Hangar Number 4

Address: 4 Crown Street, Warrington, WA1 2AE, UK
Visited: 14th March 2015, Lunchtime

This is a restaurant my boyfriend and I were excited to visit. From the name, you may guess the theme of Hangar Number 4, but maybe not the extent the restaurant goes to in order to achieve this theme. The restaurant is designed like an aeroplane lounge, with black seating around the edge of the cosy restaurant and cute signs up displaying how you order your food – looking like the safety sheets found on aeroplanes. 
Best of all was a real half-jet at the end of the room!
This is easily the best themed restaurant I have heard of, and walking in, the place had a great ambience, and we were taken straight away to a table.

It is a little odd that I haven't mentioned the kind of food Hangar Number 4 serves's a burger bar, with different burgers themed around the globe. When we visited, there was a good amount of variety on offer. I particularly liked the fact that they had interesting non-beef burgers. It didn't take us long to decide on our food, and once we had decided we went to the bar to order.

My boyfriend went for a New York Burger – a beef burger with chicken, bacon, cheese and bbq sauce, and I went for the Mumbai, a dish that had only been put on the menu the previous evening. This was a burger containing a tandoori chicken breast, with an onion bhaji, mango chutney and spinach, topped with a cooling raita. We also decided to try out their onion rings.

The cost of the burgers, given their size and quality seemed very reasonable, with both burgers being less than £10.

Next would be one of my few criticisms about the dining experience. We had a very long wait for our food – given that there were only 3-4 other tables with customers, we waited at least half an hour for the burgers to arrive.

However, when they did arrive, they arrived in style. The food was delivered to us in a trolley, like how food is served on an aeroplane. Better yet, the cutlery we had was actually branded by a company who make aeroplanes themselves! The burgers looked incredible, with nicely glazed brioche buns, and were so big that we had to eat them with a knife and fork.

My boyfriend loved his burger – all the meat was cooked excellently, and he particularly enjoyed the onion rings.

My mumbai experience was very interesting. The chicken was cooked perfectly, and although I would have liked it a little spicier, I enjoyed it. The onion bhaji was also cooked well, being super crisp (and not very greasy!), with a subtle hit of spicing. So although it was an odd choice for a burger, I would definitely eat it again.

One of the owners of the restaurant actually served us our food, and was very chatty and helpful. It would have been better if the rest of the serving staff could have been a bit more like him, but given the small amount of time the restaurant has been open, I am happy to forgive these small details.

Overall I would rate Hanger Number 4:

Appearance/ambience: 4.5/5 (I was cold...knocking off 0.5 marks)
Service: 4/5
Food: 4/5
Value for money: 5/5
