“Nice place. Great atmosphere. Love the event nights they have. A great way to encourage people to go. Would be nice to have more events where people can go to on their own. They need to do something about the step everyone keeps tripping over though.”- JacintaG

Smokin Barry’s Slow Cooked BBQ Diner
Smokin Barry’s Slow Cooked BBQ Diner is a barbeque with a different taste, flavour. The 3 main differences are summed up with 3 single words…low, slow and smokey. Smokin’ Barry’s barbeque gives meat the time to have the flavours introduced. Because they use lower temperatures, the meat doesn’t dry out and remains succulent. They use special spice rubs to act as a marinade before cooking. They mop the meat during the cooking process with flavoured sauces to add more flavour and to retain and enhance the natural moistness of the meat.
Sandwich Bar, Pasta, Burgers & Fries, Salad Dishes, Variety of Slow Cooked BBQ Meat.
“Fantastic food. The brisket is brilliant nice and juicy and flavourful. The buns are both soft and chewy with a really crispy outside. The serving sizes are just right so if you have a brisket sandwich for lunch you don’t feel over stuffed an sleepy. Thoroughly satisfying.”- Colin Williamson
