Honest Burgers Brighton
Honest Burgers Brighton is on Duke St, just off West St and only a few minutes walk from the beachfront, ODEON Brighton, Royal Pavilion and The Lanes and less than a 10 mins walk from Brighton Station, just down Queens Rd.
Honest Burgers started here in Brighton in 2010, owners Tom and Philip met while working at Riddle & Finns. After a few beers in the Bath Arms, the duo decided to put what money they had into buying a tent, a grill and a fryer and served their first burgers at Brighton Food Festival. Having conquered much of London, Honest Burgers has found its way back to its birth town.
Honest Burgers hand make their burgers and wherever possible use local ingredients and suppliers to do so. Knowing that life can’t get much better than burgers and beer.
The focus of the menu is firmly on classic beef burgers made with prime British beef with all the meat managed through their own Honest Butchery to ensure quality.
As well as chicken and beef burgers, Honest Burgers Brighton has a homemade vegetarian southern fried fritter and a vegan burger, The Plant, featuring the Beyond Meat (TM) patty, served with vegan ‘Gouda’ and chipotle plant-based mayo. Their rosemary salt chips come as standard – they’re an essential – not an extra. And all of the burgers can be served gluten-free.
Each Honest Burger restaurant offers something unique, in the case of Brighton, this is a burger of Cajun rubbed beef, bacon and smoked Mayfield cheese, sourced from local Barney’s Deli. And adding beats to the burger and beer combo, one of the restaurant’s funk, disco and soul playlist playlists has been created by the musos at Resident in the North Laine.
Good honest fun for all.
