5. Trinity Arms- London

If you’re going out for a burger in Brixton on the 24th, make sure you pay the Trinity Arms a visit. With an entire burger shack menu, you know you're going to get the goods here. There are six types to choose from, but we say go for The Lamb. It’s a spring Dorset lamb burger topped with homemade aioli, beefy tomatoes, red onion and shredded lettuce. All with a portion of rosemary fries to go with.

If you're in Brighton on the 24th, make it your business to try one of Mash Tun’s burgers. A much-loved pub with Sidekick Kitchen providing the eats, it’s a must-visit for any burger lover. There’s obviously a number of dreamy options, but we say chomp down on the almighty Chewbacca. It contains a dirty buttermilk fried chicken thigh, ‘bangin’ fried onions and a homemade satay sauce.

10. Dirty Bones - London

‘Mac ‘n’ cheese doesn't belong in a burger’ - said no one ever. If you think you’ve seen it all, you’ve seen nothing until you’ve laid your eyes on Dirty Bones’ notorious MacDaddy burger. It’s comprised of a brisket and dry aged steak patty, then topped with pulled beef short rib a towering pile of mac ‘n’ cheese, finished with burnt onion and ale BBQ sauce. This is no tidy burger to eat, so we suggest one of their stupendous cocktails as an accompaniment.
