I called to make a time change for my reservation and the phone was answered promptly, politely and able to make my change with no problem. It is a very nice setting in The Hub in Milton Keynes, with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating plus a bar area. Food and drink orders were taken in good time and were served quickly. Great menu selection and I highly rate this food, portion sizes are definitely a good size so arrive hungry! Only downside I had was no apple juice available and a bit slow to get the bill paid but nothing that dampened the experience.

We booked a table for 8 and were given a booth for 6, the place was not full We then waited 40min for drinks and my friend went and asked and was told yes there coming and pointed to them sat on the bar.... no apology The food came out and compared to other bbq places was very average, overall a disappointing experience

Staff were all great, seemed to want to be there and was passionate about the food. NO STEAK ON THE MENU!!! Shocking for a bbq place. The meat was dry and in some cases bland. The hallumoi bite starter was great

Poor Pornstar Martini compared to other operators within the hub Waiter (who was new 2nd shift) was friendly but didn't understand our gripe about the quality of our meal and cocktails - so just said " at least your prosecco was ok!" of course it was, someone just needed to pop a cork on it! Baby ribs were very tough and we couldn't eat them, brisket was nice but cold. Waffle Chicken Burger was stodgy and coleslaw was warm. The waiter checked back before my friend had even cut into her food!! Emily duty manager came over, we discussed our concerns as it was a really poor experience, we expected much more from our visit but it just didn't deliver! She made us 2 complimentary cocktails of which were so different than the bar supervisor had made us when we first arrived, we could taste the alcohol for one! Such a shame it was a poor visit as was thinking of booking for 12 people for a birthday next month

This is my second visit to C&C and this one was a million times better than the first... Tracey was our hostess and she was attentive and funny, a great asset to have mingling with customers Food was spot on, we had nachos to start and I had the Pit Beast...I was sadly defeated by the meat and suffered the meat sweats after...lol Thanks to the C&C Team for a lovely evening

An average affair -cocktails were watery and bland -pulled pork was tastey -loved the beef brisket and buttermilk chicken -beef sausages got a great chilli kick -mac and cheese bland and watery -nothing dirty about the rice -coleslaw average -50/50 are great! Service was slow and unattentive. The music was loud and there was no atmosphere for dinner. A shame.

Great service! I’m gluten free and another member of the party is dairy free and the staff were very helpful and well informed about ingredients in the items ordered! Food was fantastic and a large range of choice for people with dietary requirements. The restaurant is very clean and looks great. Shame it wasn’t very busy but hopefully that will change once the word gets out how great it is! Is not cheap but not super expensive either but the portions are pretty big so we left with a doggy bag! I will be recommending this place to friend and family! Well done and hope it sticks around!

Overall good restaurant and service It was unexpectedly busy for a Wednesday night so food came out slower but they offered us a free round of drinks for being patient which was nice Chloe, our waitress was very helpful and was great at recommending items from the menu as well as joining in with the laughs on our table it was a good birthday celebration i will defiantly come again

Fantastic service - really friendly.. not just the lady who served us but other servers in the area also had a chat with us when passing our table which was lovely. Food amazing, the beef brisket melted in the mouth. The highlight of the visit for us this time, however, was the Papa Smurf drink... i'd love for this to be made a permanent menu option :-) Will be back very soon and definitely recommend to others.

I booked a table for ten people, we turned up and the table was set and everything ready. We ordered drinks, the beer I had was very nice, one of the ladies ordered a gin with lemonade and it turned up with tonic, this was eventually replaced with an apology but it seemed it was a sign of things to come. When it came to the food, mine was delicious, the ribs are amazing as is the pulled pork, brisket & wings. We had a vegetarian amongst us who's meal was brought and was cold, this was then sent back, the next version which came had an element in which wasn't supposed to be in there, this was then taken away and fixed, by which point a lot of us had already eaten a large amount. Another member of our group had ordered a burrito with pork in but got it with chicken but having seen the issues experienced by other members of the group decided to just eat it rather than have to endure the fuss. Given the amazing quality of the food I have to say this let the side down a bit. It would seem if you want to go for Ribs & Beer then you're onto a winner, if you start going for other things then you may encounter problems.

Service was good to be fair But the food is terrible For a restaurant that advertises themselves as a smoke house and grill type place It was seriously poor and heavily overpriced Some of the beers are decent But i think brewdog opening around the corner will be far superior I haven't had such a shite meal out for a long time. You need to step it up
