Where to Find the Best Onion Rings in London

Where to Find the Best Onion Rings in London

One of my favourite side orders when I’m eating out in London is a portion of hot, crunchy, deep-fried onion rings. There’s very little that comes close to being as satisfying as biting through the savoury outer crust into a soft, sweet ring of onion, so here’s a roundup of five of the best onion rings to be found on London’s dining scene.


London’s posh burger joint, Byron, serves up an array of more than just proper hamburgers - mac ‘n’ cheese, courgette fries, and wedge salad are all on the menu, but it’s the onion rings that stand out for me. For £3.25 you get a bowl of massive, lightly battered rings. They’re crisp on the outside and the generous ring of onion in the centre is impressive.

Psychic Burger

Based out in Dalston, from the kitchen of bar and club Birthdays is Psychic Burger. It’s a concept born from in vogue American-style comfort food – but don’t let that put you off. The onion rings here are super-sized golden rings of joy, and you even get one included when you order a burger!

Dirty Burger

In addition to slinging out their eponymous burgers, Dirty Burger have two side dishes to shout about - crinkle cut fries and onion fries. While the latter are not strictly rings, they are nonetheless a brilliant example of deep-fried, battered onion, and one of my favourite sides in London. The onion fries are essentially big chunks of onion fried in a salt and pepper batter and garnished with sea salt and black pepper, served in a chip shop paper bag. They’re £3 and it’s money very well spent. Dirty Burger is part of the Soho House Group, has two restaurants in Kentish Town and Vauxhall.

Juicy B*stard Burger Craft

The burger food concept formerly known as Juicy B*stard has been rebranded Burger Craft, but don’t let that distract you from the frankly excellent thin and crispy onion rings. These spicy battered red onion rings come with a great buffalo hot sauce for dipping, and the portion is pretty generous too, with 10+ rings for £3.50. Juicy B*stard are based near Paddington station.


For £3 in MEATLiquor, London’s superlative dive bar, you’re served a portion of huge, fluffy battered onion rings on their trademark silver tray topped with patterned greaseproof paper. If you haven’t experienced the MEATLiquor vibe, make sure you do, and whatever you order, don’t forget the onion rings.
