The South Bank Burger Guide

September 22nd, 2022 | by Tom Harrow-Smith

The South Bank Burger Guide

From decadent gourmet burgers to casual street food fixes, there is no shortage of great places to grab a delicious burger in South Bank. Vegetarians are well catered for too as are those in search of a late-night bite or a craft beer to wash it down with. Here's a look at where to find the best burgers.


  • Honest Burgers

    We’re starting off our round-up of the best burgers in South Bank with renowned chain Honest Burgers, because they have been kind enough to create their very own South Bank Burger! Obviously their menu is packed with mouth-watering varieties, but when in South Bank, make sure you try Honest’s own South Bank Burger, available only in their restaurant on Festival Walk. Made with Honest beef, smoked bacon, Waterloo cheese, garlic pickle, red onion and baby spinach with homemade rosemary salted chips. Plus, £1 from every sale of this burger goes to the National Theatre.

  • The Thirsty Bear

    If you're after a pint with your burger, then the best spot is The Thirsty Bear pub, located off the riverfront, behind Bernie Spain Gardens on Stamford Street. Known for its showcasing of live sport, a great selection of beers on tap (including from their self serve beer wall!) and a seven item burger menu for which their kitchen is known for. All burgers are a whopping 6oz of prime rib-eye, fillet and sirloin patty but also offer two plant based options too.
