Popular Bristol burger joint to reopen in new premises

It was all feeling a little squeezed…

After two-and-a-half years serving up some of the best patties in Bristol, popular burger joint Squeezed will close its doors on 20 December. Fans of the St Werburger needn’t worry though, as the team are set to reopen in a larger unit just around the corner in the Cargo 1 area of Wapping Wharf in February 2020. 

Having been nominated for a Crumbs award and picking up Best Burger Chef at the #NationalBurgerAwards, strong demand regularly sees the current set-up sell out before the end of lunch service. The new venue will increase the level of stock to be kept on-site and will offer indoor seating.

In an Instagram post, owner Alex Hayes also hinted at the return of pie to the menu as well other new lines, and praised the support the business has received. 

“Building this business up from the ground has been a humbling experience and an utter privilege. It’s hard to believe how we started out and what we have achieved along the way. I’ve gotten to know so many people and the support from Bristol and beyond and all our customers has blown me away – you have made us who we are and kept us striving to keep our product the best it can be.”

GOODBYE CARGO 2 👋 . . . . After 2.5 years of trading in our small and perfectly yellow burger box, we're closing our doors 👇 . . . . Building this business up from the ground has been a humbling experience and an utter privilege. It's hard to believe how we started out and what we have achieved along the way. I've gotten to know so many people and the support from #bristol and beyond and all our customers has blown me away – you have made us who we are and kept us striving to keep our product the best it can be. . . . Squeezed as we know it will reduce its hours down to lunchtimes during December before we close on the 20th for good… . . . In February 2020 we will reopen in a bigger spot in Cargo 1! 💥🔥🍔🎉 . . . So what can you expect? Well, a bigger place means more trading hours and more days! It will also allow us to hold more stock so we won't be running out so readily 😁. You'll be able to dine inside as we increase our current seating capacity of three! They'll also be some menu additions: the return of pie & more exciting lines! . . . I want to say THANK YOU. To everyone who has eaten with us, supported us, crowdfunded us, written, snapped and blogged about us. This is all your fault 😂 and I can't wait to welcome you all to our new restaurant next year. . . . All the love & respect, Team Squeezed x #bristolsqueezed #burgerchefoftheyear #cargo2 #wappingwharf @wappingwharf @bestofbristol #burgers #burgersandfries #fries #lemonade #bristolfood #newrestaurant #foodie #bristolfoodie #bristolnews #foodstories
