Things are changing at both the Sebright Arms in Hackney (which previously hosted Lucky Chip) and The Miller in Bermondsey. They're about to launch Bunsmiths in both locations (following a soft launch at the Miller) featuring all manner of things in a bun (which you might have got from the name).
On the menu, there'll be lots of slow cooked meats - as they say themselves: "cooked 10 and 12 hours using specialist smoking ovens imported from the US, before being served with BBQ, mustard, smoked tomato and hot chilli sauces." Those buns include:
- Beef Brisket Bun
- 12 hour apple wood smoked Pulled Pork Bun
- Buttermilk Fried Chicken Bun
- Veg Fritter Bun with spiced sweet potato, candied and golden beetroot, coriander and chilli salsa.
For the launch, they're offering 400 free buns this weekend at the Sebright Arms on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 March. The free buns are for anyone who orders a drink between 1pm and 10:30pm on Saturday 21 and between 1pm and 10pm on Sunday 22 March (on a first come first served basis).
And they're also looking out for a standalone venue too - we'll let you know as soon as we hear more about that too.
Bunsmiths are at the Miller (96 Snowsfields, London Bridge, London SE1 3SS) and the Sebright Arms (31 – 35 Coate Street, London, E2 9AG). For more info, follow them on Twitter @Bunsmiths
