Lewis Hamilton-backed eatery Neat Burger was crowned ‘Best Vegan Restaurant Of The Year’ at the Deliveroo Restaurant Awards.

Hamilton partnered with hospitality organization The Cream Group and investors including UNICEF Ambassador and Tommaso Chiabra to create Neat Burger last year.

It recently unveiled its third UK location in Soho – and has stores in Camden Market and Central London – as well as operating a delivery system via Deliveroo.

‘One of the most challenging years’

In an online statement, CEO of Deliveroo Will Shu said: “This year has undoubtedly been one of the most challenging years the restaurant sector has ever faced. 

“Yet in the face of huge uncertainty, we have been inspired by the way restaurants across the UK and Ireland have stepped up and gone the extra mile to support their local communities while working tirelessly to keep their businesses going.

“From providing free meals to hospital staff working on the frontline, to delivering meals to vulnerable people, and going above and beyond to protect their staff – we want to recognize and say thank you to our amazing small and independent restaurant partners.”

Neat Burger has three stores operating in London.

‘A greener future’

Responding to the award on Instagram, Neat Burger said: “We are absolutely delighted and want to take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you Game Changer’s who voted for Neat Burger as part of the Deliveroo Awards.

“Your interest in reversing the effects of climate change has been recognized, and we think you’re pretty awesome! Here’s to many more burgers and a greener future!”
