The Beefy Boys

The newest burger on the block, The Beefy Boys arrived on the scene in 2021 with a bang! Born out of a shared love of good food, the friends behind the burger bar are passionate about local produce, using only 100% Hereford beef in their award-winning burgers. Whether you prefer your burger thick, smashed, Oklahoma or Animal style, their extensive menu is fully customisable. Veggies and vegans fear not - all of Beefy Boy's classic and speciality burgers are available meat-free, just ask to swap your patty for a bean burger, mac patty or truffled field mushroom.

Brooklyn Craft

Brooklyn Craft has become a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike thanks to their generous portions and secret seasoning mix. Each patty is handmade fresh every day, using traditionally reared, grass-fed prime beef. Char-grilled to perfection, each patty is then paired with fresh, premium vegetables and pickles to create their unique, American-inspired burgers. Make sure to check out their homage to Shrewsbury's favourite son, The Darwin Burger, a mouth-watering combination of chicken, beef, grilled-mushrooms, BBQ sauce and American cheese.
