Five Guys to open first UK site in London's Covent Garden


Five Guys, the popular US burger chain, has confirmed it will open its first UK site in the former Long Acre bar unit in Covent Garden, with further openings in the pipeline.

First opened in 1986, and named after the five brothers who run it, the premium burger operator sells only fresh-ground beef and offers just two choices of fries as sides.

It will be joined in London, in early July, by fellow US import Shake Shack , which makes its debut in the Covent Garden piazza. The chain is founded by US restaurant legend Danny Meyer, author of the acclaimed hospitality book Setting The Table.
