Okay, so it’s won battle of the burger 2015, 2016, and now 2017, so I thought I’d FINALLY give the place a go!
The staff has a trendy young feel to it, and all the servers seems to be switched-on but chilled-out at the same time, which is perfect for this environment.
We went for calamari (£7.95) and Philly cheese stead spring rolls (£6.95) to start with. All very well presented and very tasty too. Our waiter remembered who had ordered what when the food came out – a nice touch.
The first three burgers on the menu are proudly marked as winners of the 2015, 2016, and 2017 Battle of the Burger. I went for the 2016 winner – “baby got back” (£10.95), comprising bacon jam, Monterry Jack, Brown ale and maple candied bacon, pastrami and onion strings. Only one word is needed to describe how this tasted – amazing. My companion chose a vegetarian “new greenhouse” (£8.95), which if you love cheese if the right way to go – it’s made of up goats cheese, portobello mushroom, beetroot and onions.
The decor is a shabby-chique soft furnishings paradise, set against wooden floors and exposed brickwork. This makes you feel very relaxed – after you’ve eaten you just want to curl up in one of the antique easy chairs and fall asleep.
I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to get here, but it has definitively lived up to expectation! From our experience Lola Jeans has turned burger design into an art form at which it clearly excels.
