Show Whether You're In Or Out...With Food

Leave or remain? It's all anyone's going to be talking about this week, but did you know you can show your EU referendum position through food and drink? Several restaurants have EU-themed choices on their menus. So what do you fancy?

Square Pie

Choose between In and Out pies until polling day, with results available on Square Pie's website — in a square pie chart. (At the time of writing, Out is on 53%.) The Out pie is made from British beef, 'banned wonky veg' and home-brewed ale, with the In pie consisting of Toulouse, chorizo, bratwurst and pepperoni sausage.

105c Commercial Street, E1 6BG; Westfield White City; Westfield Stratford; The O2

The Diner

Two burgers to pick between at The Diner: the Dave (French Charolais beef topped with Swiss cheese and caramelised onions, served on a brioche bun with garlic frites: €12.76) and the Boris (British beef topped with applewood smoked cheese and bacon, served on a floury bap with roast potatoes and gravy: £10). In standings published on 2 June, Dave was kicking Boris's arse in every Diner outlet.

105 Gloucester Road, SW7 4SS; 18 Ganton Street, W1F 7BU; 190 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8JL; 397 Strand, WC2R 0LX; 2 Jamestown Road, NW1 7BY; 21 Essex Road, N1 2SA; 600 Kingsland Road, E8 4AH; 128-130 Curtain Road, EC2A 3AQ; 4 Horner Square, E1 6EW

Herman Ze German

The wurst sellers are making their feelings perfectly clear with Ze Big Brexit Dog, which is half the size and double the price (at £9.90). We can't imagine many of them have been sold.

19 Villiers Street, WC2N 6ND; 33 Old Compton Street, W1D 5JU; 43 Charlotte Street, W1T 1RS

The Blues Kitchen

If all this argument is getting you down, have the best of both worlds at The Blues Kitchen: the burger of the month is called The Clash (Should I Stay Or Should I Go) and is a double stack, with English mustard, pickled onions, saveloy and red Leicester on one side, and sauerkraut, brie and chorizo on the other. Comes with a side of Fren-chips, all for £15.50.

111-113 Camden High Street, NW1 7JN; 134-146 Curtain Road, EC2A 3AR; 40 Acre Lane, SW2 5SP


There's a special Brexit menu being served at Hush in Mayfair on 23 June. For £45, choose between three courses of French or British inspired cuisine and a glass of champagne. It's Dorset crab vs steak tartare, crème brûlée vs sticky toffee pudding, French vs English fizz. Book in advance.

8 Lancashire Court, Brook Street, W1S 1EY
