Chef Tom Kerridge will be opening his new restaurant, The Bull & Bear, in Stock Exchange Hotel on Norfolk Street on Friday 15th November.
The Grade II listed building, which is a striking example of Edwardian architecture from the early 20th Century, has been lovingly restored and transformed into the Stock Exchange Hotel.
Located within the grand domed room which was previously the trading floor of the Stock Exchange, Tom’s first Manchester outpost will be an approachable and social space, blurring the lines between elegance and informality, with a menu reflecting Tom’s signature style of refined British classics.
Tom and his Executive Chef Dan Scott have created a menu that is influenced by Tom’s pub in Marlow; The Coach. The menu will be divided into three stages, ‘First’, ‘Second’ and ‘Third’, with the team recommending four to five plates per person, allowing diners to experience a wider selection of the menu.
The Bull & Bear will celebrate the style of cooking that Tom is renowned for – refined British comfort food and classics using incredible produce, in an environment that is approachable yet luxurious.
Some signature favourites from The Coach will be making an appearance such as Mushroom “Risotto” Claude Bosi, The Coach Burger with Smoked Brisket and Dill Pickle and Chicken Kiev with Cauliflower Cheese.
The menu will also include dishes such as:
Rotisserie Beetroot Salad with Feta and Mint
Smoked Chicken and Ham Hock Terrine with Piccalilli
Duck Liver Parfait with Plum Chutney
Fish Fritter of the Day with Pease Pudding and Tartare Sauce
Crispy Pig’s Head with Celeriac Rémoulade and Spiced Date Sauce
Venison Chilli with Toasted Rice Cream, Red Wine and Chocolate
Whisky and Rye Pudding
Hot Chocolate Tart with Hazelnut Ice Cream
The Coach Profiteroles with Soured Vanilla Cream
Tom has been working closely with his Bar Manager at The Hand & Flowers in Marlow, Antony Peart, to design a drinks menu of cocktails that celebrates British distilleries, alongside a selection of local beers and non-alcoholic options. As well as celebrating Manchester’s local brewing scene, there will be beer from Rebellion, a Marlow-based brewery.
In addition to The Bull & Bear restaurant, Tom and his team will also be overseeing The Bank, offering private dining experiences for up to 14 people, and The Vault, catering for private events for up to 120 people.
The Bank has been reinvented to provide an intimate setting for private dining moments for up to 14, and comes complete with its own wine cellar which guests can enjoy as part of an overall experience. “The Bank” will also offer culinary masterclasses with Tom Kerridge’s team.
The Vault, hidden on the lower ground floor, has been restored to offer a unique, welcoming space for up to 120, with menus designed and served by Tom’s team.
