Food came out and was not piping hot. Very lukewarm. Service was ok. But kept waiting for a while. Atmosphere was good

Waiter was fab, friendly & helpful! Drinks a little over priced particulary cocktails first one lovely, second didn’t get all finishing touches on drink and at £8.00 plus expect to have that. Starters amazing, really enjoyed but main courses very disappointing dry over priced, and tasteless.

We did enjoy our visit, and would come again. However, felt at points that we were forgotton about. We also came on father's day, but weren't told of any specials. We ordered desserts. Our sons icecream came out, however it took over 10 mins for mine and hubby to arrive and only after we asked where ours were. Although the food was amazing, felt it was expensive. For 3 of us. So will be much be a visit on very special occasions.

Staff were attentive & food was nice, but small portions for the price (I had a fish taco & it was little bigger than the kids portion). Probably a cooler vibe later on in the evening.

A truthful review- I took the hubby & kids here for Fathers Day & will not be going again. To start they had no colouring in or anything for kids. This may sound silly but parents know that any little distraction for the kids can help have a peaceful meal. Why have a kids menu? I thought the meal was extremely over priced. The kids meal- for a main, drink & dessert (which you have to get seperately) your looking at no less than £10. We got the ‘death by sundea’ dessert and for £10 we expected a huge ice cream delight...... we were extremely disappointed! It was a standard Sundea?? Ridiculously over priced! The service.... was just plain annoying! Every 5 minutes we were asked if everything was ok? Again this may sound like a silly thing to moan about but it just got annoying and gave me the hump. Halfway through our Nachos sharing starter we were told the kids meals were ready? We didnt ask for them early so what was my choice? Have them fresh or let them dry out until ours were ready? So we said to bring them out and the waiter sat down at our table and waited until my hubby finished the last 3 nachos!!! I was gobsmacked!!! Bad customer service.

I felt the portions were small for the price and that the food was over cooked. The waiter was very friendly and helpful but struggled to manage and keep up with the tables demands. Had to wait quite a while to order and to get the bill paid. Hope it's just teething issues as its a new restaurant.

Waitress took order for starter and main course. Main courses arrived first, we had to tell staff we ordered starters. Starters arrived cold, Main course had cold Mac Cheese, rest of food was almost cold. Maybe because of the steel trays being used???. Pretty poor overall, only good thing was a young lad called Charles who was great with customers. Even though food was awful l made a point of giving Charles a personal tip and thanked him for the way he looked after all customers. A shame that because of the food we won't be going back

What an amazing night! I was with a friend from London and was so pleased to be able to take her to such a great venue in Milton Keynes. We were both very impressed and stayed for a few cocktails in the bar until closing time after our meal as were having such a great time! I'll be showing my new favourite restaurant off to a lot of other friends in the future!

Went with wife and baby for a lunchtime meal, lovely venue, looks great inside. Staff friendly. The main issue being that our food order didn't go through to the kitchen and this wasn't realised for at least 45 minutes. Once picked up, there was further confusion caused by a lack of communication between the waiting staff that delayed my Pulled Pork fries further. By this time I was massively late getting back to work and left with the Pulled Pork fries without paying after checking with the boss. The pulled pork fries were delicious and absolutely stuffed me rotten! It's their first week, mistakes happen, it's how you handle them that counts and it was a bit muddy without much ownership. Shout out to the guy who looks a bit like Rivers Cuomo as he made the best attempt to straighten things out. Still keen to go back as everybody else looked like they were having a good time with the burgers and burritos all looking pretty top notch.

Second visit, and have to say that they must find consistency. The food on our first visit was excellent but this time it most definitely did not hit the same highs. The potential is there but they must concentrate on the food quality

The food itself was lovely. However felt portion sizes we not worth the money. Combo with 2 sides - very small portions. Was left slightly disappointed

First visit and will definately visit again. My wife tried squid for the first-time and she loved it. I had the ribs and brisket combi with beans and mac and cheese. My wife had the chicken waffle burger. All absolutely delicious. I had a chocolate pudding with a smore and she had ice cream. The only downside is the price of the beer. Very nice lad serving us called Mark. He was very cheerful and helpful.
