Honest Burgers are set to bring their homemade Honest butcher’s burgers to Manchester in a week long pop-up at Northern Monk’s Refectory Bar in the Northern Quarter.
Running from Monday, March 11th to Sunday, March 17th, the pop-up is a prelude to Honest Burgers’ official opening on Bridge Street opposite Crazy Pedro’s this spring.
Renowned for their 100% British beef patties made in their own butchery, served medium rare (pink) – or however you like them, and homemade rosemary salted chips cut fresh every day, the pop-up will give Mancunians the chance to try a sample of Honest Burgers’ menu alongside 12 of Northern Monk’s finest beers, six special guest beers and guest brewer Interboro NYC. Included on the menu will be Honest Burgers’ signature ‘Honest’ burger – featuring British beef, homemade red onion relish, smoked bacon, cheddar, lettuce and homemade pickles.
Tom Barton, co-founder of Honest Burgers, said: “We’re big fans of Northern Monk. They treat beer like we treat burgers and chips. No fuss and frills, just good quality. We’re looking forward to bringing our great British burgers, homemade rosemary salted chips, and our US-inspired Tribute burger, vegan Plant burger and bacon gravy to Northern Monk and the people of Manchester. We’re hoping a lot of people will come down to say hello and see what we’re all about before we officially open our doors next month.”

Honest Burgers was co-founded by friends Tom Barton and Philip Eeles in Brighton 2009, where they started out cooking great British burgers in a field at a local food festival. The following year they opened a tiny restaurant in Brixton Market, making everything from scratch and cycling eight miles every day to pick up the best beef available.
The company opened its own butchery in 2017, which enabled them to make their own patties rather than buy them in made to spec. Using 100% British chuck and rib cap, Honest Burgers chops the meat rather than mincing it (which keeps in the flavour and juices) and serves it medium rare alongside homemade rosemary-salted chips. They also work with small indie breweries nearby each of their restaurants to serve brilliant local beers.
