Award-winning burger restaurant reopens in larger premises

“Take a seat,” says Alex Hayes with a smile on Wednesday evening.

It’s the first evening service at Squeezed‘s new home, which is double the size of its original premises and now has actual seats which allows more than a dozen customers to eat in, with more tables also outside.

Squeezed can now be found within two converted shipping containers in Cargo 1 on Gaol Ferry Steps in Wapping Wharf, only a few yards away from where it opened in Cargo 2 in 2017.

Squeezed’s signature burger is the St Werburger – a double beef patty, cheese, smoked bacon, blue cheese and buttermilk ranch sauce, mushroom duxelles, cucumber and chilli pickles

More space means more burgers, including a vegan option, the legs akimbo (£6.75), with miso-roasted portobello mushroom, fermented tofu aioli, dashi shoestring fries, chipotle ketchup, cucumber and chilli pickles.

Old favourites from Alex – the winner of the best burger chef in the UK in 2019 – such as the St Werburger and a selection of ever-changing lemonades are back, and desserts including cheesecakes  and lemon meringue pie coming soon.

Squeezed has moved into the space previously occupied by Bristol Cider Shop (now an online shop and events business), with its former Cargo 2 next door neighbours The Beer Necessities also moving with them and due to open soon.
