A Stanley pub is taking Christmas to a whole new level this year by creating the ultimate festive side dish…move over pigs in blankets, cows in quilts have arrived!

The Stanley Ferry Hungry Horse pub on Ferry Lane has launched a mouth-wateringly meaty accompaniment to a traditional roast – beef burgers wrapped in bacon.

The pub introduced the seasonal sliders to make their Christmas menu stand out from the crowd with a new twist on a festive favourite. Cows in quilts are the perfect addition to any meal, from traditional turkey with all the trimmings to a tasty Christmas pie.

Caroline Harvey, general manager at the Stanley Ferry, said: “Christmas is always a magical time of year, but here in Stanley we wanted to take this year’s celebrations to a whole new level by turning a Christmas dinner staple on its head.

“Pigs in blankets have long been the star of many a Christmas dinner plate, and we thought it was time we gave the spotlight to a new seasonal side dish, by creating something which pays homage to a true pub classic – the beef burger.

“In Christmas 2017, we added a seasonal sparkle to our guests’ festive plates with the UK’s first glitter gravy, and we’d love this year’s food innovation to become a Christmas classic of the future!”

Cows in quilts are available now at the Stanley Ferry while stocks last.
