Bristol burgers are some of the tastiest in the whole country – for real. This city has more amazing burger restaurants than some of the biggest food cities across Europe, so it’s pretty tough to narrow it down to just seven.
But narrow it down we must – there can only be a ‘best of’ list if some places don’t quite make it to the top, right?
From the huge and monstrous burgers packed with toppings; places cooking up simple patties right through to fine dining restaurants with their gourmet take on this American snack, we’ve come up with a list that has something for everybody…
