    Van Winkles is a little gem. Took the kids, and the dog, and the husband out for his birthday. Their chicken and waffles are, quite simply, food that makes my soul happy. The little one loved her Mac and cheese and the grown ups ate more chicken wings, tenders, and loaded fries than should be allowed. Everything tastes incredibly fresh and like the kitchen take pride in what they do. Even the dog loved his chicken and pasta. Already hungry for our next visit.

    A wonderful meal although the waffles and ice cream never appeared but were still on the bill. Overcharged for extra cheese on burger. Suggestion was the menu price was wrong. All a bit disappointing after such a great meal. Will be back though. Tacos and wings were ace.

    Arrived at half 5 two adults and two dogs for dinner. Greeted at the door, shown to our table, and then taken through the whole experience via table service. Place was fairly quiet at half 5 but by the time we left the place was filling up well. Service was good, food quality also top notch. The place was warm and welcoming for us humans and our quiet dogs.

    Food was excellent - a very varied menu. Service was also first class, we were never kept waiting at any point. They were also very attentive to my friends dog and brought out a bowl of water on arrival for her - it was a VERY hot day. Highly recommend this place, especially handy for pre gig food & drinks if you're going to the Barras.

    Great food, great service. They had the builders in so the toilets were being refurbished but that was the only down side. Both the chilli burger and the pulled pork sandwich were delicious, although the plates were on the small side and chips kept falling off. We asked for a slight change to the pulled pork sandwich (different bread roll) and it was accommodated with no problem. Highly recommended if you fancy good bbq food. Great selection of beers, cider etc as well
