While the bar was fairly busy we were served rather quickly with no sacrifice to quality. Food was amazing and atmosphere relaxing. Definitely go back

Visited this evening with my parents who are both meat eaters. My dad decided to have a vegan burger as I am vegan and we were both blown away. The size of it was enormous and it is a real slap in the face to idiots who mock veggies and vegans and say we live on lettuce - I think... More

Came here for a 40th birthday and loved it. Staff are super friendly and accommodating and work very hard. Menu is fun and imaginative. Portions are enormous. There is often live music but not on the night we were there, which was actually fortunate!

My friend and I came here whilst visiting Southampton for the day. We read some reviews and thought we'd wander over. It was really lovely and just what we needed. The staff were really friendly especially the female with the blonde hair. The food was really good and they have a great range of drinks. We sat in the sun... More

Have read a lot of reviews about this place from here and other places. And everyone raves about it. But sadly for me it was just about average. Yes the burgers are massive. But size is not everything. They are tricky to eat due to their size. Loads of chips and loads of a very average salad. The desert for... More

You look at the menu and you think wow these are expensive but the burgers are huge really tasty and real value for money. They are also good at getting cooking there burgers to a medium but if you prefer rare or well done they are happy to. They also have an excellent selection of real ale.

I'm kidding, I really rate this place. The burgers are so good and as a celiac it's always great to find somewhere good with gluten free. And, on top of that, I was super impressed with the service. :)
