    Excellent food, customer service and ambience. Chicken was succulent, tender and tasty! Fat cut chips was absolutely superb. Pork ribs were yummy with smokey spicy sauce, however the pork ribs were not as tender but rather bit dry and tough. Overall a very good dining experience!

    Elegant and classy restaurant. Service was at a high level, very engaging and friendly staff and took time to speak to their customers. Staff definitely knew the menu and no question from us was too hard of a bother. Food was delicious, and the sides were also delicious. Amazing flavors in all our food. Wine was lovely! Will Definitely go back and introduce this restaurant to other friends! Thankyou for a great night!

    Our evening was beautiful. It was my boyfriend's birthday. The restaurant's atmosphere was good, all dining tables were set with flowers and candles. The staffs were friendly and lovely, they helped me to surprised my boyfriend and we sang the birthday song together for him. The food was excellent! (Especially the Mexican chili squid and the Signature chili chicken is pretty flavorful, really love them!). We've thoroughly enjoyed our dinner in Hoosegow! Really want to share this place to everyone around me!

    Thank you, the Hoosegow team! My partner and I had a wonderful meal, and the Mollydooker was excellent! (It was served perfectly, as it should be ;) ). I've been wanting to get said partner out to your restaurant for a while, and I'm glad we had the chance to dine with you before the harsh restrictions on non essential businesses went ahead. Fingers, toes, and any other malleable body parts are crossed for a speedy recovery, industry-wide. We'll see you again after the storm has been weathered. Keep your spirits up and your limoncellos high! All the best, take care. :) x

About the restaurant

Prisoners of Food

If you go gooey over succulent chargrilled meats which have been loaded with spice and laden with finger licking sauce, then you can't go wrong with Hoosegow Charcoal. Hoosegow - which translates to ‘jail’ in english - has certainly captured our hearts and our tastebuds. Here they’re serving a blend of Latin American, Asian and Eastern flavours in damn fine fashion. For the ultimate dish try their signature chilli chicken which is deliciously smoky and spicy. What more can we say, its simple charcoal deliciousness!
