3. Jolly Nice


Housed in a former petrol station between Stroud and Cirencester, Jolly Nice is known across Gloucestershire for its tasty burgers that are made from rare breed shorthorn beef reared on the family farm in Westonbirt.

Diners can expect to tuck into burgers sandwiched in a brioche bun and topped with tangy Somerset cheddar, free range applewood smoked bacon, rapeseed mayo, spiced ketchup, caramelised onions and salad. And if you have room, don’t miss sampling Harriet’s Jolly Nice ice-cream for dessert!


4. The Halfway House


Escape to the country for a tasty burger fix at The Halfway House, a laidback pub set in a secluded location in Kineton near Guiting Power, with the menu specialising in serving dishes made from local, seasonal ingredients.

With a selection of burgers to choose from there’s something for everyone, including a beef option with smoked baconnaise; a chicken fillet with battered harissa mushrooms and a halloumi burger with chilli-glazed onions.


5. The Tavern


A trendy bar and restaurant in the heart of Cheltenham, diners can expect homemade, artisan burgers at The Tavern, made from only the best-quality beef and cooked to tender perfect, with sweet potato fries the perfect accompaniment.

Purveyors of top notch steaks, The Ox Cheltenham also offers a mean take on a burger, with its focus on serving quality meat for its patties, which are made in-house from trimmings of fillet and bavette cuts of meat and seasoning.

A buzzing hub for eating, drinking and socialising, The Bottle of Sauce cooks up an enticing range of burgers, with the beef patties ground in house from dry-aged prime cuts, and served in a sesame seed bun.

While it’s famed for hosting its monthly Big Ugly Challenge, serving a gut-busting 12” prime beef burger topped with cheddar, onion relish and served with chips and onion rings, to see who can complete the man v food contest first, The Farmers Boys Inn in Longhope also offers more digestible takes on the classic.
