Will Walk for Burgers: Flipside, Broadway | Cotswolds

March 14, 2022

A couple of cloudy Sundays ago we met up with some friends in Broadway for a walk followed by lunch. We had a circular walk planned out towards Snowshill along to Broadway Tower, that would see us finish back in Broadway village for lunch.

Knowing how busy Broadway gets, we met early, parking up in the long stay car park. It’s not too expensive for parking (when the machines are working) and there are conveniently free public loos at the carpark. Once we had finished faffing with our gear (rain was forecast) we left the car park and walked to pick up the Cotswold Way to start our walk. Beware beware, it’s muddy. I’m starting with that warning now, it’s definitely a walk for walking boots.

Snowshill

After a bit of sliding about a fair bit on some of the paths through some fields, we joined the road and remained on stable ground for a couple of miles after that. Eventually we came through the lovely village of Snowshill, which is typical picturesque Cotswolds. However, it’s made even more famous thanks to Bridget Jones – do you recognise the church?

After our walk through the village we made our way uphill (it’s not too arduous) towards Snowshill Lavender. Sadly no purple fields to be seen this time of year, so we will make sure to come back in summer to see the spectacle. It was lovely to walk past though, I could just imagine the beautiful smell you’d get in the height of summer! We stayed on the road for a bit until we picked up the path at Broadway Tower.

Back to Broadway via the Tower

It’s fairly easy once you get to the tower, you follow the Cotswold Way downhill into the village. My mud warning begins again though, you’re walking through working farmland towards the bottom of the hill by the village. The cattle have done a fair bit of mud churning, which made for some quite funny moments! The path eventually meets with the village high street, which is super convenient as we finished our walk at lunch time. (Total mileage clocked in just under 7 miles).

Flipside, Broadway

When we stayed in Broadway last year we noticed Flipside Burgers, but sadly was too busy for us to get a table. Fear not though, this lunch time we managed it (after cleaning off our boots). The restaurant is quite small though, so I definitely recommend getting in early if you can. The main theme is obviously burgers, but the menu also has chicken burgers and hot dogs, as well as options for veggie and vegans.

For me though, there was no question about the burger I was going to order once I’d seen the menu. The PB+J Burger, which is a patty with streaky bacon, peanut butter and bacon jam. For my side I chose Cajun Fries to go with. I love anything that focuses on umami flavours, the mix of sweet and savoury does it for me. Be prepared to get a bit messy whilst eating, but it was such a treat. The cajun fries had a great kick too!

Dr W went with the Emperor Chicken Burger, which of course he chose to double up… Essentially a Caesar Salad chicken burger, but with fried chicken. I was lucky to get to try some of the chicken and dipped it in the delicious caesar sauce, it was banging! The batter for the chicken was well seasoned and the chicken was still moist. I was almost tempted by a chicken burger, but couldn’t pass up the PB+J offering , but I think next time I would get a chicken burger for myself.

Have you been to Broadway before? Have you checked out Flipside Burgers? If not would you? Let me know in the comments,

    Knowing there would be burgers at the end is a great way to get through the idea of a big walk. And that chicken burger sounds so good. I don’t know how I feel about a PB&J burger x

    The burger sound lovely too and Vegan/Veg options are ideal!

    Your walk sounds great and what is a walk without mud! LOL. The walk sounds like one I would love. I love the idea of the Lavender fields and the picturesque Church.
