Finally, GOOD VEGGIE FAST FOOD. You can get ANY burger as a veggie burger with all the additional supplements. Great prices, very friendly service and just ticks all the boxes.

In the late 80's/90's, this was THE place to go for Burgers, they always seemed that little bit better than Uncle Sams who they slugged it out with for local burger supremacy. However, after a visit at the weekend, i was genuinely SHOCKED at the...More

A frequent visitor to Grubbs for a burger (and often chips too) at a reasonable price. Many choices of burger and with all of them there is the vegetarian option. I wouldn't say it is the most comfortable place to eat in, but for eating...More
