The best burger restaurants in the UK
We’ve teamed up with The Good Food Guide to bring you six restaurants offering some of the best burgers in Britain.
The hamburger may be just a sandwich, but it is probably the most popular food in the world. Rissoles of chopped beef have been a staple of East European cuisines for centuries, but America is said to be its true home, with the state of Wisconsin claiming its invention – in 1885 a young entrepreneur turned his homemade meatballs into sandwiches, which he then named hamburgers, and sold at county fairs. The burger has become more sophisticated since those early days and has never been more fashionable.
Hawksmoor, Various UK locations
Burgers served from the bar menu amidst the Mad Med style vibes. Try a kimchi burger and discover how good it can be combined with outstanding British beef! Squeeze in the triple-cooked chips if you can…
Blas Burgerworks, The Warren, St Ives, Cornwall TR26 2EA
This feel-good eco-friendly burger bar is a must if you’re in the area. Relax and enjoy the utilitarian design and the laid-back vibe with burgers made from local beef. Finish with the local ice cream.
Solita, Turner Street, Manchester M4 1DW
Solita stands for ‘South of Little Italy’ and this Italian-American joint serves up burgers with bone marrow in the mix for extra flavour, cooked on a charcoal grill. A must for meat-lovers.
Benson Blakes, 88-89 St John Street, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk IP33 1SQ
By day a great family-friendly burger joint with 23 types of burger and painless price tags; by night it’s rammed with hipsters enjoying the atmospheric bar and live music at the weekends.
