We knew that with great British produce, we could make the best burgers we’d tasted – anywhere. We use British cheese, British veg and British relish. We’re homegrown and homemade – we always have been and we always will be.
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.
Brixton Market shaped Honest’s early days (we bought ‘chippy’s choice’ British potatoes and veg from the market stall opposite) and it still does. We’ve always been a best-of-British place.
We're a best of British kind of place. Our beef patties are homemade by us 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.
