As part of British Sausage Week (October 31st – November 6th), Hampshire gastro pub, The Sun Inn, in Dummer, is pledging cash with its bangers to raise funds for Basingstoke Foodbank.

The newly crowned Bib Gourmand pub restaurant (in the 2017 Michelin Guide) and 2 AA Rosette eaterie is donating 50% of profits from two special sausage dishes, created exclusively for the event, throughout the whole of November.

“This is a fantastic initiative by the team at The Sun,” says Paul Thomas, chair of the Basingstoke Foodbank, which plays a vital role in easing hunger for residents in the Basingstoke and Deane areas.

“It’s typical of the way the whole community in our town has supported the Foodbank and enabled us to feed over 10,000 people in the four years since the Foodbank started.”

The two exclusive ‘Bangers & Cash’ dishes include a sensational starter of Black Pudding Toad in the Hole with bacon crumb and apple puree and a delicious main of Greenford Farm whole grain pork sausage, pomme puree, onion jam, broccoli and truffle jus.

Each dish has been created by the Craft Guild of Chef’s Pub Restaurant Chef of the Year finalist (2015 and 2016), Gordon Stott – landlord and head chef at The Sun Inn. Of course, to celebrate British Sausage Week (which aims to raise awareness of the UK’s pork industry and farmers), all pork used will come from local farmers.

“This is a great way for us to promote British pork farmers while raising some much needed funds for this incredible charity,” chef Gordon says.

“Ordering our special ‘Bangers and Cash’ dishes is an opportunity to support those in our community who face going without food and other necessities on a daily basis. What could be more satisfying than that?”

The two special ‘Bangers and Cash’ dishes are available at The Sun Inn throughout November. To book a table or for more information visit
