If you are wondering where to go for lunch or dinner, check out our team’s favourite burger restaurants in Bellingham that they recommend you go to when you are craving a tasty juicy burger.


We have been informed by our esteemed team that there exist four exceptional establishments in Bellingham, known for their culinary excellence in the preparation of burgers.

The Beresford Arms

One excellent place to visit and eat delicious burgers is The Beresford Arms and their restaurant. This is a beautiful 3-star hotel with a stylish restaurant but the interior is not the star of the show – their menu is!

When it comes to their burgers, we recommend the Beresford Beef Burger or the Chicken Breast Burger depending on which protein you prefer. They come with Onion Rings, Coleslaw, Chips, and Burger Relish. We recommend you also add bacon, Stilton, and Cajun Spice.

If you are wondering what other things you can find on their menu – seafood, fish, Chicken Liver Pâté, Brie with Cranberry, Halloumi, Roasted Ham, Steak & Ale Pie, etc.

Address: Charlton, Hexham NE48 1PE


Heart of Northumberland

Next on our list is a favourite pub of ours with a rustic interior, impressive drinks menu, and excellent food you are going to love. And if you happen to visit Heart of Northumberland on a sunny warm day – you have to sit outside in their garden.

We highly recommend trying out the Chargrilled Cheeseburger (with Red Onion Relish, special Bloody Mary Ketchup), the Lebanese Pulled Chicken Shawarma Burger (with Garlic Aioli), as well as the Spiced Falafel Burger (with Avocado Hummus, Garlic Aioli). We also really like their Goats Cheese Burger (with Red Onion Marmalade).

For dessert, try out their Sticky Toffee Pudding or the Dark Chocolate Brownie.

Address: 5 Market St, Hexham NE46 3NS


The Forest Bar and Kitchen

The Forest Bar and Kitchen combines a stunning interior, excellent food, lovely staff, and beautiful views – a perfect way to forget about the stressful week and enjoy a lovely lunch or dinner on a Saturday or Sunday.

Our favourite burger is the Bacon Double Cheeseburger (with cheddar cheese, gherkin, lettuce, tomato, American mustard, ketchup, fries, and purple slaw).

If you don’t eat meat, we recommend their Moving Mountains Burger (mushroom and beetroot patty, vegan cheese, gherkin, American mustard, ketchup, and fries).

For dessert, they offer these incredible homemade ice creams that you should try.

Address: Kielder Forest Park, Hexham NE48 1BT



Another place that we love visiting is Vercelli – an Italian restaurant with an impressive menu, delicious traditional Italian food, and… burgers. And these burgers are influenced by Italian cuisine and have unique ingredients so you must try them out.

For example, we love the Crispy Cajun Chicken Burger (with fried chicken, lemon and black pepper mayo, cajun slaw, chips, and a special pretzel bun) as well as their Vercelli Beef Burger (with beef patty, smoked bacon, relish, smoked cheese, cajun slaw, chips).

And even though we do eat meat, we also really enjoy their vegetarian burger which has halloumi, sweet chilli mayo, cajun slaw, and chips.
