Busy city centre bar serving smokehouse food and plenty of craft beer with upstairs function space to hire.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016/17 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Combining a bar, restaurant and upstairs function-room 'nest’, this busy city centre pub is deceptively spacious with squishy booths for dining and slim tables for perching drinks. Cocktails are cheap and craft beer is plentiful, with staff enthusiastically reeling off tasting notes for the four rotating guest kegs. If you can't choose between the many draught, bottles and cans there are both craft beer and cask ale tasting planks. The US-inspired menu encompasses burgers, hot dogs, burritos and deli subs with the smokehouse serving up brisket, ribs and pulled meats on tin trays. You know they take their meat seriously when tables are equipped with sauce racks, and dainty napkins have been replaced by full kitchen rolls. Baby back ribs boast a fiery glaze and the three and a half hours the chicken has spent in the smoker means the tender meat just falls off the bones.

  • High point: Excellent service from personable staff
  • Low point: Sides quality doesn't match the meat
  • Notable dish: Baby back ribs, smoked and glazed with BBQ sauce
  • Private dining: Up to 30 covers
  • Provides: Children's portions, Children's high chairs, Wheelchair access, Free wi-fi
  • Music on stereo: Alternative and indie.
  • Capacity: 140
  • Largest group: 80
  • Open since: 2014
  • Number of wines sold by the glass: 6
  • House wine: £8.99 per bottle
