Having read a number of reviews about this place, all raving about how good it is, we decided to call in on a monday afternoon and try it for ourselves, well as I said in the title it's all true, this place is a fantastic little restaurant, food excellent and service friendly.
We had a Jerk Chicken burger with fries and a Django burger with fries, both of these were excellent, tasty and well presented, the fries were made from proper potatoes with herbs sprinkled on them, a refreshing change from some of the mass produced fries you get elsewhere. Whilst we were there the place started to fill up. Will definitely return, soon I hope.

Dropped in here for a burger before going to the cinema - having read the reviews. I have to agree with everything that has been written. It was fairly quiet when we arrived on a midweek early evening but soon it filled up. Very friendly, intimate atmosphere indeed and very welcoming. Popcorn served with the drinks was extremely welcome. Chicken burger was delicious, tasty and very tender and the chips were out of this world, not a bit greasy and flavoured with herbs. We were offered a cheesecake with a strawberry coulis, delicious also!
I would highly recommend eating at this friendly unusual little restaurant.

If you're looking for somewhere that has great (simple) food, a great selection of drinks and great service then this ins one not to miss. Its a tiny place and was completely full when we arrived - we were handed a drink given a makeshift seat and table in the doorway (out of the rain) and waited it out it was so worth the wait. 30 or so minutes later we were sat at the bar with fabulous burgers and spicy fries, a long island ice tea and a cider. Little did we know or expect that we had stumbled onto a little gem of a place and would still be there drinking with the owners and a few regular locals at one in the morning. There were some good classic tunes being played, tennis on the tv above the bar later changing to glastonbury coverage then a movie with more great tunes. The atmosphere and hospitality offered by the owners is second to none. It's a shame that this one isn't closer to home (although its probably a good thing or we'd be in there all the time)!

Burgers and barrels surpasses all expectations with it's relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and fantastic food.
By far the best part of the meal was the value there are not many places which can offer the same fresh ingredients for the price.
A must with friends especially for any sporting events during which there is a great atmosphere.
The wide variety of drinks and cocktails is an added bonus to this already superb restaurant.
All in all an absolute must visit.

Not really suitable for bigger groups of people, but the owner did his very best to accommodate our group.

The burgers here are amazing and very reasonably priced, the meat is so moist and the range of topping covers everything (all meat is halal). The fries are big enough portions to share one between two which the owner happily pointed out to the group.

Cocktail list is extensive and the cocktails are great - small buckets of popcorn given out with drinks to nibble on while you wait for food. We also got a free dessert of strawberry cheesecake for everyone at the table which was a lovely touch!

Service great, attentive without being intrusive.

Highly recommend Burgers and Barrels for a relaxed meal with friends or family.
