Annie’s Burger Shack, Nottingham

The first time I’d heard about Annie’s was when Annie left the Navigation Inn in Nottingham to set up her own premises in the Lace Market. I heard loads about her amazing burgers when she’d been in the Navigation Inn so was quite looking forward to trying her burgers on her own premises.

In those first couple of months, their booking system was completely ruined as so many people tried to get a table. They didn’t have a phone line to actually call in and make a booking because the phone was ringing off the hook so they had to disconnect the phone line. You could only email in to book but it took up to about 2 weeks to get a reply due to the sheer amount of emails they received. It was a testament to how popular Annie was that people were trying their hardest to get a table.

My husband and I had managed to get in a few times by either booking or queueing outside the door at opening time on a Sunday afternoon. The only thing that was disappointing about each visit was the length of time taken to bring our burgers to us.

The burgers however were without fault. Annie’s has some rather interesting burger combinations that you wouldn’t think would necessarily work. However, it pleasantly surprised us each time.

Below are a few of the burgers we’ve sampled since our first visit in 2014.

annies vermonter burger
The Vermonter Burger – A burger topped with two pancakes, crispy strips of bacon and lashings of authentic American maple syrup. Amazing.

We’ve not visited for a while but I have noted that they actually have a proper booking system now. You can Request a Table Reservation on their website or ring the mobile number thats on their website.

If all you want is burgers, Annie’s is a good place to go!
