Best barbecue joints in London
National Barbecue Week is 23rd – 30th May, but if you don’t fancy lighting up a barbecue yourself or if the great British summer makes such an event impossible, why not treat yourself to a meal out in a top barbecue restaurant, such as these ones in London?
Seven great places to enjoy a barbecue in London:
- One Sixty Smokehouse has branches in the City and in West Hampstead. Enjoy smoked and seasoned meat accompanied by an extensive list of beers from all over the world.
- Pitt Cue Co, just off Carnaby Street, started as a food truck on the South Bank before coming to its current premises. A second restaurant has recently opened in the City.
- The Smokehouse Islington opened in August 2013. It has an extensive beer list and wine sourced from family-owned vineyards. Meat and fish from top UK suppliers are grilled over charcoal and roasted and smoked over English oak.
- Duke’s Brew & Que boasts a greet selection of craft beers, which is the perfect accompaniment to this American-style barbecue. Smoking methods are derived from Texas, resulting in tender ribs and pulled pork.
- Berber & Q is a Middle Eastern restaurant in Haggerston. Enjoy the flavours of the Ottoman and North Africa, perhaps accompanied by craft beer, orange wine or a cocktail created from Middle Eastern ingredients.
- The Joint in Brixton started out in 2012 as a pop-up. Treat yourself to fresh free-range meat, including 16-hour slow-cooked pulled pork, accompanied by Brixton Brewery craft beer, St Reatham Lager or a speciality cocktail.
- Smoking Goat is a Thai barbecue in Denmark Street. Meat and day boat fish come direct from small production farmers and fishermen. Other ingredients, such as chillies, fish sauce and palm sugar, come from Bangkok for a truly authentic flavour.
