The Feast at Red’s True Barbecue

Red's True BBQ feast

Famed for its piles upon piles of meat, The Feast is a platter that brings together 14 of the menu’s best bits. It’s designed for two or more, so don’t think you’re finishing this off single-handedly. We’re talking sticky chicken, jalapeño sausage and baby back ribs, plus oodles of sides. From Texan toast to giant onion rings and meaty pit beans, you’ve plenty to get your lips around. They also give you a dollop of tangy slaw and house salad to break it up a bit.

Birthday Extravaganza at Kaspa’s

To gorge on a medley of sweet treats all in one go, head to Kaspa’s and get your mitts on their Birthday Extravaganza – it’s the ultimate way to indulge if you have a sweet tooth. You start with a bed of waffles before piling on 12 scoops of gelato. But which flavours will you go for? They do everything from strawberry cheesecake to bubblegum. Whipped cream fills the gaps, along with a scattering of wafers, before it’s topped with syrup and sprinkles.

The Kraken at The Bearded Sailor

The Kraken at The Bearded Sailor boasts a mammoth 16-ounce piece of battered haddock as its centrepiece, with shedloads of trimmings on the side. We’re talking eight hefty fish goujons, coated in their oh-so-crispy batter, a large pile of proper chip-shop chips and a choice of peas, curry, gravy or if you’re up for experimenting, their cheddar cheese sauce. The whole lot is designed to share but if you reckon you can handle it, go forth.
