Mash Tun

With pop-up burger menu Burger Kult at the helm, Brighton's Mash Tun has been transformed from a raucous indie pub in the city, into a raucous indie pub in the city with awesome burgers to boot. Burger Kult promise everything from chopped chuck steak burgers and ground pork with maple bacon to caramelised red onion relish and pan-fried chorizo; their commitment to boisterous flavours is unparalleled. 

The Black Lion

Burgers may only be a small part of what The Black Lion are all about, but they make sure it's all about quality rather than quantity. Whack that ball right out of the stadium and go for the veggie stack burger, which comes with spiced chickpea, borlotti and black turtle bean patty, topped with goat's cheese and spicy sauce.

For beef-free but outrageously delicious, chicken specialists The Bok Shop knock up a mean burger. The Lanes pros top their birds with everything from hash browns through to crunchy satay sauce, and what's more, all their dishes can be made vegan or veggie.

Lucky Beach

Smother me senseless in pure patty joy. It may be one of Brighton's lesser known ventures for a hearty burger, but it's one of the top notch destinations. If you're not spinning in the savoury juices of meat sourced locally, you'll be dousing your chops in their selection of homemade sauces. Try their Smokey Bacon on for size; a mind melding blend of two beef patties, chipotle BBQ sauce and their own mayonnaise.

Their name is MEATliquor for baby burgers sake, do you expect anything else from your beef filled patties? Hailed for bringing American themed burgers with an English twist to the droves of hungry seaside dwellers, it's not just the interiors at MEATliquor that are mind blowing. From the sumptuous slaw mass that is a Dead Hippie burger to their shaved rump steak of a Phili Cheesesteak, MEATliquor are making burgers look easy.
