Honey is a bar that prides itself on letting its guests really enjoy themselves. Open late everyday, Carlton Draught on tap, free Wifi, and an excellent food menu that any decent bar worth it’s salt should have. On top of all this there’s personable service, a relaxed and comfortable environment and decent tunes in the background. When all these things line up, what else would nail the occasion but their Beef burger with bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, caramelised onion and chips.

“I am always left wondering why people think it is a good idea to use Turkish bread for a bun! The burger itself made for a good lunch time meal, although I found it had a little too much lettuce and tomato for my liking. The beef pattie was well cooked, but had nowhere nearly enough seasoning. On a good note it did have a cracking mayo. I really think that any potential this burger had was lost with the use of the Turkish bread.”
“Why, why, why use Turkish bread in burgers? I’m sorry I don’t get it. Some really good burgers out there are being misused and I think its wrong. Cafe’s are the main culprit, they make an ‘Awesome’ burger, then it’s downgraded to an ‘Ok’ burger by the bun. For me the bread worked like a sponge and by the end was a soggy mess. I found the burger had too much “green stuff” in it, which took over the great tasting mayo. The pattie was ok and did the job. Bacon, cheese and onion were good, however could have used some sauce in it, luckily for us it comes as a side. Chips were good.”
