WIN­TER is com­ing... and the good news is it’s bring­ing a feast of com­fort food with it.

The Pot­ting Shed Bar & Gar­dens in South­port is launch­ing its new win­ter menu, ready to fight off freez­ing tem­per­a­tures with a hearty line-up in­clud­ing gourmet pies, cur­ries, ke­babs and soups.

The Lord Street bar’s new menu has been cre­ated by Pot­ting Shed group ex­ec­u­tive chef Jor­dan Aspinall who is keen to put the em­pha­sis on warm­ing dishes for the sea­son.

He said: “What we’ve gone for is feelgood food, things that cus­tomers will re­ally look for­ward to get­ting in­doors out of the cold and tuck­ing in to.

“Pies are a big fea­ture, so we’ve got our own ver­sions of the all-time favourites – steak and ale, and chicken and mush­room – and we’ve cre­ated a veg­e­tar­ian one with but­ter­nut squash, mixed beans and cheese which is de­li­cious.

“Cus­tomers love our piz­zas so we’ve added a Win­ter Pizza topped with ba­con, Brie and cran­berry, and we’ve tried to stay on trend as well with some in­gre­di­ents which are re­ally pop­u­lar at the mo­ment, so we’ve got our turmeric and co­conut curry, and hal­loumi or truf­fle and Parme­san fries.

“Be­cause so many peo­ple have switched to a ve­gan diet we’ve got ve­gan dishes on their too in­clud­ing a curry and chilli, and we have gluten-free burger buns and pizza bases for cus­tomers who want a GF op­tion.”

Jor­dan said his per­sonal favourite new dish comes from the “light bites” sec­tion – the French onion soup.

Pot­ting Shed desserts have also warmed up for win­ter, with light sum­mery op­tions mak­ing way for an in­dul­gent warm pecan tart, ap­ple crum­ble, sticky tof­fee pud­ding and cho­co­late fudge cake.

“We like to think that calo­ries don’t count in win­ter,” said Jor­dan. “We’re all about the big jumpers!”
