Taste Nottingham 2016- Beer and Main Course at Purecraft

Up until recently we'd not noticed Purecraft Nottingham on our radar. Having rarely ventured into the city of late there have been a number of restaurants and bars that have slipped past us. Purecraft is housed in what used to be Dome on St Peters Gate and is a collaboration between Paul Halsey of Purity Brewing Co, Andreas Antona a Michelin Starred Chef and Martin Hilton, former direct of Mitchells and Butler. With such a wealth of talent behind the venture Nottingham drinkers and diners should be in for a treat.

As part of an event to promote Taste Nottingham we were welcomed into Purecraft for a Main Course of Beer Brined Pork Belly, Potato Purée, Black Pudding & Apple

The Pork Belly was beautifully cooked and broke away easily as you slide your knife through. I worked well with the crumbled black pudding and fine potato puree to make a very nice main course. Very simple yet we know many people who would love such a classic dish.. At £12 on the menu we also believe it represents good value compared to many other restaurants. 

Our Pork Belly was paired with a glass of Purity Gold Beer which would be an excellent drink to many a real ale lover. Sadly for me I'm not an IPA or hoppy beer lover and they tend to leave a soapy taste in my mouth which masks any significant food flavours and I struggle to pick out other significant notes, Mark really loved his however and thought it was a great beer he'd happily drink more of.

For the drinker in us we're certainly very interested in Purecraft's extensive selection of Beers and very nice food menu. They're gone a level above with a night for food and beer pairing on June 30th (Which we'd have ordered tickets for if we didn't have some other significant plans). With a 6 course menu paired with beer we're pretty sure for £30 you'll come away very happy having tasted plenty.
