Would recommend wholeheartedly. With the venue next door it is pretty noisy, but for a team event really good. Food was amazing - I'd go back for the brisket alone.

I’m a big bbq fan and a regularly smoke meat, and I’m not sure how authentic this is. The atmosphere was good and nice cosy feel with the kitchen open in front of u. I had the brisket which comes in a thick gravy that was quite sickly (never had brisket like this before and I’ve eaten a lot), another person had the large rib platter that some bits were tasty but the items like the baby back ribs were tough and overly glazed. The last meal was the pulled pork burger which was actual really tasty, the mac and cheese was also really good.
There were lots of ppl having a good time, seemed to be enjoying their food, but for me personally it’s was far from a smoked bbq meal.

It's a nice spot just off Kingston town centre offering great BBQ ribs and burgers. It has a nice pub too with great varities of whiskey.

The best BBQ I’ve had for a long time. We always bring family and friends here and recently also came here for Sunday lunch. They even bbq the joints of meat and they are AMAZING! This time we came on a Monday for Rib night - a bargain and just as delicious as always. We will be back!

The place and setting is lovely. Unfortunately for me I was not able to eat as I suffer from food allergies and they were not able to cater for me. The Chef has not considered this.

The food was fantastic.
Service was fine although one negative was that they forgot our order, however when we highlighted this they were very quick to rectify this & in fact then removed the starter from the bill so very impressed with their resolution.

Food was good although it did lack ambience. Would have enhanced the experience is they played some background music. The most disappointing element of the night was the service which was extremely slow, getting orders wrong and forgetting others.

This is the first time I've been to SMOK'D. I can't believe we had such a great pub/restaurant on our doorstep, all the reviews were spot on, the food was great and the service excellent. The dishes were so well made and the whiskeys numerous, we will definately be going back for more! Well done all staff!

White chocolate cocktail tasted very strange, not at all sweet as the waitress said.
Limited choice in pudding menu if you didn't like overly sweet food

Mains were fab

Absolutely brilliant. Food is superb and stands out as quality big city food in a small town. Add to that staff who add personality and a clear passion for their job and it is highly recommended. Oh and we took the kids and they loved it and the staff were amazing with them.

We would definitely recommend this restaurant, the food was great. Good Whisky selection and craft beers. It was a Friday night so we also had tickets booked for the comedy club at the back of the restaurant. This is a great venue for a night out with good food and drinks. Would definitely go back again.

Normally a really great place to go for food. Booked a table last Saturday 2nd Feb for 7 in the restaurant area. Service was first class as always. Starters were fine and some of us who had brisket were fine, but myself and two others went for the ribs options, baby back and jacobs ladder and these were very salty and very dry. We had to ask for the sauce which should come as standard. Sauces used to be on the table but seems that's changed now. A bit dissapointing because historically the food there is one of the best BBQ experiences you can have in the greater London area. Will be back but I felt we should let the kitchen know things were a bit below par on the night.

Not anymore...
New menu has gone away from the pure meat bbq feast that my friends and I used to enjoy. Brisket in oil... fatty meat... MASSIVELY too salty (my father sent his back Is was that bad).

This place used to be the best meal out, I would happy go there for my birthday, or even my last ever meal!!! Now... I wouldn’t go there again it’s gone to rubbish.

The ambiance and drinks are still fantastic but the show stopping food, I mean out of this world Jacobs ladder, is now a salty burnt bit of fatty meat.

I hope this place gets it right again but I won’t be going back anytime soon... until it does.

I loved the grey horse... but now it’s “meh”

Deceitful web site.... this is not a restaurant, just the back of a pub. A self-declared British brasserie serving mediocre American style BBQ. Greasy food thrown on a plate with no refinement. A milk shake for dessert well describes the anguish of this eating experience. The friendly service could not make up for the disappointing food served here. Modestly priced, but it could not be otherwise. To be carefully avoided.

Was recommended this place by a relative as was going to watch their gig in the Ram Jam Club, all we can say is wow. The food was amazing, just had a starter to share and then a main course each, couldn't have eaten anymore. Great food, good service and nice atmosphere, then topped off by the Never the Bride gig afterwards. Top night.
