Pesto Restaurants and Beartown Brewery launch bespoke craft beer

Pesto Restaurants is excited to announce the launch of its very own pale ale – Pesto Pale, now available at selected restaurants with thanks to a special relationship with Congleton-based Beartown Brewery.

This utterly gorgeous, refreshing, hoppy craft beer is infused with limoncello and has been paired with some of Pesto’s most popular piattinis (literally ‘small dishes’). It is now available at Pesto Widnes, Cabbage Hall in Tarporley, Dibbinsdale Inn in Bromborough, and The Davenport Arms in Marton, Macclesfield.

‘It’s a special craft beer that we just know our customers are going to love. Developed with the flavours and key ingredients of our dishes in mind, it blends perfectly with the piattinis we have recommended as pairings,’ said Pesto owner Sara Edwards.

Michael Potts, Director at The Manning Brewers Group, said: ‘It’s a great feeling to have our craft beer feature in the Pesto’s of the North-West, a family of restaurants that take such pride in sourcing their produce. We brew the Pesto Pale in small batches whilst slowly infusing it with limoncello sourced carefully from the Amalfi coast of Southern Italy. The result is a refreshing pale ale that pairs superbly with Pesto’s delicious range of Piattini. To help the visitors to Pesto choose their craft beer option, we’ve also launched a craft beer pairing menu that will be available before Christmas. We’re also looking at bottling the Pesto Pale range to make it available in Pestos across the UK.’

Now available at:
Pesto at The Davenport Arms, Congleton Road, Marton, Macclesfield, SK11 9HF. Tel 01260 224 269.

New menu available now!

Spring is nearly here – and that means it’s time for a menu make-over! We can’t wait to share some of our fantastic new dishes with you. To whet your appetite here’s an idea of what could be hitting your plate very soon.

Our brand new Verdure al forno is a tasty way to help towards your five a day! We lightly season and simply roast in the oven a range of fresh colourful, seasonal vegetables.

Public - Verdure al Forno

Our Melanzane is back by popular demand. We’ve improved and refreshed this tasty dish. We build a tower of sliced aubergine, with tomato, herbs, Gran Moravia and mozzarella cheese and top it with breadcrumbs. It’s a popular (and delicious!) option for vegetarians.

Public -Melanzane Parmigiano

We’re introducing two new pizzas. The first is a hot and spicy pizza with a ‘njuja topping. Beware – it’s spicy! The second is a delicious pizza topped with tomato, mozzarella, tuna and diced red onion. We’re sure this pizza will make waves with all you fish fans.

Finally our penne all ‘arrabiata is simple but classic edition to the menu. We serve penne pasta with a spicy tomato and chilli sauce and finish with Gran Moravia cheese.
