Food has improved since the last time we visited, some years ago. The chicken bombs in particular. The staff were great, and the food was, amazing. crispiest chips ever. Wow. The Only suggestion, from my mother who attended is to expand the drinks menu, and maybe feature a 'Meat shack special cocktail.' We will come back!

Had a pre-theatre lunch because the Meat Shack was recommended to us. All six of us really enjoyed our main courses. The variety of flavours were brilliant and pleased everyone from those who liked a milder taste to those who liked their burgers with more bite. House wine was great. Ice cream flavours unusual but good. Service friendly and efficient. Only slight disappointment was there was no option to have coffee. Will definitely be going back.

Absolutely loved our visit to Meat Shack. The burgers were really some of the best any of us had eaten anywhere (and we've tried a lot of burgers out across the world). My RnB burger was seriously tasty and the Chicken Bombs were incredible. The service was brilliant, attentive, polite but not in your face. The range of beers, all local, was great and it was fab to eat in a such buzzing, friendly place.
