“Wear your elasticated pantaloons”
Reviewed 22 December 2013 via mobile

We've been here a few times now and it's a firm favorite of ours. You get a card with green side and a red side. Green means bring me meat. Red means stop. You get a little starter, some pastries, but that is enough. You also get sides. Beans, fries and rice. But the main event really is the meat. Sausages, sirloin, honey glazed ham, chicken, rump, and a few other types as well. All cooked really well to boot. And from there you chow down. And the guys keep coming until you flip the mat to red. You rest, and back to green. Don't be tempted to be all hero about it, take your time to enjoy this unique way of eating. There is a set menu that doesn't include dessert and to be honest you'll be so full you'll probably opt out of it anyway. You can book online which is handy, it does seem to get quite busy from 6pm onward so I'd recommend booking in advance.

“Good value for money - lots if meat!”
Reviewed 16 December 2013 via mobile

Great idea! If you like lots of neat and can eat a fair bit then go for it! All good quality tasty meat and as much or as little as you want. The place is a little tired and could do with sprucing up a bit! The staff are your and don't have much idea about customer service but they were okay. We were left waiting 30 mins past our reservation time to sit down which was quite annoying. All meat or medium or rare so if you like well done, it's probably no good for you! I think I'd go back but not in a hurry!

“maybe expected more”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Having read many reviews we decided to visit. The staff were welcoming, polite and helpful. The early arrival of our side dishes well before any meat meant that they had gone quite cold when the meat arrived.

All the meat was well cooked and very tasty. We never had a wait before more meat arrived. The staff were attentive but not pushy.

Just beware the 'voluntary' service charge included in your bill !!!

Overall it was enjoyable, if expensive and on a personal note I do not like having a 'voluntary' tip included in my bill. It was just lacking that little bit of pzazz for us.

“Unique eating experience”
Reviewed 12 December 2013

We didn't know what to expect of this place but the reviews were very good so we went for it. It is a family-run restaurant and they and their staff are very warm and welcoming and the atmosphere is relaxed, happy and friendly.

You are given a disc -rather like a beer mat. One side is green - for GO and the other side is red for STOP. As long as you are showing green, the waiter brings all kinds of delicious meats to your table. You just say beforehand, how you like it cooked. We like our meat charred and it came EXACTLY as we like it. I noticed other tables getting rare or medium-rare. First comes the starters : hot dough balls and lamb pancake/pakora-type things. Totally DELICIOUS! Then the meats start: Gammon And you help the waiter scrape off as much as you would lik, by a tool that you are given. After Gammon comes steak, then marinated barbecued chicken thighs, then other meats etc until you turn your card to RED for a rest or a complete stop. Also beautiful accompaniments are brought over. Basically it's all completely delicious and a very unique way of being served. The puddings were great too. It's not cheap at £25 per head plus drinks and tip etc, but it's real quality food and great cooking and you will feel its worth the money.
