By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 17 May 2017
An eagerly-awaited Beverley bistro and charcuterie will open on June 1, when it promises to bring a new dining style to the area.
From oysters to sharing boards and local ales to Spanish sherries, the venue is getting ready to serve up a feast of flavours to diners.
Owner James Allcock says tables are already booking quickly for The Pig & Whistle, his pint-sized neighbourhood bistro and charcuterie in Sow Hill.
Now, he is promising to bring “a world of flavours" on small plates to diners at his stylish new restaurant.
He says the small plates format is popular in London, where he trained under celebrated chefs Gordon Ramsay and Marcus Wareing.
“Our focus is cured meats and a large variety of cheeses," he says.
“Add to this cold-smoked salmon, fresh oysters, bar bites and sharing boards, and you have yourself a world of flavours."
The young chef, who helped 1884 Dock Street Kitchen become one of Hull's most prestigious restaurants, says the neighbourhood bistro and charcuterie will be a warm and welcoming place.
A former Visit England Gold winner at Hull's 1884, which was also a Remarkable Restaurant of the Year at the REYTAs, Mr Allcock says: “It doesn't matter where you live; everyone appreciates good food and wants new experiences on their doorstep.
“The Pig & Whistle is relaxed and friendly, simultaneously offering a few surprises and a unique atmosphere," he said.
“In the process we've created eight local jobs. This not only helps the employment market, but also provides these people with the opportunity to see how a professional restaurant runs from the very start."
Open seven days a week, the stylish new restaurant will accommodate 25 covers, split between bookings and walk-ins.
Mr Allcock says: “We present culinary delights from places as diverse as Lindisfarne and Saint-Marcellin.
“Pay us a visit and we'll take your palate on a journey around the British Isles and Europe."
