I’ve always been a bit of a burger fiend, give me one filled with anything and i’ll munch my way through it in seconds, obviously my palette has come a long was since spending my teens slumped over a Mcdonalds counter, extremely drunk begging for double cheeseburgers at 3am (even though they were goddam tasty after spending a night in a painfully shit club, and hey, you need something to wash all that sambuca down don’t you?) So fast forward a fair few years and I’m an actual adult enjoying really tasty, proper burgers, with that being said, let me introduce you to Burger Shop.
Now it’s been open a fair while and we have only just visited, we haven’t even visited the Hereford branch which has been open a damn sight longer and for a so called “food blogger” I’m quite disappointed in myself and take full responsibility for lack of laziness. Anyway that aside I had heard great things so we had a night free and decided to pop along.
Now I think you’ll agree the interior is just bloody perfect, right up my street, extremely minimal, exposed brickwork, foliage, wood, it just ticks all the boxes for me visually and also boasts a very relaxed vibe, a kind of… drop in, have your burger, a couple of drinks and head off vibe which I love! As much as I like making a night out of eating, I also love the quickness that Burger Shop seems to have nailed while still keeping the best quality.
So obviously, I don’t have to tell you, it’s Burgers galore! One thing I did notice is that the menu is very refined, there is nothing I hate more than going out to eat and being hit with pages and pages of choices, one it’s not necessary, two it boggles my tiny little mind and makes it impossible to choose and three the quality gets lost when the poor chef is trying to cook millions of different things! So I was over the moon to see a minimal menu with a few specials. I went for The Worcester Blue Burger and Paul opted for Farmer Tom’s Beef Burger, both of which I can say were bloody incredible and packed full of flavour. We had Rosemary Salted Chips and a House Slaw to share, which too, were divine, the portion sizes were perfect and we left feeling satisfied and by no means bloated. The ingredients used and the tastes than ran throughout didn’t make it feel like a completely unhealthy meal either which makes a nice change to the usual feeling of guilt and sluggishness after a big burger.
If you are yet to try Burger Shop and are looking for the best burger in the midlands, then you need to get down there asap, I wish I hadn’t of left it so long and will be heading back in the next couple of weeks. We were extremely happy with the price and the staff were so lovely which always makes it a perfect night out.
