St Austell Brewery launches summer menu
The group’s seasonal offering includes light bites, classic British dishes and sharing plates.
St Austell Brewery has unveiled its new summer menu, striving to cater for every preference and dietary requirement.
New dishes include Cornish line-caught mackerel, grilled with romesco sauce and sourdough, as well as classic fish and chips with Newlyn- and Brixham-landed hake. For every portion of fish and chips sold, 25p will be donated to St Austell Brewery’s Charitable Trust to help fund life-saving defibrillators in each pub’s local community.
The menu also offers a new selection of sharing flatbreads, including curried cauliflower and roasted chickpea, smoked mackerel and horseradish, and Italian prosciutto and mozzarella.
As always, there are plenty of new options for vegans and vegetarians, from roasted red pepper and pea tagliatelle to miso and chilli-glazed aubergine.
Lewis Allington, the group's St Austell Brewery, comments: "We’re really excited about this new summer menu, particularly the ingredients we’ve sourced from our suppliers across the West Country.
"All the fish served in our managed pub estate is supplied by the Matthew Stevens family in St Ives, who have been delivering the highest quality fresh produce for over 20 years. Sourced ethically, using sustainable fishing methods with an emphasis on delivering excellence to their customers, they predominately buy from the market at Newlyn and day boats out of St Ives, Cadgwith, and Fowey, among others.
"All dairy on our menus is sourced from Trewithen, which is owned by the Clarke family. They’ve been creating delicious dairy products for over 25 years now. Made with milk from local herds, farmed by local families, here in the heart of Cornwall.
"We’re very proud of our relationships with other local food businesses, who put so much care and expertise into what they do. It’s thanks to them that we’re able to continue producing delicious new dishes on our seasonal menus, for pubgoers to enjoy."
