Friar Street Kitchen – Review by HungryOwlOn September 13, 2019 by HungryOwl
After a wonderful morning cheering off the cyclists taking part in Tour of Britain, we headed back to Worcester for lunch.
We decided to try somewhere new (to us) and went to Friar Street Kitchen. We had seen great reviews on Trip Adviser and were looking forward to filling lunch.
The restaurant is directly opposite the National Trust property and is in a very old building on a cobbled part of the street. Inside has been lovely restored leaving bare brick and old fashion fireplace with colourful furniture and cushions to complement the red bricks.
The friendly waitress welcome us and we asked if we could sit in the window so we could people watch and enjoy the autumn sunshine.
The menu has a large selection of burgers and not surprisingly FattyCat ordered the beef burger with bacon and cheese and I had the lamb burger with minted mayo. FattyCat was less than impressed with his burger saying it hadn’t been seasoned and didn’t taste of beef; he also moaned that the bacon wasn’t cooked enough. My lamb burger on the other hand was a delight – sweet lamb with fresh mint and crisp lettuce.
We had coffee with the meal and they were lovely.
There were three ladies on the table next to us who had a GroupOn voucher for afternoon tea – this looked absolutely amazing with mini hotdogs, mini burgers and an array of little cakes. One of the ladies was a vegetarian and this was well catered for. Their meal also included a refreshing fruit drinks. I have no idea how much they paid, but it was a massive spread for three people.
From our point of view Friary Street Kitchen was ok, but not great. It was also expensive.
We spoke later about the meal and both agree that the Burger Shop was better.
