THE BUNS IN BLC

BLC was born for the buns, the burgers, that's why we're here to offer you the best burgers for your beer and your bucks in our splendid pub setting. You're spoilt for choice with our mega selection of lip-smacking burgers, from the VIC MAC, VEG MAC, HUNTER, MCLOVIN, MeatFREE, BACON TRIPLE,  BBO or the humble CHEESEBURGER, each one pleasantly packed and guaranteed to satisfy. And we won't be offended if you want to pimp it, add another patty, more cheese, a hash brown even ... stop it!

DON'T FORGET THE SIDES...   

They've become pretty legendary. SCOOBY SNACKS are crispy halloumi nuggets served with a dunkable sweet chilli sauce, DIRTY SRIRACHA FRIES or SQUID if you're feeling sexy and want some extra heat, they look pretty darn pretty too. Our chicken breast GOUJONS are soaked in buttermilk for extra tenderness, as our WINGS before the buffalo drenching commences and our fries come plain, dirty, spicy or nostalgic, remember the southern fired curly fries from your school dinners, yep, those!

SIMPLICITY IS KEY ... 

Our meat comes in fresh from our local butcher, R&E butchers, our beef pattie's are hand smashed, seasoned and grilled to order by our skilled Chefs. Our chicken is free range and soaked in buttermilk for extra tenderness. Our menu is fun, fresh, tasty, family, friend and date night friendly.

FRIENDS / FAMILIES / VEGANS / COELIACS

BLC - What, when, how?

Remember Street Food Fridays?? They were a brilliant introduction to our business a few years ago, inviting a different trader into our pub courtyard every Friday presented a welcomed diversity to our food offer and was a great way to support fellow traders. Always heavily inspired by the St Food movement and keen to get involved, Tom created ‘Bun Lovin’ Criminals’, a fun burger brand with simplicity and quality at the heart of the menu, influenced by pop culture references and a play on the infamous band the Fun Lovin Criminals.

During the first lockdown we were aware that our seven day week menus weren't sustainable, if we were to reopen we had to streamline our offer and BLC was not only a tried and tested product, it was casual dining at its best, we've never looked back!

BLC TO THE RESCUE

Without BLC I don't think we'd be here today quite honestly, during the second and third lockdowns we were able to offer this as a weekend takeaway service, selling out every week quite simply saved our bacon, kept us afloat so we live to fight another day. Our DIY kits also became a fun & popular addition to the menu even delivering to as far as Kent for a family zoom celebration.
