It will serve up a mouthwatering US inspired menu curated by the team behind The Ship in Elswick, including consultation from chef Adam James Bennett (who previously worked under Marco Pierre White and was the private chef for the Moroccan King).  The new menu includes a unique Brisket, which will be included in several dishes including the Dry Aged Beef Brisket lightly sauced in bourbon and barbeque; the Brisket Mac & Cheese; and the Smoked Brisket Banquette which can be ordered for groups of 12-16 people.

A variety of Signature Burgers and ‘Dogs’ alongside a selection of delicious drinks, including milkshakes, classic cocktails, local ales and American Lagers will also be on offer.

Starting from next week Sunday roasts will be added to the extensive menu with all the trimmings including proper gravy and fresh roasties.

The Sunday meat, sourced from local farmers, will be dry-aged and smoked in-house in view of the restaurant guests, using the finest grade of Himalayan Salt to intensify the flavours.
