First visit on a Saturday night. Lots of students which meant a rowdy atmosphere. But fun! Tried the veggie hotdog. Lovely! We will be back!

We popped over to the Gordon when the burger restaurant over the road was to busy and glad we did the best burger ever !!!! Friendly staff up for a laugh - the food took a while to get there but totally worth the wait.
