“Does what it says on the tin” – these bustling upscale diners no longer seem quite as novel as they once did but continue to offer “a winning combination of burger and lobster served at a reasonable price point”. Under the same ownership as the Goodman steak chain – from autumn 2018, the owners plan a new, more informal spin-off brand, ‘Shack by Burger & Lobster’, to be launched in Camden.

“For a straightforward, relaxed meal with a bit of pizzazz”, these “buzzy” joints maintain their massive popularity with a “simple” formula executed “with style”: “awesome lobster rolls” are “excellent value” – the burgers “are rather expensive, albeit well-executed”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
