London's Best Burgers

London’s best burger, as voted by you. In our 2014 Burger Poll, we nominated the top 20 best burgers in town, and following a month of serious voting, our readers have had their say. 

Here are the results from our inaugural burger poll…


Honest Burgers

Honest Burgers have gone from market marquee to a 9 restaurant empire in just four years. Their burgers are phenomenal: large locally sourced patties topped with the highest quality ingredients. Walking away with a colossal 28% of the overall vote, Honest Burgers are the worthy winners of this year's Burger Poll. All of their burgers are banging, but our favourite has to be The Honest, which comes neatly packed with red onion relish, mature cheddar, pickled cucumber and lettuce. Yum.

Starting life as a modest pop up, Patty&Bun jumped on the burger bandwagon and went permanent just two years ago. The Patty&Bun patties are a secret blend of 35-day aged, grass fed Aberdeen Angus beef, freshly ground everyday. The classic brioche bun comes stuffed with the famous beefy patty, cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickled onions, ketchup and smokey P&B mayo. As for the fries, well, they're insanely good because they're triple cooked and generously dusted with rosemary salt.

Bleecker St. Burger

Head stateside to Bleecker St. Burger, where classic New York burgers are big and juicy. The double cheeseburger is great, unpretentious and salivatingly good. Expect melt-in-the-mouth patties, which are rich, meaty and cooked medium-rare. Piled high on top is glutinous melted American cheese, onions, sweet burger sauce, all topped with a fluffy sesame-seeded bun.
