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.

Monday Madness! Up to 50% off main courses and 6 other offers

A sought after location for burgers in London, Maxwell's may be known for their freakshakes and macaroni cheese, but its in the patties that they shine. From quirky doughtnut burgers down to meaty classics and hunking bites, they're classic, they're American orientated and they're delicious. 

@ Draft House The Queen Charlotte on Every Saturday

Brunch just got a whole lot hoppier. Forget bottomless prosecco with your breakfast, this is a boozy brunch that doesn't mess about and isn't for amateurs. The Draft House on Charlotte Street invite you to enjoy their Beer Brunch special which kicks off your day with a hearty 28-day dry-aged Scottish Aberdeen Angus burger (with fries, duh) and finishes you off with six different craft beers to chug. Oh. My.

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.
