As a treat for rugby fans, The Rib Room at Jumeirah Carlton Tower has revealed an exclusive menu featuring dishes sourced from some of the nations participating in the Rugby World Cup paired with local beers. Famed for over fifty years as a bastion of British cuisine, Head Chef Ian Rudge has sourced some of the finest ingredients from around the rugby playing world to create a truly international Rugby World Cup inspired menu paired with local beers to be enjoyed throughout the tournament. Diners are encouraged to book early as with a twist of fate, each nation’s dish will be removed from the menu as their team is eliminated from the tournament. The host nation’s menu will offer the quintessentially English combination of The Rib Room’s legendary roast rib of beef with Yorkshire pudding matched with beer from local Greenwich-based craft brewery Meantime. Neighbours from north of the border will be offered Glasgow-brewed Innis & Gunn to enjoy with Aberdeen Angus rib eye steak and Dunsyre blue cheese, while the Welsh Dragons will offer a thirst-quenching Celt House Lager alongside delicious Welsh lamb cutlets with leek and Caerphilly cheddar gratin.
Those who wish to see Ireland repeat their RBS Six Nations success will relish a hearty Irish sirloin steak, black pudding and colcannon washed down with their beloved Guinness whilst foes from across The Channel will savour the classic French steak au poivre with pommes frites served alongside the famous Kronenbourg.
Catering for visitors from the southern hemisphere, Argentina supporters will be welcomed with authentic culinary combinations of Quilmes, with a succulent Lomo fillet steak with chimichurri sauce. The Antipodeans hailing from Australia will be tempted by a pint of Cooper’s Pale Ale paired with an exquisite Australian surf and turf dish including wagyu beef. The revered All Black followers will sip Monteith’s Bohemian pilsner coupled with New Zealand green lip mussels cooked in New Zealand chardonnay, garlic and cream.
No matter which nation you support, The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant at Jumeirah Carlton Tower has created a fantastic opportunity for all rugby fans to indulge in both fine food and world-class sport in one of London’s finest hotels.
