the home of REAL

salt beef

home CUREd, hand carved meat

The home-cured, hand-carved meat at Tongue and Brisket is a tribute to salt beef sandwiches done simply and perfectly, and that ethos fully extends to every other sandwich on our mouth-watering menu!

From the founders of the iconic B&K Salt Beef Bar, we bring you Tongue & Brisket. Founder Bambos Georgiou started life in the salt beef trade in 1950s, working in the West End's Windmill Street. His reputation soared when he was approached by the owner of Selfridges to open a salt beef bar in their Food Hall. After establishing the Brass Rail, Bambos went to open B&K Salt Beef Bar in Edgware and Hatch End.

For over 30 years, B&K Salt Beef Bar has thrived as a successful family business, and three generations on, we bring you B&K Salt Beef Bar's little sister, Tongue & Brisket in Holborn, Soho and most recently, Goodge Street. 

"Traditional homemade and high quality food are the pillar stones of our business. We pride ourselves on pickling all of our own salt beef as well making homemade traditional dishes."
