‘Purveyors of fine burgers, fries, craft beers and good times’ the opening on the homepage of their website says it all, as Half Man! Half Burger! brings a welcome new addition to the town with the first dedicated fully licensed Burger restaurant to hit St Leonards.
With their mission being to create perfect hamburgers, fries and sides. Friends Rory and Matt launched Half Man! Half Burger!
HMHB was launched less than two years ago in Brighton with a pop up burger shack, shortly after this they showcased their burgers at the UK Summer festival circuit before deciding to open up their first permanent home at the Marina Court St Leonards, where they officially sold out on their first day of opening.
The two friends got stared partially with a Locate East Sussex Grant to help cover the start up costs including refurbishing the venue. Locate East Sussex also introduced them to useful contacts at Hastings Borough Council to sort out licences and meet the relevant regulations.
The business was inspired by pilgrimages to authentic American burger joints. Their burger patties are made from grass fed local cattle, whist their buns are freshly hand made by local bakery Judges.
With plenty on the menu to choose from including gluten free buns available and children’s meals too there is definitely something for everyone.
I for one cannot wait to get myself down to HMHB to try out some of their tasty delights.
