Wow! I love my barbecue and I loved Shotgun! I was slightly disappointed to have missed the brunch/lunch menu, so it turned into an early dinner, but it was delicious! My friend and I ordered a few dishes to share, including burnt ends (excellent), suckling pig, Mac & cheese and a side of broccoli and cornbread. I must say, everything was excellent.

I didn't enjoy;
£5.50 for a can of beer. YES A CAN.
The pork belly - which didn't really have any flavour
The peanut humous - again lacking flavour.
But I can forgive those things as I just...more
