Ive been here several times and it never fails to disappoint, often we turn and see if there is space, the staff are accomodating, food always good, service is the thing that makes the difference to me, they take time with you to get yr order correct, always happy to accomodate veggies in our party if what they fancy isnt...

Had a lovely time here with family. Only burger, don't expect anything else. The seating is rustic and the place is basic by that is part of the charm. Great food.

Three of us went for tea, burgers all round and they left us bloated, so beware of eating starters. Lovely atmosphere, superbly solid wooden tables, industrial feel to the decor. Very good value.

Great to hear you find our food value for money! A two courser can be brave, but definitely worth it! (skip breakfast!) See you again soon! More

My wife and I ate here for the first time last week. The atmosphere was very good - a real buzz without being intrusive. The staff we encounter were all attentive, knowledgable and polite. Above all - the food was excellent! We both had the burgers. The patties were beautifully cooked and the brioche buns were easily the best we... More

Great burger place, very popular and busy so booking is probably advisable although we were able to get a table within about 45 mins of popping by on the night. Stopped by this place on Friday night whilst staying in Jesmond. Decided to visit based on other reviews on Trip Advisor and glad we did. The burger was delicious and... More

Excellent burgers and nachos. I'd recommend the deep fried pickles (just let them cool for a couple of minutes or you burn your mouth). Friendly staff and efficient service. Only black mark was that the only beer was a small selection of expensive, premium bottled beers. A sensibly priced fraught beer would have got 5 stars. Highly recommended for a... More

Great to hear you enjoyed your food guys and I'll pass your kind words on to our staff. Unfortunately with our Jesmond restaurant being the smallest of the bunch, we have zero room for any draught lines. I hope you managed to find one you liked from our bottled range! More

The restaurant may look rustic with its wooden bench seats but don't let that put you off. The burgers are fabulous. I ate there several times over some weeks and enjoyed it every time. It may seem a little expensive but these are top burgers and there is enough to eat without starters or deserts. The beer is a bit... More

Friendly welcome. Trendy decor. Buzzy atmosphere. Good selection of burgers on menu. Clear explanation of items we were unsure about. Great selection of beers. Food came out quickly. Very tasty, portions just right. Our orders were slightly adjusted. Burgers without bun for example. All instructions were followed. Seat was a little to hard for one older member of our party....
