A HEREFORD restaurant is in the running for a prestigious burger award.

The Burger Shop, based in the Yard in Aubrey Street, is among the finalists of the National Burger Awards for its double bacon cheese burger.

This isn’t the restaurant’s first brush with the award. It was listed as a finalist in 2022, and this year the well-known eatery will have another chance at winning the accolade by taking on 15 other shortlisted finalists in a three-round cook-off at the Big Penny Social in London next month.


To win the award, the Burger Shop's chefs will first have to cook their signature burger in front of the judges, before creating a technical burger made up from a specific selection of ingredients that will be supplied on the day. This year, the finalists will also take part in a new plant-based round in association with Redefine Meat.

Genna Ash-Brown, editor of Dine Out Magazine, which organises and runs the awards, said: “A decade into this respected event and we are beyond proud to reveal our most exciting line-up yet.

“What better way to mark 10 years in the game than with our biggest competition to date? Expect top-notch banter from our host DJ BBQ, cheerful camaraderie from champion chefs and, of course, a bounty of burgers so good you’ll be salivating more than Pavlov’s dogs!

“It’s always a joy to offer such a platform to some of the UK’s finest culinary talent – all that’s left now is to find out who comes out on top. See you there!”
