Raise the flag and lift those forks, it’s time to take a bow Britain as the nation gears up for British Food Fortnight (Saturday 17th September – Sunday 2nd October).

In true patriotic style, award-winning gastropub, restaurant and bar operator ETM Group, is celebrating top-notch British grub by bringing forgotten favourites back into favour and onto our plates, for a limited time only.

Showcasing the very best of home-grown food and fresh produce from their suppliers – including fresh fish from Brixham, fruit and veg from New Covent Garden Market and meat and game from Lake District Farmers and Yorkshire Game – a menu of time-honored specials and even a pop-up pie and mash shop will return at select ETM Group venues including:

Drawing on both history and nostalgia, 18th century classics such as jugged hare and mock turtle stew feature, alongside wild Suffolk venison frumenty, one of England’s oldest dishes dating back to medieval times, and the nation’s dish that slipped away – Verjuice jellied eels with pickled quail eggs and parsley vinaigrette. A pop-up pie and mash shop at The Hat & Tun will also bring a Londoner’s favourite for a lunchtime pick-me-up.

All British Food Fortnight specials will be available from 17th September – 2nd October at selected ETM sites.
