Best Burger in Swindon 

And we're not talking McDonalds here. Gourmet! 
 
Burger
No offence to the yellow arches but we know where you can tuck into a burger in Swindon that's a little bit.... different.
 
We're talking gourmet here - not fast food. Burgers that are literally more than 'bun' of a kind!
 
Below we list the best places where a burger can be not just beef but lamb - and those locally sourced too - served with hand-cut chips or fries and inbetween fresh bread that's better than cardboard.
 
And not forgetting the veggie burger, we know where to order one that's a genuine meat-free alternative.
 
NOTE: We cannot guarantee that all the dishes mentioned below are available. Our advice is to call the venue before arriving.
 
The Fox & Hounds
Wroughton
 
The picture below says it all, with four choices of gourmet burgers available - beef with pulled pork; beef and bacon; a grilled chicken and a minted lamb. All served with thick cut chips and coleslaw.
 
 
 
Gourmet Burger Kitchen
Regent Circus
 
The self-styled burger kings opened in Swindon last year, and just a glance at their website shows that when it comes to burgers these guys mean business!
 
 
  
Ed's Easy Diner
Swindon Designer Outlet
 
Eds Easy Diner Swindon
Trust the Americans! If Elvis were alive - and in Swindon - this is where the King would spend lunchtime with hamburger in hand.
  
The best has to be the legendary Big Bubba Burger - lettuce, tomato, onion, dill pickle, mayonnaise and mild American mustard + plus sweet-cured bacon and American cheese.
 
Open til 8pm Mon-Fri; 7pm Sat & 5pm Sunday.
 

The Harrow Inn
Wanborough
 
A choice of award-winning burgers locally-sourced from the nearby Hinton Marsh Farm - and 50% bigger.
 
Lamb or Beef (Taste Awards 2013) plus a toasted onion burger bun, 1000 island sauce, cos lettuce, gherkin and hand-cut chips for £10.95.
 
Served every lunchtime & evening.
 
 
Rudis
Swindon town centre

These people know how to cook a good burger! And what a selection. Even a skinny burger with no bun. Or a Rudi's Mexican?
 
VEGETARIAN: Rudi's Spiced Bean Burger. With deep-fried Jalapenos filled with cream cheese.
 
 
The Crown at Broad Hinton
Special Handmade Burgers
 
The pub, just 4 miles outside Swindon on the Devizes Road, is run by Anthony & Clare Edwards, who are very proud indeed of their burger specialities.  
 
Prime beef, spicy bean and BBQ pulled pork burgers are all on the menu - and all hand-made.

Full details on their website.
 
Mackenzies
Old Town

A burger main-stay since 1990. And still doing more than just flippin' em with ten amazing flavour combinations to choose from. Very moreish sides!!
 
There's also something about a summer evening burger in the garden at Mackenzies with a nice cool beer that just hits the spot (so here's waiting for warmer weather!) 
 
 
El Toro
Old Town
 
Here these well-known steak specialists serve what they call hamburguesa - a unique Mediterranean blend of ground beef and pork, onion, garlic and smokey sweet paprika; all hand-made.
 
Choose between el Torita, el Toro or Picante (with hot brava sauce) at lunchtime or evening. Or a Piri Piri Chicken Burger.
 
  
The Royal Oak
Bishopstone
 
And finally, for those who prefer the purely organic option, it does not get any better than the Michelin-rated Royal Oak at Bishopstone for burgers that are truly gourmet.
 
Made with 100% organic beef, farmed locally, the choice is the Eastbrook beef burger with chips, salad and aioli (which is a Provencal sauce!) or the mini burger with salad and chips.
 
  
On the go...
 
Andrea Matta Burger Stall Swindon
And for some that's just how a burger should be. But while most of the places we've already mentioned will do takeaway, we incredibly do find ourselves back at the Swindon Designer Outlet for where we consider to be the best gourmet burger to go - a fast-food stall called Andrea Matta.
   
Give them a try. A little bit more than your normal quarter-pounder but well worth the extra.
