Sampsons in Worcester has come a long way. From selling burgers out of a food van on a lay-by close to Droitwich, Carl Sampson has found a permanent home to bring his much talked-about specialities closer to the masses – on New Street in the centre of Worcester. Having joined forces with the Conservatory Bar & Kitchen, there’s now more to Sampson’s than just its gourmet burgers. Fans can also look forward to sides like pork belly bites, as well as desserts like salted caramel milkshakes and apple & blackberry ice cream. Every visit here is a tasty experience you’ll never forget, so why not book ahead at this one to avoid disappointment?
Best burger ever!- The sides are really good too. We went on a Friday evening and eat downstairs in the pub main area but there was an upstairs to eat .You order at the bar rather than a table service restaurant but that works well in a pub environment . Would 100% recommend Sampson’s burger deserves to be busier!
As always, the best burgers around! You’re always best to spend as much time choosing your fries as your main - definitely go with the Porky Fries!
Great tasting burgers as always from Carl. Cookie Monster dessert was amazing!! Friendly staff made the experience enjoyable- good to catch up with Carl and his Mum again. Always good to support local businesses serving great food.
Very friendly staff couldn’t do enough for us. Food amazing-ribs to die for and burgers so juicy. Brownie stack was delicious. Great atmosphere will definitely be back
The food was good. I won’t go back though. I didn’t like that I had to order and pay for food at Sampson’s but order and pay for drinks at the bar. As a group of 5 we like to split the bill at the end. I think the product is great but the customer experience needs to improve and with modern technology at tills this could be done with a button for food and one for drinks at the bar. I would also prefer table service to take my order, bring my food and drinks, deliver and pay my bill. I was up forever leaving the group to order this and pay that. Like I said great product but Sampson’s and the conservatory need to work together to improve the customer experience.
Food & service excellent - takes burgers to another level. Booked table was already reserved & ready for us even though we arrived 15 mins. early. Not somewhere for a “romantic” date as found it difficult to hear ourselves over the noise of the crowded bar. However that does not in any way reflect on the fabulous food we ate. And to be honest, was more interested in eating than talking!!
Heard really great stories about Sampson’s. So I thought let’s give it a try. Walked up to the pub to be greeted by 2 bouncers on the door unfortunately it wouldn’t be a great place to take a child after half 7. Walked up the stairs to be told where we were sitting not shown Just pointed. Ordered our food and I heard one of the waitress’s saying to another table “I’m sorry about the wait the big table are being pains” to me that is no way off speaking to customers (I use to work in a restaurant) the food came out with our sides being 5mins later.. overall I didn’t enjoy it, the burger was nice but the staff put a downer on my evening! I wish the chef all the best but I won’t be visiting again.
Food was amazing! Loved it. Only suggestion would be to seperate the eating area more from the conservatory bar as lots of annoying groups of people stand over you and noise is too much. You could install or build something quite clever to break it up, still encourage people to come eat and show a distinction between the burger bar and pub.
Great food. Room that we ate in lacks a bit of atmosphere. Maybe some music, plants or lights would help. Nice touch of a free ice cream for my son who was celebrating his birthday. Will definitely return.
Visited Sampson’s about thee times in the past 2 months since we found it in Worcester, can’t get enough of it - Probably the best burger I’ve ever had!
