Popular Irish pub chain McGettigan’s has launched a new menu at its original JLT branch and has teamed up with local business The British Butcher Shop to do so.
A host of hearty new meat dishes have been added to the menu, with The British Butcher Shop exclusively providing the meat for some of them including British Butcher Shop Yorkshire pork and apple burger and the British Butcher Shop sausages and mash with caramelised red onion sausages.
Executive chef Derek Flynn, who curated the new menu, said: “The McGettigan’s food menu is a core part of the brand’s identity and the reason so many customers visit us over and over again. We’ve decided that now is a great time to refresh and add some new core staples that we’re sure will soon become favourites to so many. Additionally, we’ve sourced exclusively from the local British Butcher Shop for some of these dishes which also enables us to support small local businesses and continue to create great pub classics”
McGettigan’s will be hoping the new menu is a roaring success, particularly with owner Dennis McGettigan recently launching a bid to bring Barcelona’s footballing superstar Lionel Messi to Dubai.
The sports bar sponsors Dubai Irish FC and McGettigan has made an enquiry into the availability of Argentinian legend Messi following reports he wishes to leave the club, and has offered the six-time Balon d'Or winner "as many chicken wings and roast dinners as he can handle".
However, with Barcelona holding out for 700 million euros, or approximately 3 billion dirhams, he’ll need to sell an awful lot of bangers and mash to make it a reality.
