The B.East roared to life in 2012 adding some genuine flavour and a unique vibe to its upper-Lygon territory. The second venture from the team behind Section 8 and Ferdydurke, The B.East is a specialist burger joint that also works well for drinks only.

The B.East offers an inviting array of beef, venison, chicken and vegetarian burgers, plus interesting sides. Everything apart from the buns is made on the premises.

On drinks there's an impressive range of beers and wines. Cocktails tend towards playful, such as Blood on the Tracks - "a Redskin in a cocktail" - and Frank Zappa, a cream-free Piña Colada.

There's an unpretentious ambience here, which embraces art and music (there’s enough surf rock to rival a Tarantino soundtrack) in an impressive space. Local artists were encouraged via social media to ‘paste up for a burger’, riffing on different beastly themes.

The result is a sprawling collage of the weird and wonderful work covering one full wall of the venue. Burgers, Beers and Bands feature 7 nights a week and a really fun rock and pop culture quiz on Tuesdays rounds out the weekly festivities.
