Nothing beats a good quality burger – below are some of the best we’ve found so far…
The Burger Joint
83 Whiteladies Rd
Build your own burger exactly as you like. A great spot for casual dining and a simple concept. Choose your burger, your toppings, your sauce and your side. Portions are generous and the meat is good quality, a refreshing change from the likes of GBK. Read our full review here
The Alma Tavern
18-20 Alma Vale Road, Clifton, Bristol
Burgers at the Alma are consistently amazing. Clearly homemade, meaty succulent and cooked on the rarer side – just how I like it. Served with chutney, cheese and bacon as extras these really are a flavour explosion. Perfect when washed down with a pint of ale or a good glass of wine.
The Bank Tavern
8 John Street, City Centre, Bristol
Tucked away in the centre of Bristol, The Bank is something of a hidden gem. Their chicken burgers are unquestionably the best in Bristol and the regular beef burgers are equally appetising. Best of all they are the most affordable at just £6 including chips. Generous portions, great traditional pub atmosphere. It’s pretty small though so I recommend ringing ahead for larger groups.
Racks Bar & Kitchen
St Pauls Road, Clifton, Bristol
You know the food is good when you take a bite and have to drop your knife and fork to mutter “oh my god – this is good” through a mouthful of food. Which was the reaction to my first Racks burger. 100% beef, tomato and onion relish, oak smoked applewood – big up to this burger, best served with a cold pint whilst sat in Racks beer garden
189 Gloucester Road
Definitely out of this world. Huge portions with a crazy number of burger fillings and combinations. Try the Dolly Parton on the Messy Jessie when you go. The onion rings are pretty impressive – as are the milkshakes – watch out for the popping space candy though as that stuff can really fly! Read our full review here.
The Lansdown Pub, Clifton
8 Clifton Road
Our boyfriends both rave about the Lansdown Burger. The fact that they order the burger every time we go to this pub (which is a lot!) is really saying something. Great portions, well cooked, good quality and proper pub chips.
