“Don't bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

Poor quality food at disproportionate prices. Staff helpful and friendly but food tasted reheated and they are seemingly smaller portions than other Burger King restaurants that I have eaten in.
The music is loud and annoying and the constant cleaning of he floors around the table I was sat eating at was irritating and unnecessary.
considering this eatery has a lot of custom from tourists it needs to get its act together and start offering value for money.

“Worst branch”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

Food was cold. Certainly not fresh.
Lack of staff. Upstairs is like a students canteen.
Toilets are filthy and the whole place needs a deep clean.
But sort your service and food out first. Terrible is an understatement

“Fast and friendly, shame about the food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

I confess I am no fast food aficionado, and prior to this visit hadn't ventured inside for over ten years.

Ten past nine on a cold November Sunday morning, summoned into work, and desperate for something hot and quick to eat on the way. There aren't many options that early on a Sunday, but Burger King was on route and open.

The place was empty apart from one staff member cleaning (and doing a thorough job) and a maintenance man fixing a door. I'd barely stepped inside before I was greeted, and I have no complaints about the service what so ever. The order was taken quickly, with just a simple query as to whether I wanted a meal or just the Beanburger. The order arrived very quickly and the 'enjoy your meal' didn't appear too forced or unnaturally rehearsed. Genuinely friendly service.

The brightly coloured interior did nothing for me, but it was clean. Being empty rather than full of screaming children was a bonus.

The beanburger was hot, well wrapped and there were adequate napkins. The roll wasn't too bad and the small amount of salad was crisp enough. The processed cheese tasted like cheap processed cheese, and the mayonnaise didn't overwhelm the burger. The burger itself was edible, but claggy textured - the crisp coating not quite crisp enough to contrast with the inner. Had the beans not been fully pureed the texture might have been better, but it was just too soft . There was some attempt at spice, but it was rather tame. Edible but forgettable. Had it been £1.99 rather than what I considered over-priced at £3.99 I might have considered it fair value.

I won't be hurrying back despite the friendliness of the staff.
