“Great burger - shame about the ambience”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Was disappointed to find this was more like a Macdonald's than a 'gourmet' burger restaurant which is a shame because the burgers (meat and veggie) were excellent. The salad was lovely and fresh and the skinny chips were perfect. However, if you haven't been before the staff are unlikely to tell you how it all works - we sat at our table waiting to be served - because no one had told us you had to order at the counter. For the prices they charge, they could do with improving the service

“What a burger”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

being used to the pitiful burgers from other sources, the burgers here are excellent. The offer is varied and I had kiwi burger which was a mazing.

“Sooo Tastey!”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I have only been to GBK twice now but I have loved it both times. The food is just pure deliciousness and with tastey sides as well what more could you want. It may be a little prices but that depends on what you order but I think its good value for money. Some of the staff are pretty poor but others are lovely so they make up for it. Last time they accidentally charged me for 2 sides when i ordered 1 but they gave me the money back and still gave me both the slides!!

“Too expensive!”
Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

We went for a quick bite with the family, once you have paid for your burger, extra for fries, extra for everything!!! Is becomes a very expensive lunch and the food is fairly average. Once you compare it to being more expensive for a family of 4 to the harvester or pizza hut, it makes you realise it is ridiculous and to top it all you have to order at the counter, quite frankly you would be better off going to Burger King!

“Only go with Vouchers”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Let me start by saying that GBK is one of the best places to go and eat, the burgers are huge and they are always cooked to perfection. They have adopted the stance of many self serve diners where you pay when you order, not an issue as if the food is not to your taste or something is wrong they will sort it for you.

Sad thing is, GBK is very very expencive unless you have a voucher, for a burger and chips you are looking at £30 for 2 people before drinks. But the food is very good and could be argued it is worth the money.

Everyone should try a milkshake if they go, they are thick and creamy and served in a chilled metal cocktail flask, they are fantastic.


Overall a nice place to go, but scour the internet for vouchers before settling on GBK as your meal choice
