A Family Business
The home-cured, hand-carved meat at B and K 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!
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 on to open B&K Salt Beef Bar in Edgware. This is where the rest of the family quickly learned the Salt Beef trade and decades later his sons and grandsons carry on his legacy in both the Edgware and Hatch End restaurants.
"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."
