Formerly a petrol station, we didn’t know what to expect from Boneyard, but what we experienced was one of the best burgers in London in all its American road-trip inspired glory.
With a menu created by Exec chef John Pollard (formerly of Soho House group) and an industrial interior by restaurateur, Robert Newmark, Boneyard serves up a deliciously succulent Bonemarrow burger (the star of the show) alongside ribs, buttermilk fried chicken, and a host of sides.
We started with the seasonal special Christmas Burger (£8). Contained within brioche buns, filled with two patties, one of turkey and the other of pork wrapped in bacon! The cranberry sauce and mustard mayonnaise compliment the dish perfectly with the addition of cabbage, Brussel sprouts and two little pigs in blankets skewered on the top. This burger is huge and could have been shared between two along with some sides. Their signature Bone Marrow Burger (£8.50) could also have been shared but we went the full hog and ate as much as we could. The two patties in this burger are so deliciously rich, they melt in the mouth. As a big burger fan, this really is on the top end of the best burgers out there. There is a wide selection of beer and wine to go along with this type of food but though you’re not allowed to drink inside the actual restaurant, you can drink to the side of the restaurant which is a nice little sheltered area which has two fire pits to keep you warm on the wintry days and evenings.
Daniel, the manager tells us they will be continuing to experiment with seasonal and festive inspired burgers on a monthly basis, so keep an eye out…
If you fancy something a little less rich there is a lovely green salad with butter leaf lettuce, avocado and Lebanese cucumbers (£4.50). The menu also features excellent fried chicken that you can get in halves or just wings. The pork ribs, quite literally fell off the bone too. The food is served until 3am which is great if you are out in Shoreditch with a late-night craving for one of the city’s best burgers.
