ALL of the Beefy Boys restaurants will be closed for two days.

The popular local burger chain will not be opening today (September 11) or tomorrow (September 12) due to staff parties at all three Beefy Boys locations and a subsequent recovery day.


This comes as a response to a particularly busy season for the team, especially as its new Cheltenham premises has had to face its very first summer.

Along with serving the crowds in their brick-and-mortar locations they have attended many local events serving food from their truck, but are in demand across the UK, recently selling out at Meatopia food festival in London. They have also made multiple television appearances in the last few months, with Anthony Murphy, one of the restaurant's founders, featuring on BBC One’s Saturday Kitchen.

A spokesperson said: “All our branches will be closed so we can throw a big thank you party for our staff after a gruelling summer and give them time to nurse their hangovers.”

The temporary closure has been well received online, with Jim Cratchley commenting: “Have a great time. No work talk, just drinks, food, laughter. Well done.”

Colin Walls added: “Great to see a business that knows what its most important asset is and is aware of the need to nurture it. Well done!”

All three restaurants will be back open on Wednesday, September 13.

Founded in Hereford in 2011, Beefy Boys have built up a reputation as creators of outstanding food in the culinary world. They are known for using 100 per cent Hereford beef in their burgers, sourced from local butchers Neil Powell and local farmer Johnny Morris.
