A trip to this “really cool venue” (the first in a now four-strong northern chain) is “a messy, delicious, happy affair”, which ‘dirty’ burger aficionados say is all the more enjoyable for its “rough and ready” nature.

“If you want dirty do Almost Famous, because it’ll be properly filthy”, say fans of the original branch of what is now a four-strong regional burger group. “Becoming a mini-chain may have taken the edge off the too-cool-for-school-ness, but its burgers remain a clear cut above the Byrons/GBKs of this world”.

For 31 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).
