Cooking burgers is so much more than throwing a frozen beef patty on the grill – it’s an artform. At least, at Newport’s Pretentious Burger Kitchen it is. Utilising meat from local butchers and baking their brioche buns from scratch, the chefs at this city centre burger joint are masters of their craft, elevating burgers to gourmet status and providing guests with an out-of-the-ordinary dining experience. There’s something for everyone at Pretentious Burger on the High Street, from their healthy veggie burger topped with goat’s cheese, grilled pepper and aioli to the massive Behemoth Burger and their signature Pretentious Burger, a 6oz beef patty topped with two rashers of Welsh smoked bacon, mature Welsh cheddar, mayo, red onions, tomato and gherkins. And if you’re a big-time dipper, you’ll be pleased to know that all burgers and fries come with four different homemade dipping sauces. Book ahead, stop by and try them all.
good quality food, nice staff and decent atmosphere and space. the food was as expected but maybe slightly more expensive than needed. a side as standard would be great but that being picky.
Very welcoming staff. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very friendly. The cocktails were the best I've had. I will definitely be going back.
