We’ve only recently started going to restaurants again. Dubz has been at that tricky stage where he just wants to walk and run and not actually sit down for more than five minutes. So eating out has been a challenge. But now that he is 2 1/2, he is getting more accustomed to sitting down and not trying to climb around on tables. So we ventured out at the weekend to take part in another challenge: the Battle of the Burgers at Thyme restaurants.
There are six special burgers to choose from. And they are not small. I chose the BBQ Smokestack (pictured above). How could I not have a beef burger that has bacon and an onion ring? I love onion rings! The burger was yummy, but the patty was too big for me. I couldn’t quite finish the burger (or my chips), so I do wish it was a bit smaller. Although I am American, I like British portions.
Husband chose the Union Jack burger. There is no photo because after I took a photo of my burger, his burger was not fit to be photographed. It’s a beef burger with bacon and an egg. He enjoyed it and managed to eat it all. This was not a surprise.
The burgers are £12.99 each, but that includes fries, coleslaw and dipping sauce. You can also order a Brewdog craft beer that has been picked to compliment the burgers. The kids’ favourite part were the ice cream sundaes for pudding. We were really impressed with the service (we dined at the Putney Premier Inn) and the prices. We were worried, that as the only family with small children in the restaurant, we would disturb the the other diners. But everyone seemed quite understanding.
Battle of the Burgers is taking place at Thyme restaurants until the 7th December 2014. Share a photo of your favourite burger, alongside its hashtag and tag @premierinn on Twitter or Instagram. There are 50 vouchers to be won (each worth £20) and winners will be chosen at random. I have voted for the #bbqsmokestack. Who will you vote for?
We were given a complimentary meal for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
