TOM KERRIDGE TO LAUNCH ‘THE BUTCHER’S TAP’
Britain’s most well-known publican and two Michelin-starred chef, Tom Kerridge, wants to bring the humble high street alive again. The Butcher’s Tap will open this November and will combine a butchers and public house into one. It will fully function as a butchers and bar during the day, then from 5pm the space will operate with a simple meat-led food offering while remaining truly a pub, with beers on tap, wines and spirits, and community nights.
The Butcher’s Tap’s food menu will of course be a celebration of meat, with plenty of British favourites such as braised faggots and hot-pots, homemade pies, scotch eggs and sausage rolls. This is no-frills but - as always - tasty eating; diners will be tucking into the roast meat of the day that’s informally served in a bun, no plates or cutlery required. Tom wants everyone to be able to eat with one hand and keep their other hand free for holding a drink while chatting to friends or battling it out during a pub quiz.
The bar will stock a highly curated selection of real ales, lagers and spirits, with a small but ever-revolving choice of wines. The drinks list won’t be extensive but it will be thoughtfully chosen.
Ultimately, The Butcher’s Tap will be a friendly, welcoming hub for the local community where people can meet for a drink and some simple, honest food.
