We are James and Zoë, aka Slap & Pickle.
A chance meeting (over chips, what else?) lead to romance and, latterly, a beautiful business relationship.

As our strapline says in hot pink neon, we major in 'burgers, vibes and loaded fries'.


We use Swaledale's fabulous beef in burgers dubbed by Feed head chef/general legend Jono Hawthorne as 'the best in Leeds', and smother the finest fries you've ever put in your mouth with ingredient combos that'll make you weep with joy (or at least stick a pic on your Instastories).


We call ourselves an 'omni diner' - and by that, we mean

we can tailor the vast majority of our soul-satisfying, oral-gasm-generating menu items to fit vegan, vegetarian

or meat-eating diets.  


Where can you try it for yourself? Seven days a week at all these sites: Assembly Underground and Beer Hawk in Leeds City Centre; The Old King's Arms in Horsforth, West Leeds, Heist Brew Co. and The Dark Horse in Sheffield, from our partnership with Vocation & Co.in Hebden Bridge, and at Society Manchester.


We offer dine-in and click & collect, and you'll also find us on Deliveroo, UberEats, Just Eat, and certain other city-specific delivery platforms.


Our now-not-so-little burger business is growing fast - keep your eye on our social feeds @slapandpickles for latest updates.


It's also important to mention that mental health matters to us. In common with most of the 7.4 billion people currently residing on this rock we call Earth, we've both struggled with our own issues, and we know how important acknowledgement, understanding, awareness and compassion are. We do our bit where we can, so don't be surprised if it's a topic that we rattle on about often.
