James Ratcliffe and NIna Matsunaga, the owners of the Black Bull, Sedbergh, have created a festival style space in the historic pub’s beer garden.
The Stables outdoor bar will be serving a selection of drinks to socially distanced tables ‘bierkeller style’ in the spacious Meadow, which provides 30 tables located under pergolas, perfect for keeping diners snug and dry while they enjoy a drink, some food and a well-deserved catch-up.
There’s a choice of food on offer, including handmade sourdough pizzas, cooked in their giant wood-fired Gozney pizza oven, seafood dishes cooked over coals on their bespoke blacksmith made BBQ and griddle, including fresh langoustine with chimichurri, Lake District lobster with garlic butter, alongside spit-roasted dishes, including slow-cooked Howgill beef brisket, Height of Winder Farm leg of lamb, served with homemade bread and grilled seasonal vegetables.
A variety of vegetarian dishes will be on offer too including cauldron cooked lentil and chickpea curry, wild garlic and rosemary woodfire cooked wedges. Tables are limited and will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
James and Anita, co-owners of the Black Bull, commented:
”We’ve worked hard to support our local community and our staff throughout this pandemic and they, in turn, have wholeheartedly supported us, helping us to get through this. There’s no doubt that it’s been a struggle for hospitality as a whole, but fingers crossed we are now starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We’re looking forward to reopening our outside spaces the Stables Bar, and The Meadow our dining space, from 15th April, and out guest rooms and restaurant from the 19th May, above all we are looking forward to being able to welcoming guests once more.”
