It’s that time of year again: National Burger Day. On Thursday 27th August, restaurants will be flogging their beefy (and fried chicken) wares for a fraction of the price, and on top of this, you can grab special burgers and limited edition bites for one day only. Here’s what NBD deals we’re loving in London this year:

1. For Burgers and Free Booze: Honest Burgers

The Lowdown: This National Burger Day, Honest Burgers is offering everyone (aged over 18) a free can of Burger Beer when they order a burger to eat-in. Burger Beer is Honest’s house lager, developed in collaboration with Brighton-based brewers Laine Brew Co. And as for eats, you can’t go wrong with the Honest Burger – a mouthwatering stack of Honest beef, red onion relish, smoked bacon, cheddar, lettuce and pickles with homemade rosemary salted chips.
