The Best of the Brunch

Aug 11 2016

We think that a lazy morning eating brunch while hanging out with friends or reading the paper is the best way to kick off a great weekend.  

So creating a brand new brunch menu was a dream job for our founder, Tristan. The menu is now available every weekend in our Bristol restaurants on Stokes Croft (from the 16 July) and Broad Quay (from the 23 July).

Adding brunch to our repertoire is something we’ve been thinking of doing ever since we created a breakfast pie for the Rugby World Cup in 2011.  It was hosted in New Zealand so to catch the games live here you had to get up at the crack of dawn and watch them over breakfast.  And what better rugby breakfast is there than a pie?!  Our limited edition recipe went down a storm back then with rugby fans and we’ve been waiting for the perfect time and place to launch it properly ever since: enter The Banger pie, now available in Bristol.

The Banger 2

The Banger is a pie packed with free range, British pork sausage and smoked bacon with roast plum tomatoes and a crisp rӧsti potato top. Served on a bed of Bubble & Squeak and topped with a free range poached egg it comes with a side of homemade smoky baked beans.

Then there’s the Wild Brunch Skillet: the same key ingredients as The Banger pie but cooked and served in a cast iron skillet.

Perfect if you want to skip the pastry, this ‘brunch in a pan’ is gluten free and is one of four Skillets to choose from.  The rest of the Skillet range includes:

Rӧsti Royale Skillet (Gluten Free): smoked salmon, cream cheese and rӧsti potato topped with a poached egg and lemon and herb crème fraiche, with toast on the side.

Hashed-Up Skillet:  British salt beef hash with West Country Cheddar topped with a poached egg and a side of toast and homemade smoky baked beans.

Cheese Louise Skillet: Halloumi cheese and sweet onion hash topped with a poached egg and lemon and herb crème fraiche with toast and a side of homemade smoky baked beans.

There’s also lots of stuff to have on sourdough toast.

And if you’re looking for something lighter, try our new bowls of overnight oats (gluten free) or granola.

The new weekend brunch menu is available on Saturdays (9.00am-12.30pm) and Sundays (10.00am-12.30pm) at our Stokes Croft and Broad Quay restaurants.
