What a gem!!! Gluten free burger, chips and curry sauce! Staff know all about cross contamination. Was a great feeling to walk into a fast food outlet and have the staff know all about coeliac needs. Most restaurants should take note. Keep it up guys, will always visit if passing.

The four lanterns definitely do the best burgers about, yes the menu can be a bit pricey but definitely worth it. Wish there was one in Derry so we could go all the time!! Great location however.

Like chippies well this is the place feels like an eddie rockets with the cosy inlets for your own gang. Well what can I say if you like chips and burgers go here.

A burger drowned in a terrible red sauce and raw onion it had one redeeming feature in that it was so small the lack of quality was kept minimal. Chicken burger with no taste and average chips. The children enjoyed the sausage and chips though obviously low quality sausage, still better than that burger.

Feeling a bit peckish so what better thing than a burger and fries and soft drink to fill a gap, not our first visit and we were not disappointed. The food was freshly prepared and the service was warm and friendly and we were made to feel at home. It ceratainly hit the spot.

Called in on Thursday night at 22:40 26/06/14 (opened to 23:00) and was told they had no burger meat for any burgers.
