The Burrow moves into its cosy new West End digs
At the end of July, we sadly had to say goodbye to The Burrow on Mollison Street in West End. For a couple of tough months we mourned the cosy space, waiting patiently for the eatery to reopen in a new location. Well at last the time has come, dear readers. The Burrow is back and its better than ever.
There’s no denying that aesthetically The Burrow has always been unique. Regulars will be excited to know that owners Alan and Sarah Simseker and David and Noni Bajka have brought the best bits of the Mollison space along to its new digs – you’ll immediately recognise those blue stained-glass bifold doors, the random (and often hilarious) pieces of local art, and the long timber tables – but added in a bunch of quirky new, but always recycled, elements. The Burrow has settled into the Russell Street house very comfortably and beckons you to as well. You can perch with your pooch in the sun out front, look out over West End from the sunroom, take a seat in the main dining room, or head down to the burrow-like downstairs area, which boasts more seating, a second bar, and some killer works of art. An outdoor beer garden and deck will also be coming soon. Head to The Street Photographer for a closer look!
The food and drink
The location isn’t the only thing that’s changed at The Burrow – the menu has been given a shake-up too. Don’t fret guys – you can still get your beloved pizzas. But the pizza menu has been cut back to make way for a few new additions. To give you a little taste of the new menu, The Burrow is now serving up a classic beef burger, three different salads and The Screen Door – that’s double-fried chicken, farmhouse-style biscuits and double-smoked bacon oozing with American cheddar, buttermilk ranch, a fried egg and coleslaw. That beautiful concoction is available for breakfast as well, alongside the likes of The Levantine wrap filled with baba ganoush, oven-dried tomatoes, crisp haloumi and more, and Birdseeds – sourdough topped with zucchini, heirloom cherry tomatoes, dill chevre, seeds, grilled pumpkin and poached eggs. Behind the bar, craft beer is still the focus.
Despite the food and location change, you can still expect The Burrow you know and love. All of the same friendly and familiar staff members have come over from Mollison Street, so be sure to say hi. Local artist Manu, who has worked with The Burrow from day one, is still creating his incredible ever-changing chalk art for the eatery. A new piece will grace the walls every second Saturday – you can pop by this Saturday October 29 to watch him in action.
