The new landlady of a popular pub in Carlton is preparing to fling open its kitchen and serve up a selection of delicious gourmet burgers to customers.
Sophie Shepherd, who became the new landlady at the Inn For A Penny pub on Burton Road, has teamed up with Mapperley-based food business Nissi to launch the new burger menu at the venue, which launches this Wednesday (January 22).
The new offering is sure to please sports fans who flock to the pub each week to watch their favourite teams on the venue’s many screens.
Sophie told Gedling Eye: “I’m really excited about the launch. The kitchen here has not been open for a while so it’s really great to be able to offer food again.
“We have a big sports crowd come to the pub to watch Forest and other teams and we think our new gourmet burger menu will realy appeal to them.”
Nissi’s selection of gourmet burgers contain all homemade ingredients, with everything in the burger being made from scratch.
The gourmet burgers ‘with a twist’ include ‘The Hotty’, which includes, jalapenos, peppers and mushrooms cooked in a rich hot sauce. ‘The Italian’ is a Chicken thigh smothered in green pesto topped with mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes.
Vegans can tuck into the Popeye Pumpkin, which is a pumpkin and spinich burger topped with chilli jam and crispy onions or the Veggie Flower , made from Southern-fried cauliflower topped with jalapeños and sweet chilli sauce.
Kids are also catered for with a children’s burger menu also being introduced.
The new Nissi menu is available from Wednesday to Sunday and is served from 12pm until late.
The burger offer is just one of many plans Sophie has up her sleeve for the pub over the coming months. She also plans to introduce a food menu for senior citizens in the next few weeks and also a number of themed-nights which are sure to get the punters through the door.
She said: “I’m really excited to be taking over at The Penny. I’ve got so many ideas about what we can do. It’s going to be brilliant.”
