Meet “Agnes,” at Cleaver & Co, the queen of Southern Pride BBQ meat smokers, brought over all the way from Tennessee to show you how slow smoked perfection should be served.

Watching your food being prepared in the large open kitchen by the Pit Master from a comfy seat, in a room that has all the cosiness of a log cabin. You can’t get much closer to Tennessee without boarding a plane.

The menu covers all manner of authentic BBQ dishes, all placed gently over indirect heat from a wood fire for up to 14 hours so they naturally infuse with the smoke. Try spiced cauliflower and crispy boneless wings before tucking into a prime sirloin steak, or keep it simple with the famous smoked brisket burger.

Remember to leave space for lime coconut cheesecake, or forget the rest and fall head over heels with their snickers sundae: peanuts, oreo cookie, caramel and whipped cream…the choice is yours.

Wash it all down with a jug of refreshing tap beer or carefully chosen wine for the perfect evening with friends. Celebrating something special? Treat yourself to a cheerful bottle of bubbles for a night to remember at Cleaver & Co.

And remember, it’s all down to Agnes, who never sleeps. Even if they’re not open, she will be busy smokin’.
