The staff are nice and the shake tasted ok, but the service is not good waited forever for our freak shakes. They look nothing like the picture and the place is cold and dirty. The place is very run down but looks like it has a lot of potential of someone cared for it. I won’t be going back and my son was disappointed.

The food is great mostly. Some strange choices such as a crumb of blue cheese and button mushrooms placed on top of burger. All together though the parties are tasty and fries good too. The chicken burger was great. The milkshakes are fun too. The service could do with an overhaul. Table service would make a difference and just general keenness and interest in the food and customers.

The freakshake is not as it is presented on the picture. The store itself is very dirty and i did not feel comfortable inside at all.

The photos look better than the place actually is. The concept is great but the execution of this place was poor. It wasn’t worth the journey. The food was below average. I know it was only £9.50 but it was not a great burger.
