That’s right folks, we’re biting the bullet, taking the plunge and diving off the deep end as we open the doors to the first, permanent, Hang Fire restaurant Wednesday, 2nd March 2016.
The new restaurant called ‘Hang Fire Southern Kitchen‘ will be situated in a 215 year old Pump House on Barry Waterfront, Vale of Glamorgan. The restaurant will join 15 high-spec live/work apartments plus a large, 24hr gym and an independent coffee shop in the grade II listed building, which has recently been converted as part of the multi-million-pound regeneration of the Waterfront.
The informal restaurant, which will seat 70-80, will be over two floors with the main dining room and craft beer bar upstairs and a deep-south-inspired cocktail bar downstairs which will also be available for party hire.
Barbecue will of course be a key feature in the restaurant but we’ll also recreate our US road trip on the menu. Showcasing the best cuisine from New Orleans to Kansas City and Texas to Tennessee, with a Welsh twist, using recipes from our upcoming cook book. We’ll be cooking on natural fuel such as sustainable wood and charcoal and, as always, using as much local produce as possible. The restaurant will be half reservations and half walk in, so we should get to feed everyone that comes to see us.
Hang Fire Southern Kitchen will be open Wednesday to Sunday, 11am – 11pm from lunch to dinner and building up to offering take away too. We’re hoping to open 2nd March and we should have an online booking system up in February, though as mentioned, we’ll always make room for ‘walk ins’ even if the reserved tables are booked out.
We’re ridiculously excited, we hope you are too. Just think, no more horrendous queues for our barbecue, however we can’t promise that we won’t sell out of ribs and burnt ends from time to time!
See you in Barrybados!
