Summer Is Here!
The sun has well and truly got his hat on! Summer has arrived: Britain is basking in beautiful sunny days… Unlikely but true and it’s given us the perfect backdrop to launch our Very British Summer Festival.
Here at Chef & Brewer, we want to make this our biggest and best summer to date and we’re feeling pretty confident that you are going to enjoy our new limited edition summer menu.
Best Of British Dishes
We tasked our talented chefs with creating a new limited edition summer menu that celebrates the very best of a typical British summer. With old favourites featured such as pork pies and the distinctive Coronation chicken and the British favourite, Eton Mess for the sweet tooth fans out there, you’ll find something for everyone to discover and enjoy. Packed full of new and unique tastes, it truly is a celebration of everything that is great about British summer time.
Hand-Raised Cornish Pork Pie and Salad
A golden oldie, the humble pork pie had to feature on our new limited edition menu. Our chefs have sourced a deliciously tasty hand raised Cornish pork pie. Arguably, the nation’s favourite, the pork pies appeal is unrivalled, perfect for that Summer picnic vibe. We’re confident you’ll be devouring this perfect pie again and again. To take it to next level brilliance we have partnered our limited edition pork pie with caramelised red onion chutney, lamb’s lettuce, sweet pear, candied walnuts and crumbled Shropshire blue cheese its a culinary delight.
Did you know: To make walnuts super sweet with a really good crunch they are soaked in water and rolled in sugar – divine!
Scottish Mussels and Fries
A culinary delight, mussels are a dish that our guests love and had definitely earnt themselves a place in our limited edition Very British Summer festival menu. Sourced from the West and North Scotland coastlines, our Scottish mussels really are a little taste of British summer. Rope grown, the mussels are sourced in a sustainable way to ensure minimum impact on the environment without compromising on the great natural flavours of the mussels. Served in a creamy white wine sauce topped with samphire and served with fries, garlic & rosemary mayo and a lemon wedge we're confident you'll love this summer dish.
Did you know: Samphire is a very rich source of calcium and is an excellent complimentary flavour and texture to the mussels - double winner!
Chefs Coronation Chicken
Get ready for our version of a classic! Marinated to infuse the flavours in the curry sauce, this is a dish best served whilst enjoying the sunshine. Inspired from the great British classic it goes excellently with a glass or two of white wine. Enjoy half a fresh roasted chicken, marinated in curry sauce and topped with toasted flaked almonds and fresh coriander. Served with fries, dressed mixed salad, mango salsa, garlic & coriander glazed corn on the cob and a lemon wedge - It is a visual and sensory treat!
For The Sweet Tooth Fans
Our summer puddings are sure to impress even the fussiest pudding connoisseurs. With a range of classic British puddings, these are desserts we know you'll love.
When we were selecting puddings for our Very British Summer festival limited edition menu we knew we needed a classic to take centre stage and our Eton Mess was an obvious choice. A much-loved classic, this traditional English dessert is a summer essential. Refreshing and decadent all at once the crushed meringue, raspberry coulis, fresh strawberries and raspberries make it a Summer winner.
Did you know: Eton Mess was first mentioned in print in 1893 and it is commonly believed to originate from Eton College and is served at the annual cricket match against the pupils of Harrow School.
Washing summer down with a refreshing tipple of choice is a great way to further enjoy the long summer days whilst kicking back in a beer garden with your nearest and dearest. We know there's nothing better than a refreshing gin & tonic this Summer and that’s why we have further extended our range and featured some of our most loved gins for you to enjoy in our Very British Summer festival.
Featuring Tanqueray Sevilla Orange and the New Chase Pink Grapefruit gin, get set for a gin-awakening! With new ciders and a huge selection of Fever Tree tonics to explore there is plenty to enjoy. We’ve also got some fresh new drinks offers to toast too – There’s 2 For £6 on bottled beer and cider and not forgetting our 2 for 1 on fizz cocktails to help get the party started. Cheers!
