Restaurant Owner Creates Britain’s Tallest Burger

By Nathan Lee, TLE Correspondent

A restaurant owner has created Britain’s tallest burger which towers higher than his own daughter.

The whopping two-and-a-half-foot ‘999 burger’ trumps the previous UK record by several inches and contains enough calories to feed one person everyday for two weeks.

Created by Chef Craig Harker of The George in Stockton, Teeside, the culinary masterpiece is bigger than his one-year-old daughter who stands at 2ft.

One year old Isla, who inspired Craig Harker's attempt at the UK's tallest burger looks bemused as she sits on the bar next top the 28 inch high meal.

The whopping two-and-a-half-foot '999 burger' is higher than Craig Harker's toddler and trumps the previous UK record by several inches. It gets its name from the 30,000 calorie content - enough to feed one person everyday for TWO WEEKS - which could leave any diner dialling for an ambulance. Regulars at The George in Stockton, Teeside, have been giving owner Mr Harker a big patty-on-the back for the 28 inch culinary masterpiece.

The leaning tower of meat is made of three seeded buns, ten gourmet burgers and one slice of iceberg lettuce.

It has two beef tomatoes, one red onion, 20 slices of cheese (ten mild and ten mature), one onion of onion rings, mayonnaise and BBQ sauce.

Craig, 28, who has run the George with partner Stacey Fairhurst, 26, for two years, said: “It’s got to be the most calories in any burger in Britain. I’m eyeing up my chances for the world’s biggest now.

“My daughter Isla is only two feet tall, so this one is even taller than her. She’s a bit overwhelmed by it. She’s only one so has never seen anything like it. We let her taste a bit and interestingly she seems to love it. I just want to keep smashing these records and watch our customers getting stuck into challenges.”

The burger was cooked by chef Josh Heslop, 19.

Craig added: “He was a bit nervous at first but the other chefs stuck by him and made sure he did a good job.

“He’s very proud of it, and rightly so. It’s a whopper.”
