The General Tarleton brings to Yorkshire a seafood festival this September.

The festival will run for just over two weeks long and bring new and exciting dishes to the restaurant.

Owners hope the event will be a celebration of the sea and exercise why they have recently been included in the Top 50 Pubs of 2016 by the Good Food Guide.

Chefs preparing the festival menu hope it will combine the innovative and traditional.

The festival menu will include traditional dishes  such as Chef Patron John Topham’s lobster moneybags as well as new recipes.

It will  incorporate these new recipes with a range of coastal ingredients including: smoked fish, lobsters, langoustines, clams, mussels, scallops, and seabass.

The new menu includes local boat caught haddock coated in black sheep beer batter served with chips, home-made tartare sauce and fresh mushy peas.

As well as creative dishes such as Halibut with mussels, clams, sapphire and saffron broth.

Chef John Topham commented:

“The Seafood Festival provides us with an opportunity to get even more creative.

Seafood is wonderfully adaptable and works so well with other seasonal ingredients – it’s interesting to build dishes from a foundation of seafood or use these superb seafood ingredients to enhance a dish.

There is something for everyone and every pocket, and if you’re a meat eater, you are still welcome.

What is a constant is our commitment to seasonality, freshness and individuality – it’s a wonderfully creative time at The General Tarleton and one of our favourite times of the year.”

The seafood menu starts at £6.95 per starter and £13.95 for a main course. For more information about the seafood festival and to make bookings you can visit their website.
