Chain of 14 burger restaurants in London and one additional in Brighton
Patty and Bun is a bespoke chain of burger restaurants, comprising of 13 in London at time of writing and one in Brighton. It is seemingly very popular and a contender to look at for the best burger in the UK mission. It opened in 2013 and usually has an obscene queue in the summer, so it was a blessing to go with no queue on a cold weekday late afternoon – no fuss and this is when I recommend you go. The venue also serves halal options making it more popular for those with these requirements.
My classic ‘Ari Gold’ cheeseburger came with signature Patty and Bun smokey mayonnaise, offset with its raw and pickled onions strands and included lettuce and tomato. This was a pleasant enough version of a burger but the patty was quite cold and harder in texture than expected and turned out to be not the star as its namesake suggests. You will also need to compress the burger hard just to be able to get a bite. The Thyme salted chips were actually probably the best bits and was good to see chicken skin mayonnaise option for dipping, but this was exceedingly salty with slight chicken undertones.
£15 for both with tap water was fair enough and is a notable burger option in London but at time of writing, I would sooner recommend Bleeker Burger in comparison.
