Burger restaurant almost ready for opening

Fresh burgers: A new Brayford restaurant will be opening up tomorrow after three weeks of work.

The handmade burger Co., located on Brayford Wharf, is almost ready to open its doors on Thursday, July 7.

The restaurant stands where Tootsies used to be and it will create 30 jobs. Staff have been training together for the last six weeks.

The new restaurant is the chains first to open in Lincolnshire, and offers diners more than 40 different burgers, made from scratch and hand pressed in the restaurant every single day.

The menu features 100% prime Scotch beef handmade patties, an exclusive Jimmy’s Farm rare-breed beef range, a wide vegetarian variety and a childrens menu.
