HEREFORD is already home to two incredibly successful independent burger restaurants – and now it seems another name wants to offer its sustenance to the county's meat eaters.

Burger King this week took out advertising for restaurant staff with the location for the jobs given as Hereford.

The national US chain does not currently have any outlets in Herefordshire – and the vacancies led many on social media to think that the Whopper would be coming to the city.

Burger King has not responded to questions from the Hereford Times and no planning application has been made by the company.

But with the online adverts seeking both a restaurant manager and an assistant manager for a "new opening", many believe Burger King will soon be lining up against the Beefy Boys and the Burger Shop to create heated debates between hamburger fans in Hereford.
