Who wants to pay taxes?!

Halloumi burger at the back and Turkey burger at the front

So I’d heard about this place from a few people and see it advertised so why not take a few mates and check it out.

The Taxpayer; located on Victoria square, it’s a central meeting place for some after work dinner and drinks. With summer coming they offer outdoor seating aswell – for the warm nights I’d recommend it.

Upon first walking in the staff were busy so we sat down at the reserved table which I presumed was ours. One of the girls came over to see to us straight away with the drinks menus – quiet extensive and reasonably priced too. We order our drinks which came out soon after which was nice and then it was down to deciding what each of us were going to eat.

So first off there was starters

Steamed dumplings of the day – prawn was on the cards for today.

Deep fried Brie with chilli jam.

All the burgers are named after famous people who decided not to pay their taxes; because seriously who likes paying them.
The two boys (Matt and Richo) both ordered the Al Capone. A beef patty with smoked mozzarella, pancetta, sticky balsamic onions, semi sundries tomatoes and pickled chilli.

Erin (a vego) had the Heidi Fleiss. Grilled halloumi, sautéed mushrooms, carrot, alfalfa, greens, herb mayo with sweet onion and pineapple relish. And I decided on the Willie Nelson. Slow roasted turkey, with Brie slab, greens, cranberry sauce and herb Mayo.

Ultimately the food was good, the staff were good and apparently the chef is blind?! Can’t guarantee that one though hahahah.
If Alex is serving you; you’ll be sure to have a laugh.

So be sure to drop in for some good food, good service and make sure you’re in good company for a great bite to eat.
