five stars



Battles of the BBQ, days of burnt sausages, burgers and undercooked chicken are over, Spitfire has landed. Our mission set by the General is to bring you prime cut meats and Monster Ribs, smoked and grilled over hot coals. We don't waste our time making food look pretty on the plate, our mission is to bomb your taste buds with flavours and damn good BBQ. PitBoss( our BBQ), is on a mission to save his troops from collecting dust in the winter and changing the British perception that BBQ's are only meant for the summer. After a long battle at work we will take you away from the stresses of the city, with smoked meats, cold beers and creative cocktails whilst sat around our fire pits or standing around the BBQ listening to some good tunes.
