If there's one type of food we've had request after request for over the years, it's Fish and Chips. Well this is your lucky year, because making their Festival debut, Seawise will be bringing the very best of English Seafood cuisine. From gourmet fish and chips to grilled seafood platters, you are promised one of the tastiest and most delicious seafood offerings available. A family run business for over 30 years, they get their fresh seafood delivered daily from London's famous Billingsgate Fish Market.
If you know St Albans pubs, you'll know that the Portland Arms is renowned for its excellent Sunday roasts. Taking those flavours and transforming them into the optimum Festival meal, Caz and the team will be serving mouthwatering Yorkshire Pudding Wraps. Based in the food servery in the main hall, you won't even have to travel far from the bar to find them!
Kell's Kitchen began as a restaurant in Camden in 2011 and became an award-winning eatery known for great food and customer service. In 2018 the team took the bold decision to close their restaurant and instead embark on an incredible journey to share their culinary delights more widely by hitting the road. Taking classic street food and elevating it to a higher level of extra deliciousness, they'll be serving scrumptious traditional German hotdogs, loaded nachos, and more.
The Crusty Pie Co.
Firm festival favourites for many years, we're delighted to welcome back The Crusty Pie Company. Travelling all the way from West Yorkshire, they'll be offering their famous pies, pasties, scratchings and other snacks. From delicious traditional flavours like the original pork pie, meat and potato or steak and ale, to more adventurous offerings like sweet chilli, wild boar or chicken Balti, you won't be able to resist.
No.2 Pound Street
Hailing from the picturesque market town of Wendover in the heart of the Buckinghamshire Chilterns, No.2 Pound Street is an innovative wine shop and deli counter. They celebrate award winning artisan producers of meats, cheese and smoked salmon from across Great Britain, and they are joining us at St Albans Beer & Cider Festival again to bring you a fine selection of luxurious snacks. Plus, if you love cheese, don't miss No.2 Pound Street's special cheese and beer matching event on Saturday afternoon!
Bringing a taste of the Mediterranean to St Albans, Kotinos are joining us for the first time with their unique selection of Greek and Turkish products. From mixed and marinated olives to savoury nuts, there will be an irresistible range of snacks to accompany your beer or cider. And for the sweeter tooths, there'll be Baklava made with the finest cashew, pistachio, walnut, and almond, as well as Turkish delight in a variety of flavours.
Just Crisps are not just any old crisps. They are made using the finest potatoes and award-winning cold-pressed rapeseed oil: two homegrown ingredients working in perfect harmony to create the ultimate British crisp. The Froggatt family has farmed in Staffordshire for four generations, caring for the land through sustainable farming for 100 years, and - back by popular demand - they are bringing a selection of their premium snacks to the Festival again this year.
