We went for lunch, the servers were friendly and attentive, the prices were reasonable, the burgers were delicious, the beer was definitely not flat and the premises were clean. There was an ample crowd, many of whom seemed to be regulars who presumably would not...More

The last visit was a decade ago, when burgers were not as established. We had different burgers, chips, which were not outstanding like say Englewood. Definitely not like it once was in the past. Felt like frozen meat pate.

Nice place, the service & food OK not fantastic, I like the quirky decor + nice terrace for the summer.

Decent burgers (even if they have to contend with nearby Burger star restaurant Inglewood) and more importantly plenty of sitting room both inside and outside makes this place quite appealing on a warm evening if you fancy non fuss and good value food and drinks.
