Booze and Burgers in London

Burgers and booze? We're mad for 'em. And what with London toting so premium a selection of patties, it would be but criminal not to share. From doughnut faring burgers and some of the city's most infamous 'slaw, to towering stacks and uniquely sourced meat, London isn't a city, it's one giant burger babe. This guide to the best burger and beer pubs and bars in London is based on gulps upon gulps of beer & burger testing so trust us, we know our patties.

The ultimate holy matrimony is here, and done bigger and better than anything you've seen before (#sorynotsorry guys).

The Three Compasses

2 x Spritz (Aperol or Campari) only £10 4-7pm Mon - Fri and 1 other offer

Three Compasses is a charming pub in Dalston that doesn't conform to what you'd typically expect from a popular pub in zone two. It isn't a super-chic hipster parade with a microbrewery and a room for stroking cats; it takes a much more simple approach - focusing on serving up some of the best burgers in London, pouring pints of the finest ales, and ensuring that it boasts some of the friendliest bar folk around. 

With locations in Kensington, Carnaby and Shoreditch, Dirty Bones is a restaurant dedicated to New York-inspired comfort food. From their playful cocktail menu to their dinner menu bursting full of chicken & waffles, tender on-the-bone cuts and exquisite deserts, it's clear that this eatery's heart is firmly fixed Stateside. This spot is perfect for a catch up with friends or an after-work dinner.
