I went there in the first two weeks it opened and went back fro my 5th visit last week.
I cannot recognise the place that some of the reviewers here are mentioning- every time I've gone I've had friendly and knowledgeable staff talk me through the menu (which has been tweaked slightly over time... and improved in my opinion) and reel off an impressive knowledge of the brilliant drink selection. have a look at the whisky and bourbon rack behind the till- it's incredible.
Anyway onto the food- the chicken wings are a revelation - a great addition to the menu....salty and spicy with a deliciously slurpy blue cheese dip. I've tried most of the main course and keep coming back to the chilli dog which despite what another reviewer said here isn't the sort of thing you get from a butcher. It's moist with a really deep chilli oil kick. I'd have two if could fit them in. And the sides....they are the fun part! Maple sweet potato wedges got fought over- not for the first time- the salt beef chilli is so homely and good and cries to added to your hot dog bun. And there is my personal favourite- the frickles...deep fried pickles that sound like a Mary Shelly-esque creation but are lovely and light and still fragrant.
To drink we all had a rack of 3 small beers- a great way to tase your way round the range. All ends up it was about £23 each for wings, main and a side. You can't get 3 courses in a pub for that much.
Let's not forget- this place is FUN and DELICIOUS- you can take or leave the decor (I like it), the no reservations policy (shame but happening more and more in London)- but you can't deny that this is tasty, inventive food that puts a smile on peoples faces. Take a friend. And then smile when they take a friend. It's one of those place.
