Warwickshire burger restaurant Libertine eyes expansion with new home

Libertine Burger

Award-winning Libertine Burger has moved to a new home as part of exciting plans to expand across the UK. 

Leamington-based Libertine already has a second branch in Rugby, but has upgraded to bigger premises opposite its former home on Warwick Street.

The move is part of a plan to grow the burger brand – which has a cult following on Instagram – as they open more branches around the UK in 2022 and beyond. 

Since bursting on to the UK street food scene in 2016 serving food from a pimped up Renault Master, Libertine has made a name for itself as one of the biggest burger restaurants in the country. 

Their perfect patties have led to them reaching the National Burger Awards finals three times, being crowned UK winners in 2019. Libertine also made it to the finals of both the British Street Food Awards and the Street Food Championships. 

Such is their success that in 2021 they launched a range of DIY Burger Kits, which are available for nationwide delivery.

Libertine founder Charles Harris, who lives in Leamington, said: “We’ve spent five years building the foundations of a business that has not only weathered the storm of a difficult period, but has continued to grow and serve our customers both locally and further afield. 

“The introduction of our delivery kits during the pandemic allowed people across the country to enjoy our burgers, but our local customers will always be close to our hearts so we are thrilled to be able to offer them even more space in Leamington, along with the added bonus of the space to install more technology to make our operation more efficient and scope to expand. 

“The new Leamington restaurant is the product of months of planning and will form the blueprint for what we’re planning will be a national rollout of Libertine Burger, so people across the country can enjoy our trademark burgers without having to cook them themselves.”

Libertine offers a range of signature beef, chicken and vegan-friendly burgers. It puts provenance first, sourcing its beef from award-winning butchers Aubrey Allen, with kits starting from just £25 for four burgers.

Simple instructions tell you exactly how to prepare and cook your burgers, with the option of adding extras like house sides and sauces.

The company is currently offering a limited edition Super Bowl DIY Kit priced £45 featuring the Libertine #1953 which includes everything to make two burgers complete with double 150g signature patties, American cheese, crispy smoky bacon, air-dried beef tomato, lettuce, pickles and Libertine Burger sauce, as well as Spiced Tater Tots and Buffalo Chicken Wings with blue cheese mayo plus Soda Folk cream soda cans and a Soda Folk branded foam finger.
