The Joint Marylebone London

Meat lovers in London’s Marylebone are already well-served with Patty and Bun, MEATliquor, Le Relais Venise, Tommi’s Burger Joint and Ginger Pig Butchers but there’s a meaty new joint in town.


festoon lighting, long refectory tables and wooden benches give it street party feel

The Joint started as a pop up in Brixton in 2012 by Warren Dean and Daniel Fiteni – now they are shaking up the meat market in central London with simple fast food with a twist.



Dishes come as ‘sides’ or ‘mains’ in greaseproof paper or on paper plates and once done, the wrapping is pushed away to the waste troughs on the communal tables. You’re right, it doesn’t sound that elegant but it’s bloody tasty.

The interior of The Joint, complete with festoon lighting, long refectory tables and wooden benches, has been designed to make guests feel they are at a street party. Bare wood walls and metalwork add edge to the 65 cover restaurant, while a large painting of a bird adds a splash of vibrant colour. Downstairs, a 25 cover cocktail bar features vividly patterned monochrome walls and high tables and stools.

The corn needs a little work – we had great corn cob with lime juice and Latin melted cheese at Grill Shack, if they wanted some inspiration. The homemade spicy barbeque and chipotle sauces are essential for the damp fries (£2.75) and pretty onion rings (£4.50) which are also a bit lacking compared to all the effort that goes into the meat and buns.  The freshly baked fig & vanilla sourdough buns at The Joint come from the Bad Boys Bakery at Brixton Prison where  Fiteni  trains  up  inmates  as  part  of  a  rehabilitation  program  with  the  intention  of  employing  them  as  new apprentices once released.


Mains come in a great tasting homemade bun or wrap and are classic BBQ fare or with Asian flair. There is even a vegetarian option for those not too squeamish about all the flesh on show.

The beef burger (£9.50) is plump and juicy with aioli and bacon relish with all the salad trimmings and heaps of meat in and out of the bun.

The hot wings and BBQ riblets are the best you’ll taste London.

Cocktails are good, properly mixed by this good looking team on the night we went,


served in Kilner jam jars with a straw.

Wines tend to be Aussie or South African, simple and well-chosen at £20 – £28 a bottle and there are St. Reatham (sarf London humour) and Brixton beers at £5.

Its not cheap but the the twist seems to be the quality meat, tasty sides which come with great service and simple style.

Thumbs up!
