Probably London's cheapest lobster in one of London's priciest areas - and no stinting on quality.
Don’t be put off by the gimmicky concept or swanky addresses of the nine branches of this chain; this sleek eatery represents remarkably good value for money… if you order the lobster. As you walk through the door in the Mayfair branch (an attractively converted pub), a blackboard tells you all you need to know about the menu: you may order a lobster (boiled, grilled or in a brioche roll with mayonnaise), or you may have a burger, all served with a substantial and tasty salad and french fries, for £16. The simplicity of the pricing – while absurd for what is a fairly average burger – cuts neatly past the usual ‘market price’ for lobster, which can easily work out to over £30 elsewhere in town. The grilled version got top marks on our visit: the lobster was a fresh, quality specimen, perfectly cooked – and tasted divine dipped in drawn butter. For dessert, there’s either an entirely average chocolate brownie or a delicious lime mousse that offers a tart finishing touch to a satisfying meal. If you’d like to make an evening of it, do: the bar has a range of fine cocktails and a decent selection of beers on tap.
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 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.
