We cook quality ingredients with fire and smoke to produce tasty dishes with a distinctly British feel. Think of us as halfway between a great British summer barbecue and a smokey Texan food truck.
‘Barbecue’ means a lot of different things to different people. To us, it is the simple process of cooking over charcoal and wood, turning meat and vegetables into charred, smokey delights.
But it’s not just about the food, we love the social, informal experience of getting together around fire to share food and good times.
Oh....and as science geeks, we love to learn why and how barbecue creates such distinct flavours and textures. We hope to share this with all those who enjoy our food.
With a background in sustainability and conservation, sourcing is big deal for us. We always aim to use ethically sourced, British produce from suppliers we trust. We look forward to collaborating with individuals and businesses who are equally mindful of these values.
Ultimately, we hope to have a permanent location where people can enjoy our food with great drinks in a relaxed space. We want to create an environment that allows people to be immersed in the magic of barbecue, whilst sharing great times with friends.
Our menu aims to showcase British ingredients, prepared with care, over time to produce tasty, balanced dishes. We are enthusiastic cooks rather than chefs so our menu aims to let the ingredients and the smoke do most of the talking.
Having spent a summer travelling the US in the name of ‘research’, we developed a real taste for authentic American barbecue. Our menu looks to embrace their traditional cooking techniques and combine them with a more varied set of ingredients to create a more British barbecue menu.
We are very excited to announce that we will be firing up a new residency from the 13th July 2017 at the Institute of Light, in London Fields. It's just a stone's throw away from London Fields and the station, with a nice bar and ample outside seating. We'll be cooking up a more grown-up barbecue menu with plated dishes that are great for sharing/tasting. The kitchen will be open Wed-Fri 6-10.30pm, Sat 1-10.30pm & Sun 1- 9.30pm.
You can still find us at the Howling Hops Brewery in Hackney Wick serving up our barbecued delights 7 days a week, to complement the great range of craft beers on offer. Kitchen opening times are Mon-Thurs 6-10pm, Fri 12-3pm & 6-10pm, Sat 1-10pm, Sun 1-9pm. For details on the brewery and bar opening times, visit howlinghops.co.uk
