Managed pub and bar operator TCG is launching summer menus for its Henry’s Café Bar brand later this month, with a number of new dishes based on seasonal produce, lighter ingredients such as chicken and seafood, and on-trend items including feta and haloumi cheese, quinoa and sweet potato.
The new menus offer the quality and diversity that have been key to the enduring appeal of Henry’s Café Bars. Established favourites such as fish & chips, burgers and club sandwiches are complemented by new flavours, such as the four new salads, including Salmon Nicoise and Quinoa with sweet potato and avocado, and main courses such as Cod with feta cheese and sundried tomato and Bauletti – filled pasta parcels.
Sharing platters have always been a Henry’s best-seller, appealing to the shoppers and after-work drinkers who form a large part of the brand’s customer base. The new menu offers five sharing boards, including a meat mezze based on harissa-marinated lamb and chicken skewers, and an antipasto mezze with chargrilled vegetables, feta cheese and dips.
Finally, the dessert offer has been refreshed to offer lighter, summery flavours in dishes such as Mango & Passion Fruit Mess and Lemon Pie Cheesecake.
TCG chief operating officer Nigel Wright said, “The continuing success of the Henry’s Café Bar brand is due in large part to its food offer. We refresh it regularly to make sure it meets the demands of the more aspirational customers who frequent the sites and reflects the latest food trends in the casual dining sector, while also keeping our perennial favourites.
“We believe we’ve achieved the right balance with the new menu and are confident it will help to drive food sales across our Henry’s sites over the summer months.”
The new menu is the result of an extensive development process by TCG that included a review of consumer trends, competitor analysis and a tasting for general managers at all Henry’s Café Bars. There are five Henry’s sites at: Covent Garden, Piccadilly and West India Quay in London; Bromley and Cardiff.
