Tom Kerridge Launches £15 set lunch deal

Tom Kerridge launches a £15 two-course set lunch to help with the cost of living

The inspiration for this menu came all the way back in the 2008 financial crash when Tom Kerridge and his wife Beth Cullen Kerridge launched a one-choice lunch menu.

Tom described how it made absolutely no money but filled the pub with noise, excitement and laughter.  He said: "It was incredibly motivating for staff and the team and it felt like the guests were having such a great time as it was such value for money."

Now in 2022, with the cost of living crisis and the rapidly increasing energy prices, tom felt that it was time to bring the set lunch back. Tom said: "You can’t turn on the TV, look at social media or read a newspaper without the grim news of the cost-of-living crisis. So, it is time to bring back the ‘too good to be true’ offer."

It will offer two courses for £15, with a third course available for an additional £7.50, and will run across three Tom Kerridge restaurants. Those being Kerridge’s Bar & Grill at The Corinthiaone Michelin-starred The Coach in Marlow and the Bull & Bear in Manchester

The same menu will run at each of the sites concurrently and will be starting on Monday 5th September.

Tom said: "The dishes will champion classic pub favourites or even school dinners, so expect cottage pie, lasagne and caramelized onion sausage with mash followed by old school desserts of spotted dick, jam roly poly and crumble and custard. 

"The aim is to get the excitement and buzz back into restaurants without guests having the fear of spending too much money. A taste of the good times at a fraction of the price."
