The Munchbox is a Burger Bar situated near Wickes in a corner of the car park at St Nicholas Retail Park, King’s Lynn. Now this small establishment is not particularly visible from the road and we have often been surprised of late to see how many people seem to frequent it so thought it was time to investigate.
When we arrived we were greeted with smiles and asked if we would like drinks, these were prepared as we dithered over what to order. Having settled for two cheeseburgers, one with onions and one with mushrooms we then had to make another decision of whether or not to have butter in the baps (never been asked that at a Burger Bar before).
Service was very quick, from placing our order to sitting at a nearby table with our food was only a matter of minutes. Our burgers were delicious, everything was fresh and well presented, really melt in your mouth, hot enough to be enjoyable right to the last mouthful. Coffee was served in proper mugs and not the polystyrene variety, although these were available for take away drinks.
Whilst eating we were impressed to see a variety of customers come and go, trades people, office workers, a family and a couple of obviously retired gentlemen and a smartly dressed young lady.
Having polished off every crumb like food was about to be rationed we went to have a chat with Charlotte and Jamie who took over managing The Munchbox a few months ago. They have made quite a few changes, including some interesting additions to the menu like Peri Peri Chicken. The recent rebranding makes everywhere look very smart and extremely clean, both inside and out.
Whilst chatting, Charlotte was busy cleaning the table and chairs and Jamie was cleaning the cooking surfaces ready for the next lucky customer. It was pointed out to us that they now have a delivery service and have also introduced a loyalty card (buy 10 get 1 free).
When you are next in the area of St Nicholas Retail Park, if you don’t have time to go into a cafe but want something quick and of good quality to eat or drink we would definitely say give The Munchbox a go, you won’t be disappointed.
