Meat lovers can’t get enough of a good burger. Here’s the TablePouncer guide on where to find the best burger in Bournemouth.

Table Pouncer set out to find the best burger in Bournemouth, with our picks of the bunch appearing in the list below. A great burger is hard to beat. Sure, there’s loads of restaurants that have burgers on the menu, but when executed correctly, a burger will be infinitely tastier than what you wolf down at 3AM in a drunken haze after a night out. If you’re craving a thick, juicy, meaty burger, the joints below all serve up insanely good patties. Be sure to check them out!

Buffalo Bar

This place is a carnivore’s paradise, with a menu that features a host of all the tastiest American-inspired dishes going. Pulled pork, BBQ brisket and a fiery chilli con carne all feature, along with some mammoth breakfast options. However, we always swing by for their burgers. Buffalo burgers are best experienced by doing the ‘build your own’ option. With over 20 different toppings, such as smoked brisket and creamy Brie, and 11 burger varieties (both meaty and vegetarian) to choose from, diners are definitely not short of options.

Gourmet burgers at Monty's Lounge Gourmet burgers in Southbourne

Monty’s Lounge

Monty’s Lounge is a burger joint with a twist - it’s also a vintage inspired bar. The bar and restaurant is decked out with a super cool vintage decor, which adds to the character of the place. Everything here is meant to feel humble and homely, from the furniture to the burgers that feature on the menu. Monty’s Lounge has a top location, too. It can be found right next to Pokesdown train station, so if you’re planning a trip to Boscombe, it’s definitely worth swinging by for a burger and a beer. Try the Cowboy: a beef patty topped with American cheese, bacon, homemade BBQ sauce and two types of mayo - a definite winner.

Monty’s Lounge, 926-928 Christchurch Rd, Bournemouth, BH7 6DL


Starz is another American diner inspired cafe and restaurant. Starz can be found in Charminster, so it’s a little out of the way. However, once there, diners are treated to a full American diner experience, including the classic black and white tiled floor, and the all important dining booths. Their burgers aren’t as inventive as other places on this list, but they’re still darn tasty. The good thing about Starz is that it’s open until midnight, making it the perfect place for some late night food and drink. Really hungry? Try The King: two beef patties, onion rings, bacon, cheese, tomato and onion. It's a big eat...

Starz, 110 Charminster Rd, Bournemouth, BH8 8UT

Funki Griller

Funki Griller is primarily known around the Bournemouth area for its steaks. However, their menu includes a gigantic 10oz Griller Burger that deserves a mention on this list. As with all of Funki Griller’s meat, you can rest assured that the beef is of the highest quality and is cooked to perfection. In our opinion, the burger’s best enjoyed with the addition of cheese and bacon - it may cost a bit more, but it’s definitely worth it!

Funki Griller, 20 Exeter Rd, Bournemouth, BH2 5AQ

7bone Burger Co

At 7bone Burger Co you will be truly spoilt for choice. This Bournemouth burger place offers an extensive menu and there really is something for everyone, even vegetarians. The menu includes the imaginatively named Shuffle to Straight Time beef patty with Kansas style fried onions, cheese and American mustard, The Robert Johnston (beef patty, cheese, truffled garlic shrooms and truffle mayo) and (our favourite) the Dreadlock Rasta buffalo chicken burger with hot sauce, iceberg lettuce and dirty spread. At 7bone Burger Co, burgers are truly an art form so head there for some of the best burgers in Bournemouth.

Katsu Bar burger A burger with a difference at Katsu Bar!

Katsu Bar

"Why are they including Katsu Bar?", you may ask. "Surely it's a Japanese restaurant?" You're right, it is...but we couldn't end this round-up without mentioning their amazing katsu burgers! There are three options available - one involving a breaded mushroom, the other two breaded chicken (one spicy), all served in a brioche bun with a variety of Japanese-inspired toppings. Think white truffle aioli, caramelised kimchi, shredded cabbage, sweet Japanese pickles...these are burgers with a difference, and well worth a try! 

Katsu Bar, 6 Lansdowne Road, Bournemouth, BH1 1SD

Hollywoods Diner

This place is a true ode to the US - we love its stripped back decor and the huge amount of American memorabilia you'll find inside! With its chilled vibe, it's the perfect place for a burger...and with nine different options to choose from, you're in for a treat. All of their burgers are served on a sweet toasted brioche bun and include a generous serving of fries, from their classic cheeseburger to our favourite, the blue burger, which comes smothered in melted blue cheese, buttered mushrooms, bacon and house sauce. So good.

Hollywoods Diner, 9-10 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth, BH1 3JP
