Fast food chain to close flagship restaurant in days

Patty & Bun has burger restaurants in London and Brighton but will bid farewell to one of its capital sites in a matter of days.

Since opening its first branch in James Street, London in November 2012 it has pleased fans who branded it the home of the “best burgers”.

The fast food joint will pull down the shutters on its popular Soho branch on Saturday, October 28.

It comes just over seven years after the site opened on Old Compton Street which runs East to West through the Westminster Borough.

The restaurant confirmed the closure on social media where fans of Patty & Bun shared their disappointment.

Staff at the branch wrote on Facebook: “Yo Patty crew this will sadly be our last trading week at our beloved P&B Old Compton St. Over seven years old now, it’s a true patty little vibe den.”

They claimed that the decision was out of their control, though noted that they will still be serving right up until Saturday.

Several people commented on the sad exit of the branch from Old Compton Street.

One Patty & Bun fan wrote: “Such a shame. Keep going strong and will be back to another venue soon.” Another said: “That’s a shame. This was always the spot for me.”

It’s not all bad news, however, as the other sites – which includes seven others in London, one in Brighton, and two pop-up sites, will remain open for business.

Burger lovers in Soho can get their fix at the nearby Kingly Street store beyond October 28.

News of the closure comes after Patty & Bun agreed a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) in a bid to avoid insolvency, following the closure of the Notting Hill branch earlier this year.

It has become the latest burger joint to announce closures after the collapse of Byron Burger.

The brand folded in January 2023 before being sold to Tristar Foods which saved 653 jobs across its 12 restaurants.

One will close this week, however, on Sunday, October 29.

Byron Burger is closing its branch on George Street, Oxford and also has plans to lose its Norwich site in the near future.
