Honest Burger Ealing is slightly different to other burger restaurants, founders Phil Eeles and Tom Barton started Honest Burger back in 2010. They wanted to offer burgers made from high quality ingredients. “British beef patties are made in our own butchery and homemade rosemary chips cut and cooked daily. Every restaurant serves local beers from neighbouring breweries, and many restaurants serve local burgers using ingredients from nearby food heroes.” I was really pleased to see that this restaurant uses cheese from local Cheddar Deli in Northfields Avenue and serves beers from Werid Beard Brew Co. I think it is brilliant to see a business like this supporting local small businesses in the Ealing area. If you are eating out with the kids in Ealing, I think you will find this restaurant to be child friendly. They have a kids menu, colouring to keep them occupied and if you arrive early evening the restaurant isn’t too busy. The staff we came across seemed to be used to welcoming children and were very accommodating. You must check out the chalk board at the back of the restaurant, you are encouraged to leave comments and let the staff know what you thought of the burgers!
I loved the relaxed dinning style at Honest Burger. The menu is simple and they offer a good value children’s menu. The mini burgers come with rosemary salted chips (you can request no salt if you like), and all cost £5.50 with any juice. Amelia really enjoyed her meal and polished off the lot! So it was a big thumbs up from her.
I love a Gin and Tonic, so I was really pleased to find Honest Burger’s homemade Gin & Tonic on the menu! Served with with Psychopomp, cucumber and dill favoured. It’s exclusive to Honest Burger and a really refreshing drink. They also serve a range of cocktails too, if you fancy something a bit different. Local craft beer is on the menu too, as is a range of ciders, wines and soft drink options too.
If you are looking for something a bit special you can’t go wrong with the Cheese Truck Burger – £12.50 or if you are really hungry you can double up for £3.50! Comprised of Honest beef, deep-fried smoked British mozzarella, Old Winchester cheese, chipotle jam, pickles and rocket with homemade rosemary chips. You better be quick if you want to sample this amazing taste sensation as it is only available until the 31st March 2019.
Another option would be to go with The Ealing Burger – £12.50 (only available in the Ealing branch), beef, bacon, Dambuster Cheddar, Dorset Red, mustard mayo, onion, rocket, tomato and pickles with chips. Brent from Cheddar Deli in Northfields Avenue helped the, to pair two British Cheddars – one sharp, one smoked for a punchy double cheese flavour.
If you are still hungry then there are also some yummy side dishes too, we particularly enjoyed the BBQ chicken wings served with chipotle BBQ sauce and spring onions – £5.00
The Ealing Mummy’s verdict – fresh juicy burgers, with hand cut chips served with a smile from the friendly staff. Comfortable seating and welcoming atmosphere (definitely child friendly). Great drinks menu and supporting local businesses too! What’s not to like? Already looking forward to our next visit!
