  • Service was spot-on. Good range and quality of drinks. Menu was very quirky. A few 'unexplained definitions, but otherwise plenty of choice. If you love your Mac n cheese American style this is right up your street. If not, ask for cheddar, they're happy to oblige. Burger cooked to perfection. Moist and heavy. Maybe a glossary on the wall would help with the menu, otherwise brilliant...
  • Great variety of burgers - While the menu changes a little too frequently for my liking it never fails to impress. Personal favourite, which is no longer available was the Kimcheese burger. Truly divine.
  • Good atmosphere and food, shame about the price of the food
  • Staff were friendly, burger was brilliant, really tasty and plenty of flavours, the chips were rubbish, went for a cheese sauce. £4.50 for a small cup with a bland cheese sauce, not as good as McDonald's chips I don't like McDonald's.
  • Helpful staff. Swift service. Nice restaurant interior. Having g never been ' Byroned' before I would happily go back
