Malmaison – The Marina

Enjoy a burger at Chez Mal Brasserie in the Malmasion Hotel. If the Mal burger with Ayrshire bacon, Gruyère cheese, burger relish & fries tempts you then you’re in for a treat! Situated on Brighton’s Marina, you can dine alfresco and smell the sea air on the ship-shaped terrace overlooking the sea. Or for the view without the sea breeze try their conservatory.

Hove Place, First Avenue

“The quality of the meat was evident from the first taste – it was simply gorgeous.  Juicy and succulent, more of a large cricket ball than a patty, it was my kind of burger with a great flavour to it and well-seasoned.”  comes served with delicious apple and raisin coleslaw. One of Hove’s favourite food pubs.

Moksha, York Place

Moksha keep it simple with four burgers to choose from, including one vegetarian option. All burgers are made with 150g of free-range 21 day matured beef, minced and made into patties just down the road at The Brighton Sausage Company. Our reviewer, Sarah had a slight eek from the lack of fries, but seeing as this is a lunchtime cafe we can understand the emphasis on the burger itself.

The Cricketers, Black Lion Street

Serving a great variety of burgers at a very good price. The Cricketers in Brighton is great old school boozer to pop into when you’re in the centre of town. We’re talking a burger with friends rather than a romantic burger for two. Great buns with THICK tasty hand cut chips. A great vibe and full of characters usually.

Earth and Stars, North Laine

The most environmentally friendly pub in Brighton. A late entry to our burger hall of fame and a venue also known for their excellent roasts. Their burgers are nice and crunchy on the outside and nice and pink in the middle. Quite a price tag but a great quality burger. Features veggie burgers too and some rather nice beer.

MEATliquor, London Road

Known for its burgers and cocktails & REAL meaty burgers with a choice of gourmet toppings. Potentially a ‘game changer’ according to a few burger bloggers out there. The Dead Hippie comes recommended. Be careful in there as you lose track of time. MEATliquor strapline – “Come Hungry. Leave Drunk.”
