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.

In the mood for a refreshing craft brew and stacked juicy burger? Brewdog are an absolute failsafe. Giving you mouthwatering burgers from noon till night, with the breakfast eggs bun-addict and selection of eight different chunky burgers later in the day, it's sure to become a favourite.

@ 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. 

The Three Compasses

4 shots for £10! (tequila, sambuca, jager) 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.

Blues Kitchen Brixton

Blues Kitchen is a dark and atmospheric Brixton haunt, serving a choice of positively mouth-watering burgers and plenty of bourbon cocktails. Scan your eyes over a menu stocked with patty options; keep it simple with a Bacon Cheeseburger or push the boat out with a spicy Buffalo Bill serving. You can customise your burger with a variety of cheese and jalapenos, with cocktails that go big on the bourbon, whiskey and dark rum front conjured up at the bar.
