£20 for a burger is a pretty hefty sum of money so for that you would reasonably expect something that wows – succulent, juicy beef, spot on seasoning, an artisan brioche bun perhaps, and crispy, tasty chips.
However, the reality is somewhat of a disappointment. Yes, the burger was juicy and succulent and perfectly cooked to medium rare, and yet it was all rather bland and textureless. It was almost as if it had been passed through the mincer too many times. But the real downer were the chips – they looked lovely, but forlornly were devoid of any crunch or crispiness. For a £10 burger joint this can be forgiven, but at £20 ? Not likely… The other half had a lobster roll – big on flavour she declared, but so meagre and skimpy in portion that it was almost more bread than lobster…
Service is tight, quick and efficient and I have no issues with the rest of the operation. Sadly it just didn't live up to the hype on this occasion. And the bottom line question of whether I would be back? I think I would struggle to justify a revisit…
