The ultimate burger was ultimately magnificent. Possibly the best burger I've ever had. The sirloin was good too though they had run out of the t-bone I had wanted to order. The milkshake selection is unbelievable though 2 of the 3 were so sweet they...More

Was really disappointed with the burgers, not up to expectations at all. The sliders were burnt, hard and dry, but the second attempt was better. Not overcooked the second time but bland and underwhelming. The chicken burger was also dry and crispy but my young...More

Had lunch at this place nothing fancy just a burger and shake joint. The burgers are very big, juicy and tasty. The prices are right and so was the service. A nice clean place to take in lunch and chill.

Description
After 2 years of perfecting the perfect burger, we have a range of Gourmet Burgers as well as amazing succulent fall-off-the-bone ribs (pork, beef & lamb). We have just launched another 17 shakes to our already 40 Gourmet Shake range, which include Chocolate Brownie shake, Cheesecake shake as well as a huge flavour of fruit shakes (Blueberry, Summerburst & Black Cherry to name a few) and now also Gingerbread, Malva&Custard and Orange Blossom
