Backstreet Diner

American style diner food, with locally sourced ingredients and rare breed meats.

American style diner food, with locally sourced ingredients and rare breed meats. It’s not your average burger van that is for sure.

Founded by Ben Lyndsay, formerly at St John and award-winning gastro pubs who knows all  about quality meats and have a solid understanding of toppings and sauces and it shows with my favourite ‘The Beast’ – two patties with baconbriepulled pork and fried onions. No thin patties here, extra large, no skimping on anything, pick up those napkins, you’ll need them! Some people are put off by the humble burger van, but don’t be – you’ll be in for the biggest and best surprise possible, and left with nothing but greasy fingers and a smile.

You may also find that every time you go they have some crazy special going on – they like to mix it up – such as Asian Style Brussel Sprouts. Yup.

After working for the last 14 years in London restaurants, from 5 wonderful years at St John to running award winning gastro pubs, it was time to get out and have a bit of fun. So we have tried to do it right.   We use great English produce to make a really great Burger. We use rare breed meats and local suppliers wherever possible. We like the simple honest cooking of good ingredients.”
