Busy day

Just had a look on the PAX Burger booking system, and you can only book a table for two at 4pm, 4.15pm or 4.45pm.

Early dinner anyone?

Same situation for Saturday night too - and on Friday there’s evening tables between 4pm and 5.15pm, but nothing later.

Too pricey?

Over on our Facebook page, some of our readers aren’t too keen on the cost of a burger...

“In excess of £10 a burger then £3.50 for fries, slaw at £2.50, plus a sauce at £1. So with a beer at I’m guessing £3.50..... You’re looking at over £20 for a burger meal and a beer. I’ll give it a go, but for that price I’m expecting f**king miracles in my mouth, it better live up to the ludicrous prices.” - James Sutherland

“£9 for a burger and £1 for extra sauce!!!!!” - Martin Flaherty

“These prices are ridiculous” - Rosiee May

What do you think?


These sound tempting...

Eric on PAX Burger

“PAX Burger brings something completely different to Huddersfield.

“Everyone has been working flat out to get us ready for the opening and the hard work has paid off.

“I’m a bit nervous but very excited about the opening and seeing how customers react to PAX. It’s something completely new for me and Huddersfield, but we’ve had a great reaction so far and lots of interest, so we’re confident it will be a success.” - Owner and chef Eric Paxman

Today's the day

PAX Burger opens its doors for the first time today — so we’re off to have a nosy.

The gourmet burger restaurant, run by award-winning chef Eric Paxman of Eric’s fame, is set to open this lunchtime after a six-week refurbishment of the former La Cocina restaurant in Lidget Street, Lindley.

Here’s what to expect:

  • Nine different types of burger including the signature PAX, a beef patty in a brioche bun, and a spicy version called PAX A Punch.
  • The bar will serve American-style cocktails including Rum Punch, Whiskey Mac and Strawbet Shake.
  • There’s also freshly-made boozy milkshakes including What The Fudge with a hefty measure of Appleton rum blended with fudge and a pinch of sea salt.
  • PAX also dares you to try a Scotch Bonnet Bourbon, a straight up measure of super spicy Jim Beam infused with some of the hottest chillies around.

Our reporter Robert has gone to check out PAX Burger’s grand opening - stay tuned for live updates, pictures and video.
