Street Food Chef has gone to the dogs… the new-look Dog & Partridge in Trippet Lane, to be exact.

The award-winning Mexican food specialists – who already have a burrito bar in Pinstone Street and a restaurant in Arundel Street – launched their latest outlet last week.

Dog landlord Conor Smith, who previously ran the Beehive and the Hammer & Pincers, was a regular customer of Street Food Chef. He invited owners Richard and Abi Golland to take over the kitchen as an alternative to standard pub grub.

The menu features burritos, tacos, quesadillas and nachos from £2. A Mexican Evening is being planned from 5pm on April 26 to celebrate the launch.

Casino’s knockout fight

Footballer turned boxer Curtis Woodhouse is squaring up against former British champion Liam Cameron on Sunday afternoon, in an all-action fight... in the kitchen.

The Hell’s Kitchen fundraiser takes place at G Casino in Duchess Road, when the two sporting heroes will slog it out over the stoves, cooking a three-course dinner for onlookers in partnership with local foodies. Tickets £5; proceeds to St Luke’s Hospice.

Taste of the Caribbean

Bishop’S coffee house & bistro is turning up the heat with a regular Friday Caribbean night. The changing menu offers main courses for £10, with starters and desserts at a fiver. Expect traditional favourites including salted cod fishcake, chickpea or mutton curry, chicken in Caribbean sauce and ginger cake. Bring your own wine, no corkage.

Let’s drink to that

Wetherspoons pubs are running another beer festival this month, with up to 50 real ales on offer from across the world. The festival runs until April 21; beers are all £2.15 a pint and tasting notes available.

The company has also added filter coffee to its range of hot drinks. While others are turning to espresso machines, Wetherspoons pubs have invested in new equipment which they claim produces a “cleaner taste than americano.”
