Went here with my girlfriend for her birthday as she really enjoys her Burgers and wanted to try somewhere new, suffice to say won't be coming back.

Firstly waiter was very nice but I think the manager was interviewing someone while we were in and god was he loud, I now know that the franchise was established 3 years ago and that bedminster restaurant opened 2 years ago, that one of the chefs from whiteladies was moving to bedminster in Decemeber as he was taking over as head chef in January, that its not like a normal restaurant that they're ncie to each other in the kitchen.

Anyway onto the food, wow do you get a lot but thats not a good thing if you can't get it write, sweet potato fries was basically someone chopping a whole sweet potato up into sticks and serving it, the buns were soggy and damp with grease, the burgers weren't cooked properly and tasted rubbery and to top it all off my partner and i both felt ill for the rest of the night thanks to this.

As stated above won't be going again

The option to build your own burger is what attracted us. The food was incredible. I choose a Kangaroo Burger with Swiss cheese, Bacon and Jalapenos. My wife had a Peri Peri Chicken with Guacamole, Tortillas and Roasted Red Pepper. Burgers were juicy, fries were crispy and Onion Rings were perfect. Service was friendly and quick. Simply fantastic. We will definitely be visiting again when we are back in Bristol. It is a shame there isn't one near Plymouth!

The food is amazing and the options of making your own burger is great.
Unfortunately they have no idea of what great customer service is and how to make a customer happy!

It’s a shame as everything else is really good.

Have been here loads as I live very close always good food and reasonably priced, number of options is amazing.

Sometimes can take an age for the food but probably due to the vast amount of optoins, and one time they lost the order somehow but

Went here with a friend for burgers before a film. We had been really looking forward to eating here based on the previous good reviews on this site. Unfortunately however, the burgers we were served were pretty terrible. The buns were dry with a stale texture and both our burgers were dry and over-cooked - a long way from the juicy slabs of perfection served at some of Bristol's other burger bars. Service on the other hand was good - the woman who served us was friendly and quick to offer us a discount when she learned we hadn't really enjoyed the meal. Overall though not a great experience.
