The Burger Priest is a niche burger brand which offers grilled burgers made from 100% Aberdeen Angus beef, complemented by artisan bread, organic milkshakes and ice cream.

The new restaurant, which has created 15 jobs, will open on Thursday, July 30, offering both dine-in and takeaway meals.

The 40 cover, 1000sq.ft eaterie is located in a new unit on the first floor next to Cosy Club and opposite Creams, and is aimed at shoppers refuelling during a trip out and cinema-goers heading to a movie.

The chain has franchises in locations including Cambridge and Swindon, offering a variety of burgers, hotdogs, poutines, wings and vegan options.

The Buttermarket centre went through a major revamp after being sold for £9.2million in 2015, transforming into a new complex complete with a cinema, gym and a number of popular national food chains.

The Coast to Coast restaurant in the centre recently confirmed it would not be reopening after lockdown.
