Only if you believe the burger to be a negative.

I thought this was a great offer at first glance. But it's only about £2 off normal price. GBK used to do great offers in their app but not so much any more.

I paid a fiver gor a can of beer in there. 330ml for £4.95.

Burger average. Beer average... service average. Cold

just had a look at their menu and it seems they sell 330ml beers for between 4-5pounds

you get 660ml of beer with BOGOF instead of 568ml is a standard pint.. it's only 16.2% more beer you're getting, and a standard pint might be a bit cheaper anyway depending on the pub.



i think this is tepid but not hot...

... you have to order a burger...
...it doesn't apply to the 500ml (almost a pint) beers but presumably to the Budweiser/Corona size of bottles which are 275/330ml from memory.

Yes that is exactly what it is - a cheap marketing ploy! Newsflash: There is no such thing as a free dinner.

50 people in each location get to try the product for free and, hopefully, tell all their friends how good the burger is.

It's actually pretty risky because the burger might be rubbish and they'll tell their friends never to go!

Do you have a list of restaurants that will cook this for you when you take the ingredients in? And for free?

You do know this is for, you know... people who are probably out for the day... shopping or on a date or something? It's kinda why restaurants exist.

Ate at their venue at the NEC a few weeks back - only place that was available. What a ridiculous and expensive business model! Just goes to show we are a nation of complete idiots.

Want chips with your burger - that's £3.50 - want ketchup or any other sauces? Another £1 if you don't mind. Burger and chips with sauce, works out about £15 each.

You don't even get table service for that - order at the bar - like Whetherspoons. Miserable staff who looked like they could of walked in off the street - apparently no uniform., trainers and tatts.

Once was enough!!

Was that an inspection by the EHO by any chance? Last time I had a burger at GBK it was raw in the middle. Salmonella anyone?

Not bad burgers, cheap enough at 6 quid.

Why does everyone want you to download an app to get a discount these days, though? It's obviously going straight in the bin after one use, so I don't really understand what the point is...

I used to say that these are the best burgers I have ever eaten and nothing even comes a distant second. After a three year hiatus, decided to eat there for my birthday couple of months back and was thoroughly disappointed at the quality of the burger - dry, small, tasteless. The menu/options have also been seriously cutback.I will maybe give it one more chance, maybe it was a one-off bad experience but until then I make sure I tell people how disappointing GBK is. A very big contrast to the high praises I used to sing for many years previously.

I'm a foody so seek out real burgers (e.g high quality ingredients - take a look at the price of prosciutto, pancetta, or other fillings you might find in a burger other than a leaf of lettuce). I'm always happy to pay more for a top quality burger/steak/meal in general as I enjoy it, else would buy the ingredients and do it myself at home (might get 2-3 burgers for £8 that way but impossible for 99p). Tip for you - you can buy frozen pizzas for 99p at the supermarket, that's cheaper than it costs in the most popular pizzerias in Italy. Hope you enjoy.

All this bl###y fuss about a bit of burger advertising.
Haven't we got more important things to worry about in todays world.
If you like meat good, if you don't just go and eat your vegetables quietly somewhere else.

Yeah, I found out about their offensive adverts today. They were basically inciting yet more hatred towards a group that can actually be considered as having a 'protected belief' under The Equality Act 2010.

I think they've offered 50% off veggie burgers to say sorry, but that's definitely not going far enough given that they've alienated all the vegetarians. Perhaps if they'd offered a completely free veggie meal that might have shown a real effort to apologise and use the opportunity to make them feel welcome again, but I think the value of the discount is an accurate reflection of how they really feel: on the fence about whether they want to join in mocking vegetarians with meat eaters or retain all the veggie customers they had/could have had in the future.

I might be willing to take a free meal from them in the future (although, I'd feel seriously uneasy about the possibility of them sneaking meat into my meal for the LOLs and/or their now empowered meat eating customers making the experience unpleasant), but I am not willing to give them a single penny of my money if they have that sort of disrespectful attitude towards the person holding the purse strings.

I quite like their burgers.

Thanks for this. I used the app the first time I went to GBK and then I hadn't been ever since. (Probably a few years ago to be completely honest), so heat from me. A free lunch is always appreciated!
