Touting glamour on a budget, this barnstorming mini chain from the brains behind the Goodman steakhouse group has become a ‘must-try’ for London’s ever-curious foodies. Each venue delivers exactly
what it promises, with a chalkboard menu advertising just three items: meaty burgers served with extra cheese and bacon, juicy steamed or char-grilled lobster, and buttery lobster rolls in toasted
brioche with a lick of wasabi mayo – each costing £20 (‘a bargain’, with chips and salad thrown in). The best advice: go with a couple of friends, order the whole lot and share the spoils –
although the burgers in particular can be underwhelming, given the price tag. Service is quick and polished, while the setting is a cool mix of wood panelling, bare brickwork and close-packed
tables, with some desirable red leather banquettes thrown in. You can book, but there are always queues anyway.
I walk past the Farringdon branch every day on my way home from work, so it was nice to finally eat there. The interior is high-ceilinged with the same stripped back style as the other restaurants. We had a good spot right by the open kitchen and got to see some cooking in action...Three of my party opted for the standard B&L order of grilled lobster with garlic-lemon butter. Unfortunately I had a pretty bad cold and my meal didn't taste of anything at all (at first I thought there had been a serious slip in standards, but my friends seemed to be enjoying theirs, and really, I don't think it would be possible...

Much has been written about this novel concept already. Burger & Lobster only serve 3 dishes, Lobster, Burger and a Lobster roll all at the same price of £20. Each main dish comes with complimentary fries and salad. The lobsters at Burger & Lobster are flown in from Nova Scotia every couple of days. As a result really fresh tasting lobsters are available at very decent cost (by London standards)...

Burger. And. Lobster. Those three small words have developed something of a reputation since giving their name to a limited menu concept restaurant in Mayfair a couple of years ago. My dining partner and I had tried no fewer than four times to visit the two West End branches, but were thwarted each time by the “no reservations” policy, the large queue of waiting diners, and our growling stomachs. This time, stepping out of the theatre after a matinee, we decided we would not be defeated.It was time. Time to finally sample the burgers and lobsters we had heard so much about. There couldn’t possibly be a long...

If you live in London, I'm sure you would have heard of Burger and Lobster.Since it first opened last December in Mayfair, B&L has been creating heatwaves in the atmosphere.So hot that it was necessary to open branches in Soho, and most recently in Farringdon both in the same year. The concept is simple...

I love small menus, as it makes it so much easier to choose what you want. Burger & Lobster go one step further, as they don’t even bother giving you a menu. There are only 3 choices: burger, lobster and lobster roll. We found out at the end of our meal that they recently introduced a 4th (!) option, the California burger (which substitutes the bread for lettuce as a healthy option). No matter what you choose, it comes with salad and fries and costs 20£.I’ve been hearing about this place from many different people for a while now, and then I finally planned an evening with my (newly named) restaurant...

Burger and Lobster generated a storm when it first opened in London with its simple menu, steal of a lobster and no booking policy. A few years down the line and over half a dozen branches later Burger and Lobster is still going strong and has become the go to place for a cut price lobster, this being my second visit.You know you’ve made it when impostors start popping up and many have tried to either hitch on the “(insert gourmet food) and (insert common food)” train or the lobster train, none have been as successful as Burger and Lobster.
