A Baker Street branch of the burger chain.

Honest Burger basically run London. There’s seemingly a branch on every street corner peddling those distinctively plump patties, and this Baker Street outpost sticks to their tried-and-tested formula – dark green exterior, neat wooden seating and a refreshingly short, flow-chart-style menu. The endless repetition might have worn a little thin, though. On my weeknight visit the place was only half full, and there was only a glimmer of the bohemian atmosphere that made the original Honest Burger in Brixton Village so special.

The food’s still very good though. My favourite was the standard cheeseburger, which dresses up a succulent beef patty with red onion, relish and a choice of mature cheddar, red leicester or stilton (go for the cheddar – it’s tangy, full-bodied perfection). The relish comes to the fore here, giving this burger a rich sweetness that hits that salt-sugar spot without ever being cloying. Honest’s burgers are always exactly the right size, too: you feel full up after, but there’s more than enough space to hoover up some of their famous rosemary salted chips. I even had room for pud – which Honest Burger don’t serve. Maybe it’s time to disrupt that formula a little?

When everywhere else around Baker Street was full and the burger cravings kept coming on strong, Honest burger was our saviour. Seating a group of 6 with a small waiting time, the friendly staff saved our evening. The food was tasty as always and service fast. The small restaurant offers a couple of different seating areas which feel intimate but roomy as the high ceilings full of art work lift the space.

I had such excellent Saturday brunch here. It hasn't been open long and they're clearly keen to impress. It's quietly tucked away behind the Everyman cinema.

From the second we walked in we felt like the only people in the restaurant. And not in a stuffy or annoying way, just because it was very attentive but relaxed and friendly at the same time.

The space is cosy so not great for bigger groups but perfect for 2.

Their bloody Mary's are delicious, made with pickled cucumber and lots of spice.

I had the pork and egg which I highly recommend. It consisted of a thick, tasty pork steak, smokey beans with lardons, bubble & squeak fritter, fried egg and breakfast gravy. Divine.

We also got the Honest brunch which was just as good and had amazing mushrooms oddly!

The burger selection is mouth-watering and inventive. They're currently doing a Sunday roast burger which is what it says on the tin, but better: beef with all the trimmings including cheesy leeks and spuds in a bun!

Every month there's a burger special. E.g. October is a Bavarian burger with sauerkraut and smoked cheddar.

Brilliant service, brilliant food and drinks, good offers. I'm definitely coming back. A lot!

Another successful & satisfying visit to Honest Burger - this time for brunch at their newest branch. 

Located just off of Baker Street, it was buzzing at 12pm on Saturday even though they do not take reservations. Saying that we were able to get a seat in the warm and friendly restaurant for 2 as soon as we walked in and were given water and menus straight away.

At 12pm on a weekend HB serves both their lunch/dinner menu and their weekend brunch menu so although they have a brunch burger you are still able to choose from their small menu of 6/7 burgers. We however opted for the brunch, starting with a juice each and a espresso which was brought quickly to our table. Their brunch menu, again, is fairly simplistic however covers all bases; bacon sandwich, granola, chorizo & avocado on toast, brunch burger and their version of a full english - the mighty Honest Brunch.

We both went for the latter and myyyy was it a feast - with 4 rashers of bacon, a lovely juicy well seasoned sausage, garlic mushrooms, fried bubble and squeak, a fried egg, delicious homemade black pudding, garlicy toast and the showstopper; their honest beans (baked beans vamped up to include bacon and smoky flavour).  It certainly is a struggle to finish it so definitely go hungry and all for £10. The juices are also freshly prepared and worthy of their £3.50 price tag. 

The brunch definitely impressed - the only let downs were the beans were cold and the service once we had our mains was a little rude and rushed (they were insanely busy!).
