    Food and service was lovely. Prices were way over the top for a burger as you had to order everything else as sides, like chips, coleslaw etc. The burger was the same price as a decent steak once the meal was built. As a local i would go somwhere else where there was more than one choice of canned lager at more than the price of a pint. Its a shame because if the prices were a little cheaper it would be my go to place, but they are being greedy.

    Burger itself was lovely. Our problem was with having our side dishes served about 10 minutes before the burgers came so all goes cold. When we asked the server why we were told they like to serve the sides hot as soon as they r ready. First restn I have ever been in where sides are not made to come out with mains at the SAME TIME..very very weird policy.

    The Smith’s Classic Burger, fries and vinegar slaw were awesome. So yummy. We ordered the milk shake for dessert and it was more like chocolate milk. We prefer a more thick shake that is 90% ice cream and not much milk.

    Delicious food and cocktails. All service staff very friendly and polite, however delayed service impaired enjoyment of meal - we ordered a number of sides with our burgers and some of these did not arrive for half an hour after originally being served the burgers so we cancelled these without issue.

    Lovely evening. Food was delicious. Service isn't the quickest, cocktails are obviously made to order and came out separately. I was half way through mine before the other drinks arrived. We would not hesitate about going back. 🍔🥂

    Incredible burgers! I’ve tried 4 different varieties of fries and next time I think I’m just going to stick with the chicken tenders instead. The burgers, are the best I’ve ever eaten. Service incredible and great local beers and ciders.

    Fantastic cocktails and absolutely delicious, high quality food. We went twice during our week holiday, it was that good! Great music creates a friendly, upbeat atmosphere; our 1 year old highchair-danced through the meals and thoroughly enjoyed himself. Would highly recommend this restaurant, it was faultless.

    First time eating at Smith’s and I would definitely go back. It was honestly the best burger I have ever tasted. I had mine with fries and the portions were big. The burger was homemade and delicious. All the staff were really welcoming and friendly. A must try if you are visiting the area.

    The food was incredible. The corn ribs, loaded fries and chicken tenders were amazing. The green chilli cheese burger was very very very spicy, which we were warned about, but it was very tasty and we finished it! Staff were brilliant and very friendly. Really want to eat there again.

    Excellent food and a good choice on the menu. We ate from the new menu and the food was simply delicious. Cajun spiced fries and doubled up green chilli and avocado burger 🍔 was just the best. Great atmosphere, good choice of beer and a back street setting just a stones throw from the river. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area.

    Excellent burgers, and my wife can recommend the cocktails (well two of them, at least). Food arrives when it's ready so don't expect everything at the same time, and that may not be mentioned when you arrive. That being said, it was worth persevering as the food was very good, and the ambience was buzzy and the decor nicely quirky, which elevates Smiths above your average high end burger establishment. Pleasant and friendly atmosphere, and every table was busy, even on Monday evening.

    What a truly fabulous place to eat really tasty food served with a pleasant welcome. Great little restaurant in the heart of Bourton. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. The choice of food was simple and not over complicated, served up beautifully and tasted really, really good. They do exactly “what it says on the tin” but they do it really well. A must place to go. Thank you you for a really lovely evening. Even our dog was made welcome and he actually behaved himself amongst all those meaty smells!!
