“Best Burger in Town”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

If your looking for a burger with a difference, rather than the mediocre uninspiring leathery cardboard served in other establishments, then look no further than GBK.
Although I'm not a great burger eater, now and again (even us chefs) all have a desire for a old fashioned comfort food. Having eaten only occasionally before at GBK, on passing we decided to treat ourselves to a burger and a beer or two! knowing I hadn't been disappointed before.
It's great to know that wherever you are in the UK that GBK, always delivers a fantastic quality burger with a twist. With a tempting array of various beef burgers including the "Don", "Smokin Joe" and the "Taxidriver" to Chicken Satay, Buffalo, Captain Cook and Persian Lamb, there's sure to be something for everyone's taste.
The only negative is that all these burgers are not cheap, and with an average price of between £8 - £10, with extras (no chips are not included), plus a few beers at nearly £4 a bottle you can soon run up a tidy little bill. However I guess if you want a quality burger and good service then paying a little extra may be worth it

“I'm Lovin' it!”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Would travel for miles to eat at a gbk again. This was the first one ive been to and everything about it was great. Excellent service, menu, atmosphere.
Ok its only burgers - but sometimes you really fancy a burger, and these are really done well!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

Like magic in your taste buds. Best burgers I have ever had (and I have had a lot of nice ones!). Also had a side of sweet potato chips which were cooked to perfection, although they had a slight spice to them which my wimpy taste buds couldn't quite handle.

“tasty”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

Have eaten here twice on the same weekend trip as we so enjoyed our first visit. The burgers, although a bit pricey are delicious and I think worth paying that little extra for. The free monkey nuts and help yourself to the jugs of water add something different to the experience. Staff always very polite and friendly.

“Gourmet?”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

Nothing gourmet about this. Colourfully descriptive menus, all sounding very fancy but it all came down to an average tasting beefburger with average tasting cheese, a piece of limp lettuce and some soggy tomato. Chips are better at McDucks..........or whatever it's called.
In fact you'd pay about a quarter of the price if you went there!
