Binks Yard, Nottingham’s most hotly anticipated new bar and grill, has revealed the grilled, smoked, and wood-fired menu that chef patron and his team of chefs will be serving when the venue opens this summer.
Bringing together the best of casual drinking and dining to create a cool, cosy, canal-side hospitality venue, the new space will feature an outside plaza and bandstand, showcasing live music throughout the year. It will also have an outside kiosk for on-the-go hot and cold drinks.
The menu features wood-fired sourdough pizzas boasting bold flavours such as ‘nduja, Stichelton blue cheese, candied walnuts, bresaola and truffle paste. Meanwhile dishes from its smoky charcoal grill include chicken shawarma, tandoori tempeh and spatchcock chicken. Other star dishes include black bream, moules marinière, a tempting selection of pinchos and tacos, and a breakfast menu served from 9.00am until 11.30am each day.
Chef patron Laurence Henry said: “We’ve really put our hearts and souls into this menu to create something unique. The dishes are honest and bold, and with the help of our wood-fired oven and charcoal grill, the cooking methods really speak for themselves. We’ve got comforting classics like our Henry Binks full English breakfast, double cheeseburger, and sourdough pizzas, which feature quality ingredients cooked to perfection. However, some of our dishes showcase a twist on the traditional, like our ‘morcilla’ black pudding and quail egg pinchos and our spatchcock chicken marinated in tagine spices.”
Named after local Victorian beer retailer Henry Binks, who operated in Nottingham in the late 19th century, the bar and grill occupies the lower ground floor of the first building at The Island Quarter, one of the UK’s biggest ever regeneration projects.
