I had heard so many good things about Hot Box! A few of us gathered for its legendary meat! The menu and offering is simple and delicious. Unfortunately we suffered from a waiter who couldn't really manage. We ordered an IPA on his recommendation. What turned up was cloudy citrus beer. Then when we tasted it and questioned it, he said it was out and they just decided to serve something else. Then when we changed it the next beer was out, too! The whole way through this poor guy couldn't get anything right. The food was good but nothing I would rave about, everything seemed a little dry which is the opposite of what I was hoping for. The waiter, knowing we weren't having the best of experiences had the cheek to put service on the bill. Could be a great experience but must try harder!

Thoroughly enjoyed the food and drinks here and service pretty good considering it was clearly very busy but found the benches very uncomfortable and stifling to sit on and eat a meal! 4 of us crowded onto a small bench wasn’t ideal and made eating rather difficult. The food quality was very high, beef slider absolutely delicious and the servers even brought out more wings after making a mistake with the first batch and letting us keep them free of charge. Decent spot for a drink or 2 as well, good location. Would definitely go again.

HotBox used to be the best smokehouse in London. It had the best burger (I am referring to the Bandit burger of course...) and ribs in the City. These days are gone ... Now it serves below average ribs, a decent burger and really bad fries and sides. Deep fried Oreo was epic. How did you manage to ruin it??? Really disappointed :( This place was the temple of smoked meat

Very good. Good food, decent BBQ outfit, service could have been sharper, I’m sure they could have got more drinks out of us! We were a group 14 however, great pork belly ribs, excellent brisket fries and great mac & cheese. The soft shell crab slider was incredible.
