There’s a sense of excitement for the team at The Blacksmiths Arms in St Albans, which is owned by national pub operator, the Stonegate Pub Company, as they prepare to launch their mouth-watering new Spring/Summer menu this week.
“As the days get longer, our customers’ thoughts turn to lighter, fresher meals,” said Mark Fraser, Manger of the Blacksmith Arms, “so our new menu has dishes that reflect the change of season. Some of the new dishes we’ve introduced include Chicken, Bacon and Avocado Salad and Butternut Squash and Blue Cheese Risotto served with a garlic flatbread. We’ve enhanced our grill section, which is by far the most popular choice with our customers, and that now includes an 8oz Gammon Steak grilled to perfection and served with a fried egg or a 10oz Rib Eye Steak served with plum tomato, a flat mushroom, baby watercress and chips.
“Also new on the menu are a few sharing options, people sometimes want to just come into the pub and have something to nibble on as they catch up with friends over a drink or two, so we’ve introduced a really tasty sausage platter which offers a selection of sausages from our award-winning butcher which includes the Absolut™ Bloody Mary, Beef and Ale, Pork and Juniper and Caramelised Red Onion.
“In addition to the new dishes on the menu, we’ve also concentrated on ensuring all of our popular dishes are the best they can be, by working with our suppliers to source quality products time after time. I really believe that we are offering restaurant quality food in a comfortable, relaxing pub environment at real value for money prices and would encourage people to come down and pay us a visit to sample our great new menu.”
