If you’ve not tried the daily specials at Purecraft Bar and Kitchen you’re missing out. Big time.
Found just off Victoria Square, Purecraft Bar and Kitchen offers restaurant quality food in a relaxed bar environment. The tap selection is as fine as the grub, and the place runs like a well oiled machine. Which coincidentally also describes my husband.
I’ve been a longstanding fan of this place; the food available is varied and of much higher quality than the pricing suggests. This is especially true of the daily and weekly specials, which I’ve been (over) indulging in this month.
Most recently I was left wowed by a Cornish lamb dish. Considering the brilliance of the meat, tender and blushing pink, and a fondant potato that left me weak at the knees, as far as specials go this was an absolute bargain. It even came with a half pint of UBU, leaving me feeling like I’d pulled off a heist for getting such a stunning dish and something to slurp for a tenner.
The selection of craft ales available at the bar is a big draw, with plenty of choice. I’ve become quite fond the on the Bunny Hop; a cheeky little golden ale that’s ideal for Sunday sessions.
The regular menu is full of pub grub classics with the volume turned up, including a pretty stonking fish and chips with minted mushy peas. The small plates include a ridiculous scotch egg that’s all kinds of brilliant, and there’s even some bar snacks in the shape of pork crackling. Which go every well with a pint. Winner winner.
I’ve eaten at Purecraft Bar and Kitchen more times than I can count, and I haven’t yet had a bad meal yet. If you’re just looking for an after work bar snack or quality weekend meal, this place is the business.
