October Menu – 4th Birthday, Nanban & Beer

Now that our summer of travels are over, we’ re ready and raring to go and already prepping for our 4th birthday celebrations! Never did we think we would still be holding events, but if the people of Leeds want, we’ll still give!

To celebrate, we’ll be putting on a Japanese street food feast, serving up a number of small plates using Tim Anderson’s Nanban as our inspiration, paired with four cans of Beavertown Brewery’s finest.

Tasty grub and beer all served up in the wonderful surroundings of the Manor. What’s not to like? We’d love to know what you think!
