Found on Bristol’s ever-popular Harbourside, which is home to a raft of often packed out restaurants and bars, Three Brothers Burgers is a casual burger joint with a difference. Instead of your typical restaurant, you will find these burgers being cooked up on the covered deck of a permanently moored ship.
Three Brothers Burgers first opened in the spring of 2014 and has since become a bit of a fixture on the local dining scene. The maritime setting means that the restaurant is a great spot for an unfussy lunch or dinner when the sun is shining, while you can come here in the winter too thanks to patio heaters and soft lighting which give the whole place a cosy ambience.
The concept here is simple – expect to find a range of consistently good burgers, alongside an extensive list of craft beers and ciders, which is updated regularly. There are quite a few burgers to choose from too (17 meat options on last count, as well as a few veggie options), which are made using 28-day aged Herefordshire beef and served in a glazed brioche bun along with baby gem lettuce, red onions and the restaurant’s own house dressing.
You can keep things simple with a hamburger or cheeseburger, or you can move towards the less conventional end of the restaurant’s scale, where you will find a chicken katsu burger or a Hawaiian burger topped with caramelised pineapple, sweet cured bacon and spicy mayonnaise.
If you prefer hotdogs in-between your buns, opt for the bacon cheese dog or the chilli dog, while there are hot dogs made from seitan for any vegan diners. You can pair your meal with a whole host of local ciders and craft beers, with low ABV and alcohol-free versions available to try too for those who are looking to be sensible.
