Pig & Whistle unveils new Market Menu

21st Sep

Now over a year into its mission of transforming East Yorkshire’s dining scene, the Pig & Whistle in Beverley proudly presents a brand new offering. The stylish Market Menu has been expertly crafted around high quality ingredients and mouth-watering dishes, giving patrons the opportunity to try something new or indulge in their personal favourites.
To start off, you can choose from classics such as Staal’s smoked salmon, buffalo mozzarella salad and ham hock terrine, preparing the palate for a delectable main course. This takes the form of the pint-sized bistro’s signature three meat and two cheese sharing board, which allows total customisation through an ever-changing assortment from around the globe. If you have room for something sweet, dessert of the day may be creamy panna cotta, sumptuous cakes and brownies, or something entirely different. All of this is washed down with a glass of prosecco to give it a true sense of occasion that can be enjoyed any day you desire.
Available for lunch Tuesday to Saturday and in the evenings Tuesday to Thursday, the Market Menu is priced at just £16 for two courses and £20 for a three-course meal, making it filling and affordable in equal measure.
Owner James Allcock is dedicated to sourcing the most exciting flavours from near and far, and this season he’s putting extra focus on working with multiple local suppliers to create a first-rate coffee and dessert experience. This includes collaborating with James Wilkins of The Blending Room, who has recently achieved his Q Arabica Grader license from the Coffee Quality Institute. The result is that The Pig & Whistle not only has the best roast around, but the team also grinds it to order, guaranteeing the perfect cup of coffee.
James says: “Since opening, we’ve been a hotspot for casual visitors looking to unwind and watch the world go by. By enhancing our coffee and dessert menu, we’re the ideal place for everything from a catch-up with friends, to a business meeting to impress your clients.”
Other local suppliers include White Rabbit with their chocolate honeycomb treats, Hello Baker Girl’s cakes and brownies, and delightful bite-sized creations by MacaronMan. Even the milk served with the coffee is from East Yorkshire – Cherry View Milk is produced from a small herd of happy, free range cows that graze on lush pastures of grass and clover in Cherry Burton, just four miles from the restaurant.
“We’re open Tuesday to Sunday for all types of visits,” says James. “It could be a celebratory event that’s planned in advance, a satisfying lunch during a day of shopping, a few nibbles and a refreshing drink at our bar, or even just a quick dessert that you know you deserve. Whatever people are in the mood for, we’re ready to welcome them through our doors.”
“Our passion is exceptional food, and our mission is exemplary customer service,” he adds. “We have a huge range of dishes and snacks available, many of which are vegetarian and the entire menu can also accommodate those who want a gluten free experience. From small plates to three-course meals, we promise that you won’t leave feeling hungry.”
And then of course there’s the drinks menu. With more than 40 wines selected for their quality and variety sitting alongside a range of champagne, sherry, port and dessert wine, the Pig & Whistle prides itself on an unrivalled selection. These cater for all budgets too, from £3.50 a glass and £16 a bottle, to superb vintages that are a real treat for the taste buds, and even a skinny prosecco made from the best grapes and significantly reduced sugar.
You can find the Pig & Whistle at 5 Sow Hill Road, just around the corner from the bus station and a 10-minute walk from the train station. Situated a stone’s throw from the beautiful St Mary’s Church and the bustling Saturday Market, the welcoming bistro superbly complements Beverley’s blend of historic charm and modern living.
