New Artisan Menu – Starting 5th July 2012

All New Artisan Menu at The Bakers Arms, Blaby – Take a look at our latest menu inspiration…

 This Menu is devised to bring the talents of the local community together with food.

The dishes are all cooked and prepared here at the Bakers Arms and we hope there is something for everyone

Wherever possible, every ingredient for every dish is produced or supplied by a person who lives local to the pub. Whether it’s local honey from a local bee-keeper, freshly baked bread from a local baker or meat from a local farmer, your meal will be produced from everything local.

Our head chef, Mr Chris Reid, has a wealth of culinary experience from all over the world gained from his time spent working on cruise ships. Now back at home in Leicestershire he has a passion for creating good food in our traditional British pub.

We hope you enjoy your meal and the experience of eating everything British and ‘local’ at your local.
