The Lee Burn (East Kilbride) : Review

V: 14th August 2020


Tonight we visited the Lee Burn as my grandparents wanted to take us out for a meal.

I have been here before but it was ages ago.

The Food

As I said it was ages ago when I was last here, so I couldn’t remember what I had or how good or bad it was.

I recently lost my appetite so I wasn’t too hungry tonight, so I skipped my starter and just went for my main meal.

I didn’t know what to order, so I took a chance on a burger and just randomly selected one.

The Burger

Smothered Chicken Burger £11.99

Golden-fried breaded butter chicken topped with bacon, cheddar cheese, and Brewdog punk IPA BBQ sauce.

Presentation was nice, and I didnt expect as many chips.

The chips were very nice, as I always love skinny fries and they didnt need any salt.

The burger had a really nice flavour, but the cheese seemed to have dried up which was a-shame. It needed some cheese to take away the full crisp bite, or some sauce but overall it was very tasty and filling.

Visit Overall :

Tonight was a nice night with my parents and grandparents.

The atmosphere was good, and we all enjoyed out meals.

It was nice to try somewhere different and also just randomly pick something from the menu.

Steak and Cherry Restaurant Takeaway via FoodHub (Glasgow) : Review

Partially Gifted


Recently the guys over at FoodHub.co.uk gave me £20 to spend on their app, and to take a journey with it from downloading to ordering and see what I thought.

The reason it says Partially gifted is I spent more than £20 that night, so I paid for the difference.

The Restaurant

Steak and Cherry have been on my list to visit for a while (my list keeps growing), and when I spotted it on FoodHub I thought yeah lets order tonights takeaway from them.

The Food

Now this was the hard part as I saw so many dishes I would love to order, but I wanted to be good and just get two mains and two sides.

Next time I order or visit I will try the other dishes that jumped out at me.

Steak and cherry legendary burger

STEAK AND CHERRY LEGENDARY BURGER £12.95
This also comes with a side of home made chips

When I ordered this I didnt spot the small text that said it came with homemade chips, I guess I was too hungry and just was focusing more on what I wanted to order.

This was a big burger, and looked and smelled good….so now it was time to dig in.

This was a big bite, the flavours of the beef, bacon, cheese and onion rings was nice and worked well.

  • Flavour : 4
  • Value For Money : 4
  • Overall : 4

Side :

Sweet Potato Fries £4.75

Sweet Potato Fries are starting to become my new norm for fries when I am out, so I had to order then from here to see how they did them.

These were nice and crispy, and had a really good flavour.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Steak and Cherry Bang Bang Chicken Burger

STEAK AND CHERRY BANG BANG CHICKEN BURGER £11.95

My Fiancee ordered this but I had to have a bite or two, so I could do a little review of this to plus just in case it could be one I would order next time.

For me this had much more flavour than my burger, plus is also had a nice little kick to it…I could have had more bites but I couldn’t do that as I did order the burger for me.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

more Sides

CURLY FRIES £4.25

These were the sides for the chicken burger (again we both failed to notice they came with house fries), and had a really good taste and just the right amount of crispness to them.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Mocktail

Cherry Mocktail £3.95

I wanted to get a little extra, but I didn’t see any desserts so I opted for a sweet mocktail.

This was really nice and refreshing and the cherry flavour was spot on.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 5
  • Overall : 5

Takeaway Overall :

Note : Just because this was partially gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the food.

Tonights takeaway from placing the order on Foodhub, to it arriving and was flawless.

The food we got was very nice and mega filling, for me tonights favs were the chicken burger and both sides of fries. The burger was nice, but I think the flavour of the chicken burger hit the spot for me instead.

I grabbed myself two Itison vouchers for here, so you will see another little review after this one.

Main Course

The Jam – (Normally £9.50)
grilled chicken burger smothered in home-made chorizo jam & montery jack cheese

Since I had two vouchers I thought I would start with a chicken burger this time round, and on my next visit have a proper burger.

Starting with the fries again, and another win as these were cooked perfect!!!!

On to the chicken burger…

This was a nice chicken burger, it was cooked perfect, had a slight crisp to it and flavours all very nice…BUT!! for my personal tastes it could have done with more cheese or a mayo as it was just a tad too dry for my taste (remember this is a personal taste comment)

Would I have this again yeah, but I would add mayo or another sauce to it.

Presentation : 3.5
Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4
Value for Money : 4

Overall

Overall again another very nice visit, staff tonight were very friendly again, service was very good and I had a really nice evening.
