General Manager of Maggie’s, Helen Payne said: “Last year’s free burger day was brilliant so we’re really excited to be bringing it  back again this year.

“It’s a great way to check out our awesome Maggie’s Buns menu – we’ll have the music cranked up from midday and free burgers on the go – make sure you get here early!”

Last year Maggie May’s underwent a £400k refurb, to reveal an amped up new look with loads of comfy booths and long tables, new décor and lighting – all tying in the bar’s rock ‘n’ roll history.

The restaurant was also launched at this time, with a menu specialising in burgers, buns and pub favourites. 

Maggie’s is open till 3am every night with live bands seven nights a week and all major sports shown across the big screens.
