“Still knocking out great burgers with a retro feel – the relish selection harks back to the 1970s”. This “great local burger joint” in Stockbridge which celebrates its half-centenary this year is “always reliable and never changes”. “The staff are rushed off their feet, but they’re always really professional and smiley”.

This “basic” Stockbridge institution is an “old-time favourite” (est 1972) that, bar a brief BYOB phase long ago, “hasn’t changed over the years (but in a good way)”; “as always great for burger and chips”, although the menu extends to haggis sides and sundaes too.
