A few weeks ago Gav and I were invited on a date night to Patty & Bun. The restaurant is placed in the heart of Brighton Laines and is styled towards the mid end burger eating experience.
We booked in for a weekday date and hadn’t expected it to be too busy just after the work day finished.
We arrived and around 3 tables were taken. We were seated at a table of two in the window, nice for people watching but if the weather had been warmer additional seating was outside.
The staff were were attentive but not annoying and were happy to converse with us when we wanted to and step away intuitively.
The cocktails were 2 for £10 and we both went for an Expresso Martini. These arrived quickly and we perused the menu while enjoying.
For our sides we decided to forgo the chips and try something new. We went for the beef brisket nuggets and the winger winger chicken dinner. The beef brisket stole the show. It was tender and full of flavour, the portion was enough to share and was our fave dish of the meal. The chicken starters was full of flavour however it was more a tangy tomato then a BBQ sauce.
For the mains we had the Smokey Robinson and the Hot Chic. They came and firstly they were much bigger than we assumed. If there’s a place for a dirty, messy burger Patty & Bun have it down. It was the messiest and funnest dining experience I’ve ever had. The burgers are so full they fall apart and that’s all part of the fun of their experience. My burger was packed full of flavour and I’ll definitely be back to visit again!
To finish we had a Brighton Bier and a Pink Lemonade whicb we both recommend. The lemonade was a great simple drink after having so much flavour. They also offer milkshakes which we did see other customers have and these looked epic but we were both far too full to try them!
What Gav said:
Patty and Bun is a great place to eat – a lively joint with the friendliest of service, delivering a gloriously sloppy, tasty burger. The starters were fantastic too, with the Beef Brisket Nuggets in danger of stealing the show completely. With an impossibly tasty Expresso Martini to liven things further, our visit was as fun as the food delicious.
