Great food, very tasty ribs. Chicken was a bit dried out. A bit expensive, but we keep going back for more!

Good... Won't say no. But my socks stayed on... They weren't knocked off. Ribs need more sauce, more interesting... A touch dry. Brisket and pulled pork is the same type of average. However... Sides were good and good

I've been twice and both times I left semi-satiated and wholly unimpressed. The food wasn't particularly hot and though the service was great, we won't be back.

Great choice for a carry out meal for 6- so loved the ribs, rolled brisket, chicken wings, cheese scones. Plenty left over for the next day. Our hosts advised that it's a new place and they run a local butchers. Excellent and like the name...More
