Lovely grub, bit slow

Like many reviewers I come here often because the food is so obviously well sourced and cooked. Stinky Breath is the one for me.. delicious. Only down side is the wait times.. can be pretty long, but then you're in a pub garden so its not the end of the world. Price is high but thats a... read more

To the people moaning about the price, the waiting time or the ginger chef - whatever - you should learn to recognise quality when it passes your lips. Yes, the food isn't cheap, but it's not far off what you'd pay at Five Guys, Honest Burger etc. The difference with the Troll is that you're getting the results of passion,... More

You will be hooked after your first imperial. I've eaten a lot of what the troll has to offer and I have never walked away without being impressed at the quality and saddened that I hadn't ordered another burger. For the really indulgent pick up some stinky fries.

Having read good things about it we decided to give it a go. Ordered 2 burgers £11.95 each. I was expecting a good feast as we paid like for good dining. After exactly 50 minutes waiting time little sandwich like a burger arrived. Inside little piece of meat full of fat all over the bun for which we had to... More

Hi there, sorry to hear you were not satisfied with your visit. A 50 minute wait is quite common during busy periods and we hope that you were informed of a wait beforehand as we do try to keep the bar informed if we are busy. The Hobgoblin has a very large seating capacity so it can often appear quiet... More

I have had a lot of burgers in my time, having lived in London for 5 years, there have been some great ones I can tell you! HOWEVER, this burger is 100% the best burger going in Brighton and in my over all top three burgers of ALL TIME. Price iS relevant to the quality and I can't fault it.... More

The Troll's Pantry burgers and fries are delicious. They are expensive though, so don't expect to be eating on the cheap. We went early in the evening on a Saturday, so was expecting to wait a little while - but it took an hour for the food to come (with no indication of when it would arrive), which really was... More

The burger and fries are amazing here but hugely over-priced and we waited over an hour to receive our food. The barmaid tried to tell us that they had had a huge order but two tables that came in after us had both finished their meal by the time we got ours. I would have appreciated the truth that they...

I paid £15.45 for a single burger and chips. I've had much bigger better burgers in Brighton for half the price. I did enjoy my experience but doubt I'll go back.

Paul C, Owner at The Troll's Pantry, responded to this review

Hi, thanks for the review. I just wanted to say, just in case you missed the literature on the menu, we are expensive for a reason. No one else sources the ingredients as thoroughly as we do, from the hand cut fries cooked in single estate, specially imported extra virgin olive oil (about 20x price of regular oil) to the...

The best burger ever! No seriously these people not only care about locally sourced ingredients but know how to cook it 😄. Expensive at £8 to eat in the street but worth is as a treat.
