    Probably the best burger joint in Bristol and maybe the best chicken burger in town too.

    The bun! It’s epic!! The burger I chose was a really nice burger, well cooked and well put together. Made a change from the all too common brioche dirty burgers. Fries lovely and lots of them. Service was ok but bland. The environment was also bland and the acoustics terrible. When you’re eating out it’s about the whole experience - based on that I’d suggest use Milk Bun as a takeaway. Defo in the top dozen or so burger joints in Bristol but could be oh so much more. As I said the bun is lush and needs to be experienced but what you get in total is slightly underwhelming and a little over priced.

    We had such a lovely time at Milkbun. Me and my partner went on a Saturday afternoon with our 11 month old baby. The restaurant looks so stylish and clean, the service was fantastic and the ladies there were friendly and very sweet to our baby. The drinks were good and the burgers were drool worthy. So so SO tasty. Would definitely come back again and would absolutely recommend it to others.

    What a huge disappointment from what I was hoping would be an amazing experience! The owner is very arrogant and after making a reasonable complaint they responded with i as rude and made someone cry would is a blatant lie and that I find offensive! Better places easily in Bristol and a Clifton! Be sensible and stay away

    We were really looking forward to coming to Milk Bun and had heard great things about it. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a great experience - the waiter was very unfriendly and didn’t tell us there was another party coming for our table 1hr 30mins after we’d got there. The food took quite a while to arrive and when we’d literally just finished eating, they plonked the bill down on the table and announced they needed the table back, so we’d have to drink up and go. We got ready to leave and they came up and chased us, as the group had arrived. It was made even worse by the fact they added a service charge. The food was fairly good, but nothing majorly special. We won’t be rushing back.

    Me and my partner have ate around a few burger places in Bath & Bristol, and this was the best ones yet!!! We said when we left that we were going to struggle to find somewhere to top it after visiting here. The Loaded Fries were delicious! The Mac and Cheese was also the best that we've had. And the burgers (peanut butter one and the Chilli one) we have no words!! We will be back again!

    Amazing burgers, full of flavour and great size! Would definitely come back. The Mac and cheese was great too! Only slight flaw (very very slight and doesn’t alter my views) - the chips were a bit bland for how great everything else was!

    The food was really delicious but our burgers and chips didnt come out that hot. We'd waited a long time for food as there was a loud rowdy table of approx 12 people ahead of us for food so by the time it arrived we were too hungry to worry about it not being warm enough. One set of chips never turned up and we had to ask about 3 times before we got them and most of our food was eaten by then. They did however take these chips off the bill at the end. Overall the food was really tasty flavours and decor/music was a cool vibe, just a shame about the loud rowdy group but that's no fault of the restaurant.
