Got some lunch here after Junk Yard Golf on Bank Holiday Monday, if I am honest, it wasn't my first choice (Mother Clucker was) but as that was closed this was the close second. It was a reasonably busy late lunch service, however I feel that they could have been slightly better prepared for it. The first few things we asked for were sold out, when we finally settled on two Fat Controllers we were told the wait would be 30 minutes.  In a restaurant that would be fine but for a street food pop up where you only sell a couple of items and most of them are sold out, I feel like this is a bit ridiculous.  When we got the burgers they were nice, nothing spectacular but nice.  I had also specifically asked for a side order of fries rather than the add on order of fries (which is about half the size and we were planning on sharing) but in the end got the smaller portion, I was too hungry to put up a fight.  They were out of most of the sauces they offer as well and snapped at a few people who came up to ask about the food (also partly why I didn't want to argue about the fries!).  I will go back another time and give it another go, maybe they were having a bad day but really they should have been better prepared and there is never an excuse to snap at customers who ask reasonable questions (like 'how long is the wait for food?')

Normally I would go Orange Buffalo when round these parts for lunch.. but pulled pork was calling my name so I had to give into its dirty pleasure. So fantastically moorish-- I almost forgot I had it with a salad (that makes it healthy right?). Love these guys so much and so glad this little lunch spot is still around!

Gotta say I wasn't expecting much from this place, but wow was I wrong. One of the most novel dining experiences I've had in my 15+ years of eating out.  Excellent staff, excellent food, excellent venue.  Haven't stopped telling my mates about it.  Going back for round 2 asap. 

Amazing BBQ, in a railway cabin, with 90s hiphop? YES PLEASE!

What a night! We had a private party here (that's all they do) 3 days ago and people are still talking about it. The food is tasty and indulgent but fairly simple. The atmosphere is one of the best private dining experiences I've had. We got to play all our favourite tracks from school years and they let us stay pretty late. BYOB means it's pretty affordable too. 4* food, 5* atmosphere


I'm surprised this place doesn't have any reviews here- then again they did ask if we reviewed to do it on tripadvisor?
