    Amazing food and atomsphere, the burgers are amazing… perhaps a few more options or a monthly special.. but the star of the show is the fried chicken starters, the fried chicken was the best I had needs to appear on a main menu.. absolutely amazing really crispy and fresh and amazing!!!

    The food is very good and I would go back. However, the restaurant is let down by an extremely repetitive playlist (we heard the same songs three times each in one short visit) - this was really irritating!

    This is our 2nd visit to Smiths this year. Amazing food and service, exactly the same as the first time we visited back in August. The most delicious burgers I have ever tasted. Amy was our server and she was super friendly and helpful. Amy was even able to recognise what we’d ordered from our first visit from the photos we’d taken! Cannot praise this place enough. An absolute gem.. I just wish it was closer to home!

    Big fan of quality of burgers however it should not take 75 mins to bring our order once placed especially with 2 kids under 5. Kids menu should be available rather than having to ask for it. Menu should be clearer if gluten/dairy free version possible.

    The service to start was awful by one young female, then it got abit better with another young female, then the gentleman came over and started saying the food will be out when its ready as other tables are waiting also? Not sure why I had to be told how a restaurant works. Regards to the atmosphere, I imagine a graveyard at midnight is more alive, it isnt a nice welcoming destination, its simply some seats in an old building to eat food, rather like eating in a quiet library. The very quiet music is inconsistent shuffling between Heavy rock and then classics!! Although the drink selection is poor, and the selection of cocktails can be counted on one hand, I had the most amazing burger. And I mean the most amazing burger. Whoever made that is a wizard. If the owners reworked this restaurant and made it a ‘funky’ burger & cocktail location like they advertise, it could be something amazing. But please sort your service team, these people are the face of your business and really are not setting a good example. Even the food being amazing, I wouldnt return and spend my money to receive poor service, poor drink selection and waste my time sitting in silence.

    We had a lovely evening at Smiths. The food when it came was delicious . There was a shortage of staff in the kitchen which was explained . It meant the wait was longer but when we ordered more wine we were given it at half price as compensation . We ordered Nachos to start which were delicious but a small portion for the price tag . Our Burgers came out before our chips . We would definitely return because the food was delicious and not compromised by lack of staff. The lighting in some areas is a bit too low . After spending the weekend in Bourton on water lack of staff in hospitality industry is clearly a problem, just like the rest of the country.

    Not really a Bar or Resturant. We knew it was going to be pricey due to other reviews and the fact you are in Bourton. Poor choice on the Menu either Burger or Burger! 3 sides to choose from and one of those was not available, only one Dessert,so if you dont fancy Bananabread then you do without. Drinks were very overpriced, over £10 for a small cocktail, and no draught beer only 330ml cans at £4.50 a go, which equates to around £7 a pint. On the plus Burgers were good and service (service charge £3) was very good. Not good value at all i'm afraid,couldn't get away without feeling a little ripped off.
