Sweet mother of divine, these burgers are amazing. Slightly on the pricey side but it’s burgers the way burgers should be. Believe me, I love my meat.

What has it got?

Seating: A lot of the tables have moveable chairs so you can fit a wheelchair in nicely.
Doors: The door was open when I got there but it’s not a heavy door.
Ground: It has a painted floor and I don’t think it would become a danger zone when it’s wet.
Stairs: There’s one step into the building and my friend had to hoy me up.
Bathrooms: Ok. The bathroom  (regular, run-of-the-mill toilet) does not fit a wheelchair at all. I tried it from many angles but it’s a non goer. HOWEVER, I did mention to a member of staff that they should contact the Irish Wheelchair Association about sorting that out and they were very receptive so we shall see…
Spaciousness: Plenty of room here but if it gets busy, like at lunchtime or dinnertime, it may be a different story.
Helpfulness of Staff: Extremely helpful and they were super apologetic when they realised my chair didn’t fit in the bathroom.
Parking: There’s a wheelchair parking spot right at the front door.
Rating: 6/10
 
Why did it lose points? It lost points because you can’t get in there independently and it’s impossible to use the bathroom. But don’t let that deter you from eating their delicious burgers. Go with a mate who doesn’t mind giving you a hand in and empty your bladder before you get there. Simples.

  • I wholeheartedly agree with all of this. I also found the doorway a bit awkward with the sharp turn you have to make to get in. You definitely need some assistance. Once you’re in though, there’s enough room to roam around.
