People were screaming couldn’t hear myself talk. Food was burnt. One of my friends burgers tasted of black charcoal so couldn’t eat it. The cocktails were very over priced for the amount you were given in glass. Service was very slow and not the friendliest. Heard good thing but perhaps due to how busy it was the food and service was not as good.

good value and friendly service, if a little noisy.
it's fairly basic on the food side, but works quite well if going in a little group who are not looking for a culinary experience.

Food and service were great - however as we were in mid-afternoon the restaurant was practically empty so not much in the way of ambiance.

Quality of food is always excellent but with the special deal on it was outstanding value. The buttermilk chicken wrap is the best wrap I have had anywhere and brings me back again and again.
Service is always good also.

Second time at Sygn and was expecting it to be as good if not better that the first. Forgot to give us the shot for the pornstar martini, food order was wrong, wrong flavour of cider was provided with no explanation and charged us for fries that were part of the meal deal! Service was poor, we had to wait around a lot before our food order could be taken and our bill was provided. Such a shame as we loved the ambience and the food was delicious.

I must say, the portions don’t reflect good value for money. The halloumi starter was four sticks of Halloumi and cost £5.50 which I found overpriced.

The burgers were also pretty smal - the buns in particular.

I have been coming to sygn over the years and think your portions have shrunk. So not the best value for money - was fine as I got the 50% off for booking online but I wouldn’t come back if it wasn’t for that.

Sygn is one of my favourite burger joints. Food is yummy and service is always good. Staff are all very pleasant and welcoming. The 50% offer is a real bonus. The only negative is that it's not a very warm place, so dress appropriately!

VERY disappointing experience in a number of ways! Was like walking into a rave, music booming and could hardly hear each other across table, asked twice to have music turned down and they eventually did it. Given the age of the clientele they had obviously not considered the customer. Service very poor, took 40 mins for food to arrive and had to ask twice for our bill. Friend was on lunch from work and late back! Basically only given 2 gluten free options, either a burger without the bun or steak salad! I suspect there was more but waitress disinterested. Friend had halloumi salad and halloumi was served cold. Chips were very salty. Cocktail was nice as was wine. There was not a working female toilet, all flooded and Manager did apologise and removed drinks from bill but suspect they should not have been open. Suggestion was we went to bar across the road! Staff member told us happens all the time but not her prob soon as she was leaving! We promptly moved to bar next door as soon as we could. All in all a VERY disappointing experience, spoilt our afternoon. We won’t be back!

We recently dined as a large group and the service could not have been better. We felt like we almost had our own private area which was great. The food was delicious although some portions were quite small but the majority were actually quite large. I would definitely recommend Sygn to friends and would also definitely be back.

Although our table was reserved and ready for us, it was sticky and wet. One of our party ended up with a stained top from the drips off the table.
I had written on the reservation email that one of our diners was gluten free, the waitress could not provide us with an allergen menu, yet it said at the bottom of the menu to ask for one. She was only able to choose from 1 starter and there was no real main course for her as there was no gluten free buns for the burgers. She ended up with fries and coleslaw - not really acceptable!!
We have eaten in Sygn before and I took my friends there for good food and drinks - didn’t really happen. So disappointed.

I absolutely love the food at Sygn but I’m afraid the time it takes to get food and service is terrible. We booked for lunch for 7. Told them we had hour. Everyone got burgers but took almost 45 mins to get our food. Amazing as it was 15 mins to eat and pay ends up being stressful.

We had booked a group deal with the venue and made them aware of the deal we were using. They allowed us to book the table the day after the voucher was meant to expire which didn’t seem a problem for them until the day. On the day, the staff were extremely unhelpful and would not offer any solutions other than pay full price for everything. Luckily the voucher company helped refund this. After all this, the food was mediocre, cocktails small and overpriced. Would not recommend.

It was a wet Sunday night . There is probably more atmosphere when the place is a bit busier

The food was really great, we had burgers and chicken wings along with a few other sharers and were really impressed. My only critisim is the free cocktail we got through booking through opentable was very small and was basically fruit juice. But otherwise very happy with the meal, was perfect for a girls get together.
