Burger & Lobster
Venue says Simply the best burger and lobster in town. See our Facebook page for the latest news and updates.

This Oxford Circus branch of Burger & Lobster has an inviting atmosphere, with warm wood panelling juxtaposed with bare brick, and the lobster tank is in plain view if you wanted to see what you'll be eating.

Born from the minds of four Russian mates on a rooftop in Moscow, this restaurant chain grew from a pop-up in a Mayfair boozer to ten branches London-wide, and more to boot around the the world.

In case the name isn't enough of a hint, these guys specialise in lobsters and burgers. It might come across gimmicky, but ignore that initial impression because if you're after good lobster, you'd be hard pressed to find it at better value for money than here. You can get a lobster (boiled, grilled or in a brioche roll with mayo) with a substantial salad and french fries for £23-£31, depending on how you have it and which branch you're in. For a smaller budget, the beef burgers will set you back £16.

Burger & Lobster says
The Burger:
To make a great burger you have to start with great beef. Our Angus beef is 'Best in Class' from Nebraska. Our beef, which is three parts of the bull blended, is full of flavour.
The next step: the grill-master. Our burgers are grilled and cooked to perfection. This is something we worked really hard to achieve and our grill-masters take very seriously. Our open flame grilling adds another layer of B&L goodness. Combined with our seasoning, specialty sauce, toppings and classic bun, this is a burger for the books! The end result is a burger that has received a tremendous amount of love made for you.

The Lobster:
The Journey of our lobsters starts in Nova Scotia, where the waters are deep and the lobsters are flavourful. Regardless of what Burger & Lobster location you are at, lobsters are flow in throughout the week to provide optimal freshness. Each B&L location hosts the lobsters in one of the most technologically advanced lobster holding systems, aka The Lobster Spa. This stress-free environment that mimics the ocean allows the lobster to maintain its flavour. Whether you are a grilled-lobster person or boiled-lobster person we do not discriminate and we do both exceptionally! You will find our fresh lobster to be one of the most juicy and flavourful you ever had.

Burger Lobster is my guilty pleasure. In some ways it's like an upmarket MacDonalds...but I like it! Oh yes I admit, the queues can be crazy, which is why I like this slightly quieter brand just a few streets behind Topshop on Oxford Street because you can often walk in and get a table. My overriding memory is the live lobsters in tanks near the entrance which kind of sets the tone for your evening. You can pick from lobster, lobster roll or a burger. All £20. The food is sublime and j always get the lobster roll now (when you love something this much you can't change for fear that what you get won't match up) and it has this amazing yummy sauce with it plus skinny fries and salad. They also serve it up with a plastic bib - yah really - just in case you get it all over you! I only ever have white wine here, by the glass and around £6. I'm reliably informed that they do good cocktails too. ENJOY!!!
