Cuisine: Barbeque, Grill
Price Point: Mains from €10 - €20

Slow and steady wins the race and over at Holy Smoke, low-and-slow reigns victorious every time. Serving heavenly meat and veggie plates from a pit-smoked BBQ, eating here is akin to a religious experience.

If you don't know your cow, have no fear, there's a wonderfully informative, giant illustration of a cow on a wall in the restaurant with every cut labelled for your convenience! Not only that, there are cheery lightbulbs, an informal bar and tables big enough to squeeze on your chopping boards laden with meaty goodness.

Warm up the stomach with some small plates, like their sticky BBQ chicken wings, fire-grilled prawns, ox cheek or some veggie-friendly mac n' cheese melts and spicy couscous with pesto and pumpkin seeds. Then for the mains, your stomach better be ready for an absolute feast!

Get messy with some baby back ribs or a pit-smoked BBQ chicken. Want something with a bit of bite? Go for the brisket burnt ends or opt for an expertly cooked steak with grilled onions and mushrooms. There are burgers too, like the classic juicy Lucy, the mammoth king pig or donut burger with two patties buried under crispy onions and smoky bacon. Food coma, is that you?

Reviews

We arrived at Holy Smoke in a torrential downpour, despite just opening it was warm and cosy inside . We were seated at a table for 4- this was great as I'm nearly 2m tall and struggle to fit on a small table.
The staff were friendly and attentive , we quickly had water and wine bought to the table, with the starters arriving shortly after. The sharing plates are a great idea and we were sitting in a pile of bare ribs and chicken bones, wiping sauce up. Mains were equally as good, there was a small error with our order but this was probably more down to my thick Birmingham accent than anything else. It was rectified immediately. All the food we tried was great, can't fault the top service either, we would definitely eat here again.

Great atmosphere, great and friendly service, super food and meat sweats :-)

We had starters and the sharing platter. It was a bit much but luckily we took the leftovers home and could enjoy it the next day. We would go again any day.
