Had about a 20 minute wait at half past 1 on a Saturday so it does get extremely busy although they told us half an hour wait so we were pleased with only a 20 minute one! Very crowded bar area to wait for your table but the bar staff were friendly and served you quickly. The waiter was very... More

Booked three tables of 6 online; phoned to confirm on the day, and was told that they only had one table booked. Eventually the manager sorted it out. Whilst admittedly we came in with a large group, it took an hour and 15 minutes for the first food to start coming out. At 9.30pm, this is frankly ridiculous. When the... More

First the staff are the best I've seen so nice and ready to help when you are ready to order asking if your comfortable or want more drinks. We ordered the bucket of bones as an appetizer and it was simply amazing the best thing i have ate in a long time the jack Daniel's sauce made it satisfying. For... More

Very busy Saturday evening as expected. Told 30 min wait for a table which it was so that was fine. Sat down and ordered and waited 45 minutes for our food which was just main courses. We asked twice how long our food would be, the first time we didn't get a response from a waiter. When our food eventually... More

I went there with my husband and daughter for a dinner and the service was great we were welcomed by a nice guy , the food came quickly but the children menu' needs to be better as we ordered the hamburger with chips and it was nearly burned and hard. Also the music was to loud and to much rock

Not only was I waiting for an hour for a table but when we eventually sat down I ordered food within 10 mins. When the food came I asked for a hotdog with no mustard but ketchup because I don't like mustard they said that was fine when it came it was covered in mustard but we had already waited... More

wow, didnt expect too much fuss for sons birthday meal but was pleasantly surprised, the staff went that bit extra to make his meal special.Food is the usual TGI menu, must say the Jack Daniels burgers are great. Son had a free cake (gateau) delivered to the table and a few waiters sang him happy birthday, great time

Had lunch here yesterday and the food was excellent. Crispy duck fajitas! Never had them before and they were a huge serving.

Title says it all really. At £13-14 for a burger, I expected great things. Unfortunately it was like a bit of leather (under the lights too long) the cheese on top had gone rock hard (under lights too long). Considering it was a 'pulled pork burger' there was about a teaspoon's worth of pulled pork on top. The quality was... More

Ate here before going to the cinema and I ordered the beef short rib. It is possibly the best thing on the menu. It is very tasty and the portion size is huge. The jack Daniels glaze is yummy. The staff were friendly and quick. I will be ordering get this again.
