Have your say

When is a burger not a burger - when it is a self made creation in a setting reflecting the golden age of the silver screen.

Dining at No 4 Hatter Street in Bury St Edmunds is an experience in itself. The decor is a feast of cinemabilia and you share that buzz of cinema going even if you don’t venture into the adjoining Picturehouse.

If you eat at No 4 go for the burgers, although the menu offers a small selection of other dishes.

Before you get to the taste test you will be challenged to make your choice and create your dish.

Each burger comes at a flat price of £8.80 and for that you will be offered a four step schedule to create your own mouthwatering dish.

You have a choice of meat/poultry or veggie filling, with the meat and poultry locally sourced, a choice of base - for example a bun, muffin or salad among others and two sides. You can allso chose two accompaniments for an extra £1.20

And if you really have room for more after that there is a selection of interesting tasty cakes and giant meringues.

No 4 also provides a vintage tea, classic afternoon tea, scones and jam and a Sunday brunch as well as light snacks.

Downstairs you can sit at the pretty little tables and decorative chairs with brightly floral painted light shades or in the diner style booths. Go upstairs and enjoy the grey panelled top floor lit by pretty cocktail glass style fluted lights. Your table numbers are natuarlly themed on film titles.

This is a great place for a coffee and catch up during the day or a pre-viewing meal and staff are friendly and helpful.
