Harden's survey result
Fans of London’s original upmarket burger chain still acclaim the “best patties around” but this stalwart brand is looking “a little tired and worn out” nowadays. In summer 2018, its owners Famous Brands announced they were ‘considering their strategic options’ after a £2m loss at the group, although many reporters feel “there’s nothing really wrong with the concept”.
“Hard to beat, even with all the new competition” – this “always reliable” stalwart (the first of the upmarket burger chains to hit the capital) still “does what it says on the tin”: “the burgers here are great, and as a venue for a no-fuss meal when the family are hungry and in a hurry” it’s “good value” and “very tasty”.
“Overtaken by funkier rivals”, but this burger franchise still wins solid support from most reporters for its “good value, really good selection of options, and excellent sides”.
“GBK always delivers what it says on the tin!”, say loyalists of this still-popular burger franchise; “it nowadays lags a market it once led” however, and even if it’s still “always solid and enjoyable” it’s also arguably “nothing to write home about”.
