Inside Wimpy, the UK's forgotten fast food chain

We went to one of the few remaining Wimpy restaurants in London.

Wimpy was first introduced to the UK in 1954 and became one of the most popular fast food chains in the country. That was until McDonald’s entered the market in 1974.

In the 70’s there were over 500 Wimpy restaurants across the UK, now that’s down to just 80. The chain was famous for some of its menu items such as the Wimpy Burger and the Bender in a Bun.
