Blue’s Smokehouse

Home of Mighty Fine Dining!

Blue’s is a place where you roll-up your sleeves and get stuck-in to a menu full of American smokehouse favourites, southern specials, burgers galore and more. All our BBQ Classics are smoked in-house over hickory wood and served-up on big old platters.

From our imported American smokers (tucked-away around the back) to our award-winning executive chef our focus is on serving authentic flavours in a relaxed, fun and informal atmosphere.

We don’t stand on ceremony, in fact, we smoke it and serve it as a snack! Dinner at Blue’s is about loosening your belt, getting a crowd together and enjoying wallet-friendly feasts with your friends and family.

Find your nearest Blue’s Smokehouse in Bracknell, Twickenham and soon Slough.
