The first Honest was us cooking at a friend’s party in a tent in a field in Brighton. We weren’t trained chefs, we just loved cooking. On Brixton’s opening day, Tom flipped burgers and Phil waited tables. Six years on, we’re still here, still cooking, still learning.
At the beginning, Tom would cycle to and from the first Honest in Brixton and our butchers in Marylebone every day. A few years on, Tom’s no longer our bicycle courier, but we’re still doing things our way – even if that’s the hard way – to make a better burger.
We're a best of British kind of place. Our beef comes from the Scottish Highlands and our potatoes are from a fifth generation potato farmer in West Sussex.
We love working with small, independent producers and often create local specials that reflect our neighbourhoods. All of our restaurants serve at least one beer from a nearby brewery.
