Have been going to this place for quite a few years now, and I have to say the food is fantastic! I'm gluten free so I'm unable to have the burritos there, and the food isn't as filling as some meals out there; however with...More

Hubby and I had chicken wraps today from the Shambles Kitchen pop up stall at the street food part of the Great Yorkshire Fringe. Shawarma and Tandoori chicken were both amazing, delicious slaw style salad and red cabbage, all wrapped up in a huge flatbread....More

The first day we went in, around 4:30 pm, the employees all seemed to hip to care and the food was all sold out. But then we ordered smoothies and the employees warmed up were really nice. The smoothies are delicious! The Seedy smoothie is...More

Really enjoyed this upmarket and nutritious fast food. We had the Moroccan chicken rice box and every element was beautiful. It was good value too (lots of chicken). The only downside was the lack of space to sit down inside (we perched on a nearby...More

The food here is fantastic! A favourite with the locals every time. The staff are super friendly, and the service is quick in spite of sometimes pretty big ques - the food is more than good enough to warrant it! Cannot recommend highly enough. Sandwiches...More

Finally I've gotten round to devouring one of these pulled pork sandwhichs. They are definatley famous for a reason. When you want meat in a bun and can't be fizzed with the typical beef burger this is the one! Juicy, dripping with flavour and generously...More

Hello. The shop is open as normal but the burrito stall is closed. As always it's best to come before 3pm to avoid things selling out. Enjoy, Simon

Hello. If you're referring to the kebab stall, yes. And it is possible to have it without onion. We have a limited veggie menu at events due to the amount of chicken we get through. Fridge space is at a premium. Hope that's... More

Thanks Amanda. The daily meaty special (except on Sunday) and soup of the day are gluten free. You can also have the pulled pork with salad in a box, instead of bread. And it's not on the menu, but we do a salad box... More

A small sandwich shop with a big reputation. Everything is made from scatch, on site, to our own recipes. We only have 8 seats but have a very quick turnaround and all our food is available to takeaway. Our specialty is our succulent Pulled Pork sandwich and Shambles Reuben. The meats are smoked overnight, rested for 1 hour and served quick-sharp to avoid drying out. Come between 11am and 3pm to avoid missing out on it.
