My favourite butty creation would have to be our Christmas special. Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and maris piper chips held in a soft white buttered roll. The ultimate festive feast!

My favourite butty starts with a base of a crusty bread roll followed by twice cooked maris piper chips sprinkled with our signature butty salt then topped with our very own cheesy Marmite sauce. 


Everyone loves a story of how great ideas came to be so here's ours... 

Dubai, 2014 is where our story began. We met as teachers in a large international school and instantly bonded over our love of nostalgia and a passion for good food.


Travelling the world became a priority and we soon found ourselves in the four corners of the globe sampling all manner of eateries. Somewhere between gnocchi in Italy and dim sum in Hong Kong, we realised that there was one dish that we always craved... the chip butty. 

Ask your friends and you'll find that the chip butty clearly holds a place in many hearts but despite this, we couldn't find a menu dedicated to this classic. So, we decided to make our own and The Big Butty Bar concept was born. We packed up our Dubai lives, said goodbye to our glitzy high rise views, shipped Katie's beloved rescue cat across continents and braved the launch of The Big Butty Bar in the home of the chip butty itself, Great Britain.
