Flying Cows Burgers at Square, Dunchurch

They’re back again – one of my fave burger places flipping their wares at Square in Dunchurch. I haven’t yet made it to one of Square’s weekend pop-ups so I’m 100% going to this.

In case you haven’t heard of them, Flying Cows won Britain’s Best Street Food burger in 2017 and 2019 and were an ITV food and drink winner in 2020.

They’re at Square from noon on Saturday until 9.45pm and then noon till 6pm on Sunday. You can also get drinks there, coffee, cakes and all sorts of loveliness in their covered secret garden. Find more info and book here.
