About Burger Theory

We believe in the perfect burger! Burger theory is a quality burger company with a passion for really good food...

Burger Theory was founded by friends Rory Perriment and Oliver Thorogood, two very creative and enthusiastic burger chefs! In 2012 we started experimenting with different recipes and discovered there are hundreds of ways you can make a burger.

We decided that we would be ‘The Creative Burger People’ with no limits to what can and cannot go in to a burger. With the menu set we started taking our delicious culinary creations to festivals and food fairs around the country. We can now be found at weddings, street food events, music festivals, running pop-up kitchens and at our Bristol Restaurant.

Amazing burgers, great tasty food! Hope you get the famous kimchi fries back on the menu soon so we can taste them:) Thought the drinks were expensive but I can imagine this is to get you through the pandemic crisis. Thanks for having us we loved it.

Service was very good. Both burgers cooked all the way through when they are meant to be pink (as stated on the menu). My husbands was crispy! Reported back to Burger Theory, nothing was really done about it. They apologised.

Usually we have fantastic food and service. Unfortunately and due to the weather we did not stay. The outside tables were not all under cover and the rain was persistent. Although another table with an umbrella was due to become available for a short time, we were already soaked through and cold. Also, when we ordered a specific red wine another was brought out to us and left with no explanation why it was different. Perhaps when the outside dining area was 're-vamped' more thought about shelter would have been nice. After all we do live in an unpredictable weather climate. Such a shame that the weather spoilt our experience. We already have a table booked for after the next UK step down and I have been assured as long as the step down occurs the seating will be inside. If not we may have to review our booking. As it is, I wouldn't recommend you to anyone but I'm sure in the right conditions you would of excelled as you always have done.

First time to BT and the food was delicious. Chicken was unavailable but the kitchen were super flexible to create something alternative to make up for it. Makes such a difference not having non stop traffic on Baldwin Street. Some outdoor (quiet) music outside wouls have been nice. Staff super helpful and friendly. Food really tasty. One of our group had the vegan burger and loved it.

Great staff, service and food. Felt safe with all the measures that were in place re cleanliness, social distance and service. Small menu but quality of food was of a really high standard. Tucked away location but will definitely come again. X

It was a really cold night and the front of the restaurant where we were sat was freezing, and unfortunately our burgers were a little cold. Flavours were great but for the price and hype it was disappointing.

Food really tasty, however portion sizes too small. More chips would solve that easily

I loved the food as always but I was disappointed to be basically asked to leave after less than an hour. The waitress practically forced me to put my pint into a takeaway cup After 45 minutes. We had initially booked for 6.15 and changed the booking time to 7. On the original email where I had booked at 6.15 it said they would need the table back by 7.40 which gave us an hour and a half - perfect. But we were given less than an hour, we spent nearly £50 and couldn’t even sit to let our food go down. Not only that but it took a long time to get our drinks as the barrel had to be changed which I have no problem with but had we been served our drinks straight away I might have been able to finish it.

Great service and mostly great food. The jalapeño cheese balls need more jalapeños and the hot sauce needs to be hotter. The slushie cocktail was overpriced. Fantastic service though. I’d definitely return.
