Our general manager chef, Dale Harris, has been working with a butcher and a brewer to create a unique beer sausage for our menu.
Called the Priory Farm Westerham Ale Sausage, it is a celebration of the finest ingredients from Priory Farm Shop butchers in Nutfield and an award-winning bitter from Westerham Brewery.
After months of recipe development and taste tests, Dale is now proudly serving the sausage with colcannon potatoes, petits pois and red onion gravy.
"I am very excited to be able to offer our customers an outstanding product that is the result of a partnership between local quality producers, and delighted to be working with Priory Farm to produce what is a great tasting sausage," says Dale. "We make it our mission to source locally wherever possible and this sausage is a marriage of three counties – ingredients from Sussex and Kent and made in Surrey."
The banger is handmade by Priory Farm butcher Andy MacNeill and his team using local free-range Sussex pork shoulder meat which has been marinated in Westerham Brewery’s top selling beer, British Bulldog - a rich full bodied best bitter made from 100% Kent hops.
"Beer does amazing things to pork meat, making it a softer eat, so the combination has created an exceptional sausage that tastes great on its own, or perhaps with a pint of British Bulldog," says butcher Andy.
Our 19th century pub stocks a wide selection of award-winning ales from nearby Westerham Brewery, including British Bulldog, but this is the first time we have served beer in a sausage rather than a glass. It is now available on our menu and from the butchery counter in Priory Farm Shop, open seven days a week.
