Meet free Mondays

Fillings include the “classic pork” with free range pork belly, hoisin sauce, peanuts, spring onion and cucumber (also available with tofu instead of pork), and fried chicken (or panko-coated squash) with miso mayo, pineapple relish, gem lettuce, sriracha hot sauce and coriander. On Mondays the menu is always entirely meat free.

Opening hours are generous: the pub is open midday to midnight seven days a week and the kitchen until 9pm Monday to Saturday, 6pm on a Sunday, giving everyone ample time to hotfoot there for a visit while the steamed buns are still hot!
