bohns best burgers, nottingham.

Found in the heart of Hockley, Bohns Best Burgers is an independent joint serving up a rhapsody of creations between brioche buns. The clue is in the name though, could these really be the best burgers in Nottingham? It's true, I'm always on the look out for the best burgers in the East Midlands (shout out to Leicester's Crafty and Hide in Derby) but could these be the hit that Hockley needs? I think so.

With Crafty keeping the bar high for us burger snobs, we went along to Bohns (pronounced bons not bones) for a weekend lunch, trying to leave preconceptions of juicy beef patties, genius sauce combinations and ridiculously loaded fries at the door. Found a stone's throw from Broadway Cinema and underneath BrewDog, a place where vibrant street art and original-featured buildings makes for the perfect quirky surroundings. Not to mention the soundtrack: with an eclectic mix of The Cranberries, Queen, Catfish and the Bottlemen keeping us company amongst the vintage records found joining the industrial style decor.

But great surroundings aside, it's all about the burgers right? Even if Blink 182 themselves were playing at our table, we're here for the food. The menu is a good size, with plenty of vegetarian and vegan on there. We aren't talking lazy mushroom burgers either, with three plant based options and vegan brioche buns and sauces, so herbivore friends can still enjoy the works. They also use local bakers for their buns, select organic, high welfare beef and make their own seasonings and rubs. For those that love a great drink to wash it down, they have Beavertown and the usual classic beers on tap, as well as craft bottles and an extensive cocktail and mocktail menu. 

To eat, I'm one for a cheeseburger done well, and so I chose The Mac Bohns (£9.45), a Ronald inspired double smashed patty with American cheese, ketchup, American mustard and gherkins (okay, pickles). One for more interesting combinations, my other half opted for The Peanut Butter Jelly (£10.45), this time the double smashed patty sandwiched with peanut butter, chilli jam, blue cheese and American cheese.

The burgers don't come with chips or sides, and so we also got the Dirty Fries (£5.95) with sliced Spanish chorizo, layered up in-house sauces, sour cream and chives. We also went for a side of BBQ Wings (£5.10). These burgers did not disappoint, and tasted as good as they looked. They came medium, rather than pink, but held the juiciness of great quality meat cooked well. My colourful combination of bright yellow mustard, red sauce and all the pickles oozed delightfully from the slightly toasted bun. Five napkins and a lemon wipe half way through, this is not a first date restaurant. Unless you want to find out your date is in fact awesome and will travel for good, messy burgers.

The peanut butter burger wasn't style over substance either, with each flavour subtly dancing together to form a sweet, nutty and salty array of flavours around the excellent quality meat and bun. The BBQ wings, we would order again - the only criticism is there was an odd number. Whilst the dirty fries were delicious, they really were hot. I'd like to see a similar loaded fries option on the menu, without so much spice. At the moment there are house fries, rosemary or vegan dirty fries. That said, they did so many homemade sauces - including an intriguing kimchi peanut butter - that I would recommend getting classic fries and ordering a few dips in future. 

I should also say the service was great, prompt and with a smile. We booked beforehand for 1pm, though the restaurant soon filled up around us. Plenty of choice, excellent service, great flavours, a soundtrack you can't help but hum to and mouthwatering burgers. It was a real gem to have found this place and we will be back.

  1. Thumbs up with your post, but I reckon we should give a slight consideration in some areas with respect to social norms in medical world. For instance, there should be enough female doctors to proceed their careers as gynecologists and provide comfortable atmosphere, best to attend female patients in their private problems.
