A popular Reading restaurant has been named as having the 'best burger and American' in London at an awards event.

The annual Deliveroo Awards celebrate the best and most loved independent restaurants across the UK and Ireland, from local independent burger joints to neighbourhood sushi bars and everything in between.

Fighting off competition across the region, 7bone in Reading was chosen by voters as their favourite burger and American restaurant.

7bone was founded by Matthew Mollicone and Richard Zammit in 2013 and now operates 10 restaurants across the country.

On the win, 7bone said: "We are genuinely over the moon to have won, and it’s testament to all the hard work the teams put in day in, day out in our restaurants to make sure we give all our diners the best possible experience (regardless of whether they’re eating in bed, in their car, or in one of our restaurants)."

7bone's Reading restaurant has recently moved from its former home on St Mary’s Butts to Unit 3. Meadow Road.

Deliveroo founder and CEO Will Shu said: "I say it every year, but the standard of finalists and winners for this year’s Restaurant Awards has been incredible.

"I’ve had the pleasure of meeting a number of restaurant owners to hear about their stories, food, and the positive impact they’ve had on their local communities and we are proud to partner with such an incredible array of dedicated restaurants to deliver food from around the world to doorsteps across the UK and Ireland.

"A huge well done to all of this year’s winners."
