PREVIEW: The Butcher’s Tap opens for business Fri 17th Nov

| |

Tom Kerridge has announced he will open his ‘butcher-pub’ The Butcher’s Tap in Marlow on Friday 17th November 2017.  

Combining a butchers and public house into one, it will function as a butchers and bar during the day, then from 5pm the space will become a true traditional pub.

During the day…

For the butcher, open daily until 5pm,

Tom and butcher Andy Cook are working with meat suppliers from across the country -Andy has been providing Tom’s two Michelin-starred The Hand and Flowers with produce for nearly 10 years. The fresh meat on offer will include beef from Smithfield market’s Longcroft and Old, sourced from Stoddart’s Farm in Scotland; venison and game from Hampshire Game; pork and chicken from Packington Free Range, Creedy Carver ducks and Copas Turkeys in time for Christmas.

Alongside the butcher, there will be a no-frills but tasty hot food offering. By day the deli will offer bacon rolls in the morning and a Smoked Hot Dog with pulled pork, pickled chillies and mustard mayonnaise will be available from lunchtime. Throughout the day and into the evening there will also be pork pies, scotch eggs and sausage rolls. Tom’s pork scratchings will be available from the bar along with other quality bar snacks.

Simplicity is the aim, with food served throughout the day on disposable crockery, to eat in or takeaway. 

And what about the Pub?

In the evening and all day on Sunday, the butcher closes and the pub will open fully. Three televisions will show sports for guests to enjoy over a pint. The pub will also serve one daily changing hot dish every evening.

The bar, open all day, will stock a selection of real ales,lagers and spirits, with a small but revolving choice of wines. 

We have been following the “food tasting” photos on the Butchers Tap twitter page… sausage rolls, chicken wings, hot dogs…… that’s the sort of thing to expect!
