We had a fantastic lunch at the blues kitchen. We both had buffalo wings and cheeseburgers. Fantastic! Service was attentive without being too intrusive. This is a great place to eat. We'll definitely be returning.

Really lovely service, we’d said it was our friend’s birthday before arriving and they organised for a dessert and we all got to sing ‘happy birthday’. staff regularly checked in and were always smiling.
Will be returning!

Food was unbelievable! Loved it.
The music was brilliant and it’s a great atmosphere. The service could have been a bit better the staff seemed more interested in chatting to each other but I would most definitely be back for the food alone.

The ambience was great, but this was overshadowed by poor selection of vegetarian options and when it arrived the food was barely warm. For the meat eaters in our group the main meals, like the brisket was not available because of stock issues. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable.

It was all ok, I wouldn’t rush back as it isn’t anything “special”, it’s a burger and ribs vibe, and expected more ambience and entertainment but this isn’t available in the dining room. But it filled a hole in our stomachs and food was of a good but not exceptional standard

First time there, loved the decor but found there to be a din, extremely noisy. Took a long time to get used of it. Thought it may have been an age thing( 55) but my son of 17 said it was too noisy for him. Food and service was 1st class. Would like to experience the live music next time

Really love this place, the food was delicious and I had one of the nicest cocktails I have ever had. Unfortunately the musician we had booked to see wasn’t great.
