Burger At The Seven Stars

I recently went to the Seven Stars for a lunch burger on a hangover day at work. It was the worst burger experience of my life and I wasn’t going to write it up due to the hangover but I’ve been assured that it wasn’t how I felt, the food was actually terrible, so here we go. I will also preface this with the staff were amazing, I’m sure I’ve had a burger here in the past that was pretty good so maybe this was just an off day, but my friend who also ordered the same burger had the same issue.

I can’t remember how much the burger cost, it was around £10 and with a pint of coke it came to £13 so this was definitely very expensive for a pub lunch, and at those prices, you expect quality.

The bread was dry and slightly rubbery, like it had been left over night or something, really wasn’t nice to eat at all.

Amazing customer service, just terrible food. Will not eat there again.

    So does that last paragraph mean that you didn’t complain, accepted the lump of coal, didn’t ask for it to be replace but instead asked to take it home AND possibly ate it later? No wonder they think it’s okay to serve food like that fella. I feel for you -my eyes are getting dry looking at it’s asteroidal texture – but don’t be a sucker… Learn to complain (or learn to tolerate the taste of carbon)!

    In future, you should go to The Globe @globebrighton which is almost across the road from there (Middle st, anyway) – they have BBQ shack every day and trust me mate, their burgers are out of this world!

      Unfortunately I did exactly that, usually I would complain but my hangover was legendary :) The Globe is next on my list to review, I’ve eaten there before they started the BBQ Shack and it was really good so it will be exciting to see what their new menu is like!
