Was able to get booked in last minute and we weren’t disappointed! Food and service was fab! So pleased that restaurant service has resumed, it was such a treat to have this experience back after our long stretch of lockdown!

Food was great, service was personable and attentive and social distancing measures were clear. I was sad to see the brisket is no longer pulled, please change it back to how it was!

Absolutely loved it! Could only have been better if the sides were marked vegan, veggie etc but the food was incredible as per usual and we can’t wait to come back

Always a 5 star service, food is incredible. Social distancing measures were very professional yet didn’t dampen the restaurant experience. Thank you Smoke Pit!

It was great to see the smokepit busy in its first week of trading since reopening. It was a relaxed atmosphere and other than the staff wearing masks, it felt no different to our visit prior to lockdown. Food was fantastic particularly the marmite cheesy mash and although the smokepit platter beat us, we was able to take the rest home in a take out box

Was a little apprehensive about going out for food but chose to come to the smoke pit. Staff were friendly made sure we felt comfortable. The atmosphere felt the same from when we had been earlier in the year. Servers were efficient and friendly.
