This weekend saw the ‘Siblings Unite’ – it’s quite tricky getting the three of us together as my sister is in Devon, my brother is in Norwich and I’m in Wiltshire. My brother was home for the weekend (in Devon) so we took the opportunity on Sunday to all meet in Bristol for a catch up over some food. As you know, I’m a keen supporter of all things local so wanted to find somewhere that could satisfy our requirements…not too pricey, had a good menu with lots of choice, maybe something a little different and of course, an independent rather than a chain.
I’d heard lots of good things about Three Brothers Burgers in Bristol so thought this would be ideal…delicious burgers, all served aboard a boat! There are two levels on land and a level on the water. Now, unfortunately we didn’t realise there was a level actually on the water until we’d finished our meal but we did sit on the decking outside as it was such a lovely sunny day. You can’t book so we decided that we’d head straight there for an early lunch so arrived a little after 12. By 1pm the place was rammed! The staff are super friendly and it’s an incredibly relaxed atmosphere.
If you’re a beer drinker, then this is def a place to visit – there are LOADS of craft beers and ciders to try and if you’re a little perplexed on what to drink, they will happily provide you with a sample rather than order something you then have to force down. With 2 of us driving, we all decided to opt for a soft drink…behold the milkshakes of dreams!! One peanut butter for Sammy, one Oreo for Alex…
Onto the serious stuff…the burgers. As luck would have it, at lunch time there is a deal where you get a classic burger, or a portobello mushroom burger and fries for a mere fiver. Our waitress told us that our best bet was to take the deal and ‘pimp up’ our burgers with additional extra toppings. Served on simple camping tin plates, they don’t look too special when they are delivered but oh…my…word…we all agreed that they were the best burgers we’d had in a LONG time. Excellent quality meat, fresh lettuce and red onion and PLENTY of extra toppings. I think Sammy had a whole block of halloumi on her burger! The fries shouldn’t be overlooked either as these were fresh, crisp with plenty of salt.
I’d def return to Three Brothers Burgers – it would be great with a group of friends, especially if you can grab that lunchtime deal. You can view their menu here.
