Brighton’s Burger Brothers wins Britain’s Best Burger

Brighton’s Burger Brothers wins Britain’s Best Burger

Burger Brothers, Brighton has been announced as the winner of Britain’s Best Burger competition, sponsored by Hellmann’s.

The independently owned Burger Brothers, which prides itself on an original and unique approach to its burger menu and has a ‘cult’ following in the South East, beat stiff competition from five other finalists to scoop the prize: £10,000 PR support.

Burger Brothers came out on top, following two stages of judging where its menu was assessed against strict criteria including originality, quality of ingredients, chef skill, range of choices and customer feedback.

Nadz Nwokoro, co-owner and head chef at Burger Brothers, Brighton said: “We are so unbelievably proud and grateful to be awarded the Britain's Best Burger title. For such a small independent company to be acknowledged by Hellmann’s is truly mind-blowing!”

Gavin Lucas, the burger blogger known as ‘Burgerac’, and owner of Burgerac’s Burgershack said: "The Burger Brothers is a worthy winner of the Britain’s Best Burger competition. It is burger excellence delivered by very nice guys on a street in Brighton. They don’t conform to any standard formula yet combine quality ingredients in a way that delivers pure eating joy.”

Rhodri Morgan, marketing manager at Unilever Food Solutions, said: “Our hunt for Britain’s Best Burger has seen entries of fantastic quality from hundreds of venues, but we’re delighted to hand the title to Burger Brothers. Its burger menu stood out from the crowd and is a fantastic representation of the exceptionally high standard of burgers on offer across the UK.”

The other finalists in the competition were The Grazing Shed (Cardiff), Annie’s Burger Shack (Nottingham), Meat59 (Torquay), Jam Jar (Newcastle) and Burgers and Beers (Edinburgh). Each receives £2,500 of PR support to help put their burger on the map.

Britain’s Best Burger competition is part of Hellmann’s ‘Grilltopia’ campaign which inspires operators to take their customers to burger heaven.
