London's Best Pulled Pork

Slow cook a shoulder of pork, delicately pull it from the bone and coat it in spices and a sweet, tangy BBQ sauce. Then cram it into a sweet, or savoury, bun and you got yourself a pulled pork bun. To do this well, is a different story. Here is our edit of the best pulled pork buns in London. 

Winner:

Pitt Cue Co.

It surely comes as no surprise that Pitt Cue Co. win our edit for the best pulled pork in London. The pork comes slathered in rich homemade BBQ sauce, which is sweetly tangy and complements tears of succulent soft pork. Served stuffed in a sweet bun and topped with their homemade pickle, slaw and specially brewed sauce, you’ll be well and truly done once you’ve washed it down with a signature pickleback cocktail.

Blue Boar

Smoked on the premises, the pulled pork at the Blue Boar is just how you’d expect it. Soft, sweet, delicate and salty. They offer three types of pulled meat, including lamb shoulder and more interestingly, Somerset kid. All the meats are rubbed with their secret blue boar rub, and served with rolls, baked beans, coleslaw and pickles.

Bukowski

Smoked out the back, the pulled pork at Bukowski’s is something of a feat. Delicate shreds of pulled pork shoulder, which are glazed with BBQ sauce and mustard mayo and served alongside smoked pickled gherkins and apple sauce, come crammed into a toasted brioche bun. This perfect combination of sweet, sticky and porky is a proud addition to our pulled pork edit.
