We love Summer grub more than anything else…
For a few precious months we can cram happy drinkers into our tiny pub garden, the beer flows steadily and we can get more adventurous with our food offerings.
During winter our menu tends to give the customer exactly what they want. We’re talking rich, stodgy goodness that delivers on comfort and certainly doesn’t skimp on calories. By the time the Summer comes around we understand that our food needs to reflect the changing demands of the customer. Just like no one likes the idea of pulling a woolly jumper on when they hit the beach, no one wants a steaming pile of sausage and mash on a hot summer’s day.
Last year we made a big splash with our sharing platters, providing drinkers with enough variety to allow them to eat around the world, all whilst avoiding the kind of stodge that only serves to bog down an afternoon’s drinking session. This year the sharing platters are coming back, but we’ve taken on board your advice and can now offer them for 2, 4 or 6 people. In addition to adapting the quantities of our platters we’ve also developed a couple more concepts that we can’t wait to show off to you.
Get yo snack on.
If you’re not quite up to tackling one of our platters, but find that you’re getting a little peckish whilst you’re here then you’ll be pleased to hear that we’ve got a whole new range of bar snacks for you to smash into your gobs. Part of Matt and Neil’s original vision was to offer affordable pub snacks that were a cut above the average. You’ll still be able to get a standard pack of crisps, but we’re also happy to offer our own blend of Bombay Mix, an in-house Scotch-Pickled Egg and a rather special Sausage Roll that is sure to be a daily sell-out.
Our bar snacks have been designed to work in tandem with the selection of summery brews that will be gracing our bar this summer. Matt’s been hard at work scheduling the ale deliveries for the upcoming weeks, ensuring that each and every keg blends seamlessly with the Specials board and bar snacks we’ll be introducing in the coming weeks. Come on in during the next fortnight to get a free taste of what’s to come.
Fancy trying your hand at recreating our dishes this summer? We’re opening up our kitchens to the public for a string of workshops this summer giving budding cooks the opportunity to see how we create our popular platters and bar snacks. Once we’ve shown you how, we’ll turn the kitchen over to you and see how you fare sending a few orders out yourself, just be warned: our head chef will beat the pass and won’t be sending out any food that’s below standard!
Keep an eye out on our events board to see when we’ll be holding these events and don’t hesitate to book early as these spots are bound to disappear fast!
