next day for pancakes breakfast. Delicious

It's great to see a venue taking social distancing measures seriously. Loads of outdoor space, plenty of staff and the food was excellent. We have a small baby and will only go to places where we feel that we can socialise safely. We will be back!

Felt totally safe for the two hours we were there. We only went for drinks, but service was super quick even though it's all table service. The staff were brilliant and really lovely! Seems to be the only place playing music at the moment so the atmosphere was brilliant.

It took us a long time to order and I would say an hour before a drink came, after we had chased them up. Interestingly the drink came after the food.
I’m pregnant so waiting an hour for a drink isn’t ideal! Very thirsty!
Then we had a second round of drinks but that again took ages, the same person who took the drinks order came to ask us again if we wanted more drinks, we just said could we have the ones we actually ordered! when we were leaving we had to find someone to pay for them, this took another 20 mins! The staff are really nice but seemed unorganised.
Food was very nice though.
Also think about a visor rather than a mask, can’t hear anything the waiter said.

Staff are friendly and helpful. Busy Friday night so a few times we found table service difficult to get hold of but everything came very quickly once ordered. Can't wait to visit again!!

Given the current circumstances it was nice to be able to eat/drink out and feel safe. The service was a bit slow but I am sure this is simply due to the unprecedented times.

As I mentioned on my Insta post when I left -
Been for food and drinks this afternoon. Best
‘Post lock down’ experience yet. Staff were excellent, beers tasted great, some of best burgers we have ever had and whole ‘experience’ was top notch. Thanks. Will be back soon! Keep up the good work’

I work for Heineken (in Alexi team) and called him to feed back too! Looking forward to getting back!

A gem in Kelham Island. Great cocktails in a good setting. Plenty of socially distanced outside tables.
We didn’t try the food this time. We went for the cocktails, but the food going to other tables looked great.
