Excellent burger and nachos. Cooked really nice and came out piping hot and did not have to wait long! Love the spicy coleslaw too! We ate in the bar which was nice as you can see out over the Barbican!

We had a relaxing lunch here on a very cold day. Southern American food - we had the chilli (very good) and the vegetarian nachos (huge portion). Great blues soundtrack. Two large glasses of excellent house Shiraz. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.
