During our recent trip to Bath, there was one place where the teen was desperate to eat at…… The Handmade Burger Co. The husband and I had dined at the Grand Central restaurant in Birmingham a few months back. And when we discovered we could also devour their burgers in Bath, we couldn’t wait for our evening at The Handmade Burger Co.
Our table was booked for Valentine’s Day. For my husband and son, a succulent burger is the perfect way to celebrate the day of love. I was resigned to the fact that there would be no cosy romantic meal for 2, as we were away for the kids. But The Handmade Burger Co came a close second, and thankfully the restaurant wasn’t full of couples gazing into each others eyes.
The Bath restaurant has a different atmosphere to Grand Central. As the Grand Central restaurant is based above New Street Station, it is a much busier restaurant. Despite us visiting the Bath restaurant on Valentine’s Day, the restaurant was quiet and offered a nice chilled out atmosphere.
Even though I was familiar with the menu, it still took me ages to decide. There is SO much choice and if you are thinking of visiting, I would recommend perusing the menu online before you go. I very nearly had the peanut butter and bacon burger, but at the very last minute changed my order to a sweet chilli chicken burger.
The teen aimed high to feed his burger addiction, and went for the very impressive looking HBC double cheese and bacon burger which is a new addition to the menu. And incase you were wondering….. yes he did eat the lot (plus a side of chips).
Husband aimed lower and went for the same, but with only one burger. What a lightweight. However he did make up for it by ordering a portion of hipster chips (chips covered in jalapeño slaw, mayo and fresh spring onions) which he devoured.
Katie ordered from the kids menu, and went for a junior beef cheese classic with a side of cucumber and tomato. The portion was perfect for her, and she said the burger was the nicest she has ever tasted.
What I love about The Handmade Burger Co is that you choose your burger and side separately. Expect to pay anything from £6.95 to £12.50 for the burger, and then around £4 for a side of chips. There is also the option of adding extra onions, mushrooms, cheese etc to your burger for around £1.
We all agreed that the food was divine and the burgers were cooked to perfection. We enjoyed a few hours in the restaurant, and it was the perfect place to stop for a meal after a day of exploring Bath. It’s now the teen’s mission to eat every burger on the menu.
Thank you to Handmade Burger Co who invited us for a complimentary meal at the Bath restaurant.
