Our first visit to Meat Monsters, won’t be our last. The food, service and overall ambiance was excellent. If you haven’t paid a visit to Meat Monsters don’t delay, the food really is amazing as are all the sauces etc all of which are made in house from the best quality ingredients. Look forward to our next visit.

Loved the food HUGE helpings, cooked fresh and served with a smile. I hope the website is up and running soon as we found using the app tricky but maybe the more we use it the more comfortable we’ll be using it. We’ve already recommended to friends and will be back sampling more good grub!

Absolutely amazing as always. They were running a little late with our order which we pre ordered but this wasn’t a problem for us. The very kind and attentive waiter (wish I remembered his name) gave us nachos with brisket for free to keep us going. Can’t speak more highly of him he really is the nicest guy and even remembered us from our last visit. Food is amazing and never had anything bad to say about it apart from the portions are generous and Iv yet to be able to finish my whole meal. Will be back for sure. Kids also loved it.

Excellent food,service,friendly and welcoming staff.Easy to book and pre order.Only reason I scored the ambiance lower was no fault of the staff or premises.Due to current situation it was not busy.I imagine in normal circumstances it would be a fabulous fun place to spend an evening.We look forward to going back.

From the moment we arrived and were directed to our table you could tell this was going to be good. The smells were amazing and the owner so enthusiastic about their food. And we were not disappointed!! The food was amazing, so delicious, tender and with so much flavour. The highlights were the Rib Tips, bite sized explosions of taste and the Brisket which was so well cooked with amazing flavours! We will be back and soon ☺️
