The mini Mumblers really love a burger and they had heard rumour that there is a place in town where you can get a burger in a donut, with a side of custard (to dip your chips in of course!)
Resistance was futile, and so we made a date to try out “Burgers & More” which is an independent restaurant below the Kimberly Hotel on Kings Road. We went on a Sunday tea time, and whilst it was fairly busy, we hadn’t booked and they managed to fit us in straight away.
The interior is great, it’s below ground but it’s bright and welcoming. There is a good mix of seating and it looked like it would cope with large bookings with ease.
The menu is extensive to say the least!
The kids both ended up choosing off the kids menu (which had a great selection- Chicken Goujons, Fish & chips (from Ramus), “Monster Burger” (with unicorn bread!) Chicken Burger, Southern Fried Chicken, Pasta, Calzone & Pizza, all priced at £5.95 (Oct 2017)
They both chose the monster burgers and were absolutely thrilled with the amazing unicorn bread.
The adult menu is where the magic really happens… The donut burger is actually called the “Trump Burger” (Described in the menu as “that daft it might actually work”) There were 22 different burgers on the regular menu plus 4 specials. Not only could you order them individually, you can choose a few of your favourites and get them in a “tower” which is 2, 3, 4 or 5 burgers in a stack.
As well as the burgers, there is of course the “& More” side of the menu. To be honest I didn’t even bother looking at that. (Why would you? The Burgers are awesome!) If you do want to now about what’s on the rest of the menu, you can see them on the Burgers and More website here
Anyway, back to the Burgers, I chose a special called “Burger Wellington” which was basically beef wellington (garlic mushrooms, pastry and all) but with a burger instead of steak. It was delicious! My husband chose “Jack the Lad” which was a special impregnated with more than a dash of Jack Daniels. He assured me that it was really good although he had wolfed it down before I had the chance to try it myself!
For desert, the kids both chose the sundae which was fantastic value at £2.45 for a massive helping of Vanillis ice-cream with cream, sauce and wafers.
I was extremely impressed with Burgers & More. The staff were really friendly and the food was fantastic. It’s a real gem, an independent family friendly restaurant and I would urge you to get down there to try it for yourself.
Note- I wasn’t invited to review Burgers & More, nor did I receive any free food! I just visited with my family and was really impressed.
