Seafood fans won’t want to miss out on a delicious new addition to the menu at The Duke of Cumberland in Whitstable.

The coastal pub with rooms is introducing a special Midweek Mussels Menu, offering a generous serving of fresh steamed mussels in seven tantalising sauce varieties:

  • Steamed Orchard View Cider, Leek and Shallot Cream Mussels
  • Steamed Spanish-style Mussels: garlic, tomato, paprika and chilli
  • Steamed Spitfire Ale and Bacon Mussels
  • Steamed Greek style Mussels: dill, spring onion, feta cheese
  • Steamed Bombay-Curried Mussels: shallot, brandy and garam masala
  • Steamed Red Thai Curry Mussels: coriander, red chilli, lemongrass and coconut cream
  • Steamed Roquefort and Bacon Mussels: blue cheese, shallot and parsley

As with all the seafood on offer at The Duke, the mussels will be freshly caught locally, and they will be served with freshly baked sourdough bread and crisp skin-on fries.

Executive Chef Gareth Finney, who devised the menu, said: “Due to its coastal location, The Duke has built a fantastic reputation for its seafood, and we are always looking for new ways to showcase the great produce available on our doorstep. We are really excited about the seven new sauces that we have created, aimed at offering something for all tastes, from traditional flavours to bolder combinations – with a couple even including our own award-winning beer and cider!

“We are incredibly proud of this new menu, and hope that it will prove popular with customers during the summer months. What could be better than enjoying the freshest seafood in the Duke’s restaurant or courtyard garden, with a pint of Whitstable Bay Blonde Lager or a crisp glass of white wine?”

The special menu launches on Wednesday, June 19, and will be available from Monday to Thursday, priced £15.95 per portion.
