An award winning restaurant with a funky menu serving local produce in shape of burgers and steak amongst other interesting dishes. The burgers have various side dishes and extras which can be ordered to make your perfect burger. A nice meal for around a tenner, although a dessert such as cheesecake (with local cream) will set you back another £4.50. The restaurant is modern and well maintained in all areas; combined with good service it makes for a pleasant night out.

The choice of customisation for a completely unique burger is great but the food almost feels like quantity over quality. It's by far not the worst place in Barnstaple in fact, one of the better ones but it's hard to come away 100% satisfied.

I'm not sure why I haven't reviewed this sooner, but Matt and his team do a fantastic job and provide excellent customer care and service. The value for money is absolutely top notch, and the food is always beautifully cooked and presented, with unquestionnable quality. The "build your on burger" concept is prolific everywhere in the USA so it's nice to have this on our door step and it won't break your bank balance either. The online booking system they operate on their website is something we've not encountered anywhere else to date, and is just pure genius - you get immediate availability at your fingertips with a booking confirmation email within seconds; why can't all establishments do this?! Great food, excellent customer care, always a pleasure. If you haven't been - go! You have no idea what you're missing out on.

We had a very enjoyable evening and the service was very friendly.
The food was delicious, in particular our fillet steaks which were perfectly cooked and the nachos which were proper ones and not shop bought crisps!!!
The only downside is that the burgers are not as amazing, I think they could be a bit juicier but thats the only criticism!! We will definitely return :-)
