Three Brothers Burgers
Aboard Spyglass, Welsh Back, Bristol, BS1 4SB
Located on Welsh Back, overlooking the pretty cobbled street and the Floating Harbour, Three Brothers Burgers is the perfect spot in which to enjoy a quality burger in the heart of central Bristol. Sat in the outside terrace, which is adorned with colourful festoon lights, my companion and I soaked up the atmosphere of this popular and thriving restaurant. For my main course, I chose the Smokey Bro burger, a hearty beefburger topped with smoked Applewood cheese, bacon and crispy onions. The burger was loaded with toppings and oozed flavour, and the patty itself was cooked to perfection. My companion enjoyed the vegetarian version of the Le Frenchie burger, which saw a flavoursome vegetarian patty topped with wedges of Brie, sweet caramelised onions and rich garlic mayonnaise. This was a delicious meat-free alternative – just one example of the many ways in which Three Brothers accommodates dietary requirements. To accompany the delectable burgers, we opted for crisp fries doused in lashings of thick gravy and topped with cheese; we were impressed by the range of sides on offer. To accompany the food, there’s a wide range of drinks, including spirits, wine and local craft ale. However, we had heard great things about the milkshakes on offer, so I opted for a delicious strawberry milkshake presented in a tall glass and topped with whipped cream, sprinkles and a fresh strawberry. My companion opted for the thick peanut butter milkshake – an equally mouth-watering concoction that provided the perfect sweet after-dinner treat. With a sheltered outdoor seating area adjoining the main dining space, this restaurant is a great place to enjoy quality food and unwind with a drink on a summer’s evening. In winter, the spacious main seating area includes a roaring log fire to warm yourself by. My companion and I loved our visit to Three Brothers Burgers, and found the staff to be warm, welcoming and attentive throughout. No matter the occasion, this is the perfect place to enjoy a hearty burger and a refreshing drink. The chefs’ expertise is plain to see, reflected in Three Brothers’ offering of simple fare at its very best.
