Enjoy great quality, good value food at Uncle Sam’s
Uncle Sam’s Restaurant and Grill opened three weeks ago.
KICK-back, relax and enjoy some delicious food at a new restaurant which has opened in Stamford.
Uncle Sam’s Restaurant and Grill in Castle Street is a new venture set up by lifelong friends Mark Marrison and Kyros Michael and managed by Richard Hollingdale.
The restaurant opened three weeks ago and business is booming.
Specialising in fresh, home-made, locally-sourced food, Uncle Sam’s is proving to be a big hit with the locals – particularly on Friday and Saturday nights.
“We want Uncle Sam’s to be a place for the whole family to enjoy,” said manager, Richard.
“Mark and I have worked on and off in the catering industry for nearly 20 years, but this is the first time we have run a restaurant together.
“It is going very well so far, although we are working really long hours and are incredibly busy.”
Uncle Sam’s specialises in steaks, ribs and burgers and all the meat comes from local farms or butchers.
Richard said: “All our steaks are 100 per cent prime British beef, locally sourced whenever possible.
“Hand cut, then chargrilled to the customers’ liking, each comes served with a choice of one of Uncle Sam’s speciality sauces and accompanied with garden peas, coleslaw and a choice of chips, cheesy cheddar mash or baked potato.
“We believe in serving good quality food, in a relaxed and friendly environment and offering customers great value for money.”
As part of this ethos, from this week Uncle Sam’s is also offering customers, who visit the restaurant on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings, a free bottle of wine when they buy two main meals.
The restaurant’s head chef is Stamford-born Vince Rollins, assisted by two additional commis chefs, with Mark and Richard helping out wherever needed.
“We do a bit of everything,” said Richard. “From working front of house to chopping veg in the kitchen, we do whatever is required of us. It certainly never gets boring.”
