Went on a Saturday evening for dinner had a reservation really busy but had to wait 30 mins for the table still. They had a lot of things not available due to a power cut, but we're still able to offer a decent range. We tried a few dishes, the brisket bun was the highlight for me - tasted amazing. All of the meat was perfectly cooked and unbelievably succulent - wouldn't hesitate to go back.

They have really great things, but the menu is quite small so you could exhaust it with 3 visits.

Amazing food, in particular the crispy pigtails, brisket bun and the most gorgeous sticky toffee pudding. Bar stool seating not the most comfortable and some of the wait staff were a bit brusque but overall a great experience

Definitely one of the best ribs I've ever had. The service was excellent, and the waiters were very friendly. The ambience and the food were terrific. It's that kind of restaurant you can go with your mates for ribs, meat and good beer or with your girlfriend.

Blown away by how awesome this place is. Staff were amazing, waiting in the bar downstairs for our table which is such a great little waiting area. Table was perfect, right in the window so great to watch the world go by. Food was amazing, highly recommend the Ox Cheek and the Beef Rib. Staff were wonderful, even put a candle in my other halfs sticky toffee pudding (which was to die for). Really great venue, you won't be disappointed :)

Some of the best meat and innovative veg you'll find in the area. Beef galore - but seriously, try the beetroot and aubergine and moreish potato skins.

The best brisket I have ever had by far, amazing service as I have some food allergies the waitress went to the kitchen to be sure and came back with the chef.
Great value for money

We had a great time at SMOKESTAK and will be back soon. The food came out quite quick and the waiters were super attentive. We were a group of roughly 20 and the staff helped to make sure that we had a great time and enough space.
The food was delicious as always and we can't wait to go back!

booked the restaurant for a post-work meal with 2 other friends.
the menu is small but everything we had was sensational. Our table overlooked the kitchen which was fab as we got to see the food being prepared, so actually ended up ordering a couple of extra dishes as they looked so good!
ps the sticky toffee pudding is to die for!
the cocktails are also yummy, potent but yummy!
cant wait to go back to try the rest of the menu

The food was amazing. I have never eaten a beef brisket as tender as the one from Smokestak. The place is very cool and I love the industrial feel. Staff are friendly and prices are reasonable. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves meat.

I'd read a lot about Smokestak over the last few months, and it lived up to all the hype! The food was delicious, and it was a really good value. I was a little concerned that the service was going to be focused more on other younger, hipper tables than ours, but the service was outstanding too. We really enjoyed and plan to return again soon.
