We do like the place and last time we visited we had a good experience. This time however there were a few things that we felt could be improved (Sat 26th July @ 19:00). Having reserved a table we were told on arrival we may have to share the table. Kinda defeats the object of reserving a table in our... More

I've been going to the Burger Joint since its days on Cotham Hill and I enjoy every visit! The burgers are simply delicious and the selection of toppings and sides means that you'll never run out of new combinations.This time I went for the Peri chicken with brie/bacon/jalapeños with chilli sauce and garlic mayo and a side of coleslaw -...

Went in for our burger fix while in Bristol. Cheeseburgers, fries, onion rings, milkshakes. Taste: All okay. Nothing special unfortunately. Price: On the expensive side for burgers. Service: Really good. Fast. No reservations. Yet able to seat us right away on a Monday night. Took advantage of quaint outside seating. (Inside seating available.) Serving size: On small side. Selection: Good... More

Attended mid afternoon with family. Very welcoming to my 8 month old son and quite attentive with drinks and food. Garlic bread starter was delicious, I had the wild boar burger with chorizo and pulled pork for a main. The wife had chicken with bacon and cheese. Not enough chorizo or pulled pork but the thick cut chips were plentiful.... More

Wonderful service despite being very busy and very obliging staff who prepared me a vegan meal with very little notice. Delicious burger, amazing variety of sauces and would really recommend the sweet potato chips, they are out of this world! Will definitely be going again.

The concept of building your own burger and the variety on the menu make this place a place we'll probably visit again despite the lack of service and atmosphere. It is conveniently located on Whiteladies Rd and has a nice outside area, however this fills up quickly on summer evenings and we had to sit inside. We visited on a... More

Got to say, we were all pretty disappointed, the service was sloppy, we had to move tables 3times eventhough we booked, they got half our orders wrong! Burger was dry, bread soggy, salad was one peice of lettuce. Deffo wont return ...

I visited Bristol on business and was craving a good burger. I researched the Burger Joint on here and decided I had to give it a try. I'm so glad that I did! It was undoubtedly one of the best burgers I have ever had. Bold statement. I know. However, I'm certain you will agree with me when you give... More

We all decided we wanted a burger last Friday night but not just a standard fast food take away joint. So we thought we'd spend that bit extra and go for burger joint. This is the second time we thought we'd give this place a go. First time was average second was horrid. Sweet potato fries weren't even cooked or... More
