Sometimes fate plays into your hands. You are wondering out on Valentines, looking for something different, a bit romantic and a bit spontaneous too. When you look for all three, you invariably have to make compromises.
On this day however, we got all three in its various forms. Hatch St Albans was not where we were planning on visiting. As a happy, hungry couple we were looking for something different and a chance drive-by led us here.
AND... as fate would have it they served burgers.
The burgers were tasty and I would go back if in the area. Think home made BBQ meets pub grub on to Honest Burgers. Good size, juicy and filling. You can see all that from the picture above.
A burger is a whole package, and at Hatch rather than being a sum of all it's parts, this burger is probably more just lots of individuals hanging out together (catch my drift?).
The venue is nice and quaint, the think that intrigues me most is there evening menu. Here, they hint at buffalo chicken bites, King Prawns, 8 oz ribeye steak and Schnitzels. This plus a night drinks menu offering cocktails gives the vibe of a trendy high street bar.
So from a burger joint to now an all day joint, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, Hatch appeals to all. It may not be the go to place, but it is a decent place to visit which provides value.
