Went to Smokey’s recently for my brothers birthday, having been before, and was still just as tasty. I had the pulled pork and beef brisket combo; pulled pork was lovely, only thing I would mention is the brisket comes as a piece instead of shredded like the pulled pork, but was still very nice. You have to go!

Arrived and seated within 2 mins.
Instantly given a bottle of water.
Ordered 2 mins later and had a drink mor or less straight away and my meal in front of me within 5 mins !! Excellent service.

Pulled pork and chips, don't like coleslaw so offered salad. Massive portion, I could have shared this. Loads of chips and even more pulled pork. Very tasty, very nice. Staff very attentive. Great all round visit, I will recommended and I will be back.

Pulled pork & chips, pint of cobra £21.62
£14.95 for meal £4.70 for cobra.

Nice enough food which was overshadowed by horrendous 'customer service'.

The bad service started almost immediatly as we began to order drinks and asked for a couple of adjustments (no ice etc) these requests were met with eye rolls and sighs.

When the food arrived there were quite a lot of mistakes but as a group of 10 we did not want to send the food back and then have to wait again. We highlighted the errors to prevent being charged for things we did not order.

The food itself was nice and the portions really generous.

When the bill arrived and we worked out what we owed, the waiter told us that we still owed money. We all checked to ensure we'd included everything (service charge etc) but were confused as to why we still owed money as we had in fact, overpaid.

When we checked the bill again, the things we did not order had not been removed and another meal had been added on in addition. When we told the waiter he snapped back and said that we is charging for what came out of the kitchen! He could clearly see from the number of plates that we did not have the number of meals we were being billed for but refused to let us leave without paying.

We were then forced to pay for a meal we did not have because of their mistake.

The whole experience was REALLY embarrssing for us and we felt bullied into paying.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Me and 9 friends went to Smokey’s for lunch. Some of us ordered meals, others just had starters. When the food came out some meals were wrong, incorrect sides and cheese on chips etc. The bill then arrived and we had been overcharged. We had been charged for sides we hadn’t ordered and an extra meal. We advise the waiter of this and he said if it’s on the bill the kitchen have made it so will speak to them. We disputed this and told him to look at the plates (still in front of us as they hadn’t cleared the plates-poor service) eventually he came back and removed the burger but advised we still needed to pay extra. Would NOT recommend as waiter was very rude.
Food was average, large portions - lost of waste.

We ventured down to Smokey’s as we were staying in the hotel above. Both of us had some burgers, the beef brisket sandwich and calamari. Super tasty yummy food. Would recommend.
