What score out of 10 did they get?
Stevie was recommended the Filthy Pig burger; a beef patty with American cheese, bacon, slow cooked pulled pork, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and baconnaise sauce.
His parter Rachel had the Gravy Baby burger – a southern fried chicken fillet loaded with a hash brown, cheese sauce and a pouring pot of homemade chicken gravy. They shared a portion of katsu loaded chicken fries, large chicken goujons, curry sauce, mayo and spring onions.
Stevie said the burger was “absolutely delicious, a really tender beef patty, lovely flavour coming through the pulled pork and the sauce was quite simply superb.”
He added: "The fries were a taste sensation with lovely crispy chicken and the curry sauce was a belter. The gravy was like KFC’s gravy used to be when it was thick and full of flavour.“We were kindly complimented our food but at £22.35 for a mountain of food it’s definitely value for money. Plus the lads are first class lovely people.“As for my score it’s a 9.1 out of 10.”
