American Cheese Sauce
A smashing place to wile away a Sunday afternoon. Loved the plant wall. Very accommodating to me in a wheelchair, and our dog. Very friendly staff
My friend said the veggie burger was one of the best be had, and rated the peri fries
My only complaint is that they're not open all week!
Great Pancakes but be warned the portions are VERY large, I’ve a good appetite so ordered the full stack (5) but only managed 3 !!!
I didn’t actually have the food but the service was really good. We were advised on tasty cocktails and it just felt like a really relaxed experience. Really cool place as well. The footy was on but because of how it’s set out you didn’t get drowned out by it if you didn’t want to watch it. Definitely will be back.
Lovely food and the place is very nice as well,I do think the drinks are vastly overpriced,some pints were as much as £6 but it's a nice place to come as a treat now & then.Maybe expand the menu a bit more but the burgers were 10/10.
The waitress was really nice and funny
Friendly staff from the door staff to the servers. Nice choice of drinks - limited food menu (chips and burgers) would have been nice to have some bar snacks/small plates. Great atmosphere and a beautiful building to be located in. Congrats to the guys renovating the building and well done SGU - we’ll be back!
Just had a table for drinks - put food as 5 star so the review wasn't skewed down. Great place, nice courtyard and tasty drinks. Would go back and would definitely recommend!
Fantastic brunch and even though the choice was only pancakes, there were plenty to choose from. The staff were very friendly, the atmosphere was great - definitely recommended 😊
Execellent.Friendly staff,great service
Lovely place, cocktails were really good.
Waiters were warm, friendly and chatty - really helped make the day! Great atmosphere and choice, too
Friendly and amazing service. Had the best pancakes on a Sunday morning for breakfast !
Lovely evening but could have done with 2 hours at least.
Really helpful and friendly staff even in the pouring rain!
Annoyingly the pancakes stopped at 12 - a hard stop so we weren’t able to get any when we arrived at 12:15 but staff were lovely
I don't want to leave a review as it may make you go and there will be no space for me. :)
Had a great time. Very impressed with the courteous door staff who helped when two of the party had trouble signing in. Didn't have food on this occasion. Would have stayed longer but it was a bit cold outside. Will be back soon.
Fantastic burgers and drinks. Super friendly staff and did what they could to provide adequate shelter outside.
Amazing food and service, great atmosphere! Love the décor too
The waitresses were lovely and lovely atmosphere but the bouncers were awful. Didnt greet us when we got there as they were toobusy talking to eachother. One told us off saying we need to wear a mask outside?? Then the waitresses took last orders and the bouncers were trying to kick us out before our drinks had even arrived. When the drinks got here he came over saying we need to put them in plastic cups and go, I needed more plastic cups as he had only given 2 for 5 people and he was being funny about giving the cups.
We were seated on a table without heaters, even though I had booked as on as bookings opened. We kept asking to move, and eventually were moved, after seeing customers arriving after us getting heated tables. My main complaint is about a bouncer; when they were closing up, our server told us we had 15 mins to finish our drinks. One minute later, another server asked if we would like to order more drinks; we declined. One minute after that, the bouncer came over and said we had to leave immediately. We started getting our stuff together/downing drinks etc. He proceeded to stand over our table and stare at us until we left. We said we were leaving and could he please move onto another table, but he refused to do this until we left. There were around 10 other tables that were being much louder than us, still drinking and even having cocktails brought out, but the bouncer felt the need to single our table out. We were the oldest and quietest group in there! This bouncer was an older, black male: he was intimidating, rude and it just wasn’t necessary. I will not be returning because of him.
The set up around Covid was fantastic.
Love coming here.
We didn’t eat, just went for drinks. It was really well organised, plenty of servers. We moved to a table in the sun, which was lovely. There was a nice atmosphere, we wished we could have stayed longer.
Booked a meal with my wife was taken to our table .Not a lot to choose from but the burgers and fries are outstanding cheese sauce was also good.Drinks were of good quality an overall experience I would recommend.
Booked a table for 2 at 1pm on a Saturday, the booking process was nice and simple so no issues there. Doormen made sure social distancing was adhered to prior to been taken to the table and they were very polite. Service was very quick and efficient despite it being busy. Despite burgers being the only thing on the menu they were delicious and worth every penny even if it was expensive. Would go again
We always enjoy this bar and visit every time we go around Kelham.
As usual, food was great and service was fab
The waiting staff were incredible. I didn't 100% know what I wanted as I was seated, and I went by the recommendations.
Really knowledgeable and lovely staff.
Brilliant atmosphere, prices are getting worse mind Lol like being down in London!
All joking aside, great to get back out drinking and feel normal again. The drinking area was well kept and prompt service received.
Great evening, fabulous service, nice set up, well organised
Great night. All staff were friendly and service was excellent. All covid requirements were being followed
Great service, wonderful ambience and a good choice of drinks. The food menu is limited but really well presented and delicious.
I’d recommend SGU. Great atmosphere great drinks & food. Can’t wait to return
Absolutely fantastic to be out out , food and drinks great staff helpful & attentive
Perfect Sunday afternoon. Service great, good food, clean and stress free.
Friendly, attentive staff, delicious burgers, nice buzzy atmosphere. We'll definitely be back!
First time visit. Friendly and efficient staff. Good selection of drinks. Food is limited to burgers And pancakes but quality is good. Covid rules followed and felt safe and assured as area was not overcrowded. Will go again when things open up more.
Gorgeous food. Really great and friendly staff - everyone made you feel super welcoming and the service was really quick.
Great time had, safety in checking in, the QR menu and staff constantly asking for drinks and any assistance.
All good but my reservation was for 9.30pm and the kitchenwas already closed, they should inform this in the reservation.
