Loved for their ‘pub’ favourites with a spin, Central elevates everything they do; like their in-house-made ketchup and sauces. Their burger lineup is no exception. The Signature is a classic done right with twists like pickled onions and house-smoked tomato. Keep an eye out for their local celebrity-inspired burger features.
