“Hitting the spot when nothing but a burger will do”, say devotees of the original upmarket burger chain that started with a single outlet in 2001. Losses of £4.6million in 2018 led to the closure of 24 sites around the country, but the number of reporters complaining of “generally indifferent” meals was still relatively minor compared to those who still saw it as “a safe bet for the kids” or “sensibly priced and reliable, suggesting it was a franchise worth saving. That’s exactly what tycoon Ranjit Boparan did in September 2020 when a further pandemic-related restructuring saw a further 26 restaurants shuttered, leaving 35 in operation.

“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”.
