Burger Theory Review | Bristol, UK

Hello friends,

Todays post is going to be a food review from my time spent in the United Kingdom! I have only done a few of these on my blog, but I should really start doing more because I love trying out new restaurants. People just give me weird looks when I take pictures!

Anyways, todays food review is of a little burger joint called Burger Theory. We went there on our first night in Bristol with my sister and her boyfriend. Obviously they are the ones who suggested it because they live there!

First impressions of this place – it looks pretty cool and like there might be good burgers inside. Now I will just tell you all, growing up in Alberta, Canada I have had many amazing burgers – to this day I don’t think I have had any burgers better then the ones I have had in Alberta.

But back to Burger Theory. I absolutely loved the vibe of this place. The inside was so cute and cozy however all the rustic wood made it feel like you were about to get a good/hardy meal in you.

I absolutely loved the wooden roof and the light fixtures that they chose. I feel as if it complimented the layout of the restaurant and the vibe they were trying to achieve. The atmosphere was incredibly warm and welcoming too.

They had a cool saying written above the arches – in summary, they make most of the food they serve from scratch including their sauces and pickled vegetables – and let me tell you, their homemade ketchup was bomb.

So of course, the first thing you order at a restaurant is a drink. Since I was somewhere new in the world, I wanted to try a local favourite (or at least a restaurant favourite). My sister and the waiter said this rhubarb cider was the drink to get, so I did. I had no clue what to expect since I have never had rhubarb and cider combined before, but it was very refreshing and delicious! Definitely no potent alcohol taste at all – I would recommend trying one if you ever visit the UK and just want a light drink!

By this time, we have ordered and are ravenous. I have drank most of my drink and since I have the smallest bladder in the world I ventured out to find the washroom. Every washroom I encountered on this trip was incredibly tiny, so I kept my eyes peeled for the little door.

Oh also, instead of saying washroom most say toilets, which I actually enjoyed quite a bit haha I felt so British saying toilets instead of washroom.

Anyways! Do you see how tiny this sink is – its one of the largest sinks I saw on this trip. I could almost wash my hands without hitting the sides of it. Most of the sinks I used, you had to wash one hand at a time or you’d make a mess!

Their taps are also different then I am used to. One is hot and the other is cold … so if you want warm water I believe maybe you plug the sink and then wash your hands in there? If anyone knows the reasoning behind the completely separate temperature taps please let me know!

Since everything is so tiny in the UK, they have signs everywhere saying “mind your head” and you really have to pay attention to it because you will hit your head if you don’t duck!

Once I arrived back from my toilet adventure the food was there. All nice and warm ready to be devoured!

The Burger Theory has so many options to choose from, you can basically get whatever kind of burger your little heart desires. I believe I got a bacon cheese burger, which is usually my go to, and it was the best burger I had on my whole trip. I had about three burgers while I was in the UK and its not their strong suit. However, this burger was pretty darn good. My sister, and mom I believe, got the vegan burgers and they also enjoyed them. So this restaurant is great for a range of burger eaters. All are welcome!

We were so stuffed from the meals that we didn’t get desert, which is rare for me, but I think my sister probably told me we could get ice cream or something to get me to leave!

This was in total a great first UK burger experience and I would recommend trying it out if you happen to be strolling past one craving a burger!

  1. I live in Bristol!

    Regarding the hot and cold taps i believe this is a leftover from Victorian plumbing where hot and cold was kept separate. And as we know, changing existing plumbing ia sooooo hard. If you want warm water, turn them both on and dash your hands between the two taps haha.

    To be fair, it takes most hot water taps a little while to become scolding hot, so you can always just wash until it becomes too hot and then dash your hands between hot and cold taps.

  2. How’s it going, phoenixrayphotography?

    OK, I‘ve always wanted to be Instagram-”big”, too.

    Well, today I’m going to teach you the best way to amazingly change forever the way you Instagram.

    Imagine: it is the wee hours of the morning and you’ve promised yourself you’d hit the gym today.

    Roll over, check the phone.

    Open the Instragram App.

    Whoaaa, you think, Over 800 likes on one picture.

    You hop out of your bed, stalk to the kitchen. You want a drink, so you place the kettle on for some tea, and check Instagram again.

    Bam! Another 87 likes.

    Here comes another one. This time it is not a like but a message from one of your followers. They commend you on your success and let you know they adore waking up to your content.

    A smirk grows on your face as you read another message. This person emailed you to let you know she loves your posts.

    As you begin to respond, your cell buzzes again.

    It is another message coming in. You glance up at the clock–almost time for the gym. You’ll have to hit them up later.
    Let’s stop the simulation there. People have a hard time achieving what they want in life. People can hardly force themselves to eat a good breakfast.

    My job is to take people from Instagram anonymous to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds ridiculous, but results do not lie.)

    Now, what if you raised your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    Truth is, it’s not the most difficult thing in the world to get more. As an example, all the old pros use our website.

    In just minutes after posting, we get your images piled with likes.

    With this you have a big chance to be featured in the “Top Post” section.

    Sound too good for reality? Here’s what you’ve got to do to get a taste:
    1. Check out https://plantspace.casa
    2. Plug in your Instagram username.
    3. 10 – 15 likes will be sent to your three most recent uploads. Just like that.

    Being a regular staple on that page will increase your growth 10x, easy. You know where the answer to fame is. Now reach for it. Are you ready?

    Chow for now.
