We are unique in our combination of quality and value. We´re serious about food, and want everything here to be the highest standard and best quality – burgers, sides, salads or drinks. We´re convinced that you´ll agree that the quality and value are outstanding. Others clearly agree – over the 3 years we have had some outstanding reviews and have consistently been among Tripadvisor´s top-rated restaurants in Bristol (including, from time to time, No 1). And we were judged Bristol's top burger restaurant in the 2013 Bristol Good Food Awards, and by a number of national newspapers and sites. Click here to see some of the reviews.
As our reputation has grown over the years so too has the number of our customers, and in 2012 we moved from our original restaurant on Cotham Hill to larger premises in Whiteladies Road. And in order to meet the continually increasing demand in May 2014 we opened our second restaurant in North Street, Bedminster.
Whether you dine in our licensed restaurants, or take your food away, we can guarantee you an outstanding experience.
We are pleased to announce that our plans for our third restaurant - in Fishponds - are coming to fruition, and we hope to open at the end of the summer. Our bid for the premises - the present card shop - has been accepted, and there's just the small issue of persuading the Council to grant planning permission! So do write in and support our application. We will provide more details - of the reference number etc - as soon as we have it.
As is well known, McDonalds has been stuggling lately. When the BBC World Service were doing a programme about this for their Economics Weekly, they attributed this to the rise of the Independent quality burger restaurants - and who did they identify to represent this trend?

Our restaurants have become very busy, and we hate to turn people away, so it's always best to ring ahead and book. If you turn up and there's no table we're often able to take your phone number to call when one becomes available. Please note though that in Bedminster we only take bookings for groups of 6+ (and not at all on Friday or Saturday after 6.00 pm) so it's always worth trying there.
