Grubbs Burger

No fuss, no frills good old Grubbs. Famous in Brighton and Hove for being the original fast food rescue; a great spot for any one on the Brighton party scene, they are open until 3am they are also run a take away burger service too. If you’re looking for a classic fry up and burger then this is the place to be.

No32 Duke Street

Although not necessarily just a burger kitchen, former Havana restaurant of Duke street now serve their burgers with a tiny bucket of homemade chips on the side, Some of my favourite burgers on the menu include pumpkin and blue cheese plus chilli and tomato relish. All ingredients are locally sourced and burgers are served in brioche buns. Not only do they serve great food, but it’s a great place to eat with friends.

The Trolls Pantry at the Hobgoblin Pub

Locally sourced, no additives or preservatives included, their website even boats to make nearly everything they serve “from scratch”. The trolls pantry is a must on the list of Brighton burger venues. With names like “the drunken knight”, “the minotaur” and “the fireball”, what’s not to love? Made from 35 day aged beef, the burgers coming from that kitchen seem to be some sort of strange experimentations from the chef, Burger sources include chocolate and Ale ?! They must be doing something right; the restaurant has an amazing reputation for burgers. The names and themes of the premises just add to the whole experience.

Gourmet Burger kitchen

Surprisingly this was the chains first restaurant to open outside of London, and although I know it’s a chain restaurant, it really is a good one! What I loved about the restaurant was it’s location and outdoor seating. There is quite a large array of burgers on their menu plus veggie and gluten free options. Last time I went I remember thinking that the burgers I’ve had at other places were bigger, but prices start around £7 at GBK , which was another reason why I liked it so much ! On the whole, there’s nothing bad to say, the burgers are always excellent, great location and very fair price too.

The coal shed

I’ll admit, the coal shed wasn’t one I’d actually heard of until a friend mentioned it. I was really caught off guard by the unusual concoctions of food on the menu, but the actual burger it’s self was really a classic, but certainly not boring. Served with lettuce, pickles, tomatoes and dripping chips and a choice of extra’s including cheddar, bacon, mushrooms and friend egg! Although it’s wasn’t the most adventurous of burgers, it was really well cooked and well presented.
