The British sausage is as synonymous to the British plate as fish and chips or roast beef. What’s so special about the banger though is the differing flavours that make it unique to its area of origin.

Stonegate Pub Company’s Classic Inns estate is to celebrate the culinary delight by hosting a two month sausage festival throughout February and March.

Each of the forty-six traditional pubs will be offering a choice of six different sausage flavours, from classic Cumberland to ones certain to divide opinion, Pork and Marmite! Others on the menu include Scotch Steak and Bombardier Beer; Pork, Westons Scrumpy Cider and Bramley apple; Pork and Red Indian Chilli; and Pork and Lincolnshire Poacher.

Customers can opt to customise their favourite sausage selecting from creamy, mustard or cheesy flavoured mashed potato and topped with red wine, ale, crispy onion or red onion gravy. Those simply not able to decide can select the sausage board – two flavours enjoyed with ciabatta and a selection of sauces.

Sam Maynard, Marketing Manager for Classic Inns Marketing said, “Sausage and mash is such a classic British favourite and yet there are so many variations not often explored on pub menus. We wanted to celebrate the humble banger by mixing it up with all sorts of wonderful flavours such as ale and cider. Enjoyed with cider, cask beer or red wine, it is simply delicious.”
