Patrick’s Restaurant, Bar and Event Catering in Ashley Cross is offering a helping hand to customers looking to tighten the purse-strings this January, with the launch of a new £5 menu.

Offering everything from bangers and mash with onion gravy and chicken linguini in marinara sauce, to lighter bites such as scampi wrap with tartare sauce, salad and fries, Patrick’s has introduced the menu in a bid to brighten up what can be the most depressing month of the year.

Patrick Michael, owner of Patrick’s Restaurant, Bar and Event Catering, said: “There’s not much to look forward to in January. In the aftermath of Christmas, people haven’t much spare cash for meals out and socialising, which can exacerbate feelings of low mood.

“We hope the new £5 menu will give those who don’t usually get out at this time of year the opportunity to treat themselves.”

In addition to the £5 menu, Patrick’s provides a loyalty card scheme for regular customers, which offers people the incentive to use the bar and restaurant more. The scheme was launched in August 2014 and is the only one of its kind in Ashley Cross, so it enables customers to benefit from exclusive incentives that aren’t available at any other bars or restaurants in the immediate area.

What’s more, those who sign up for the loyalty card will receive a £10 voucher for joining, which can be redeemed on food and drink at Patrick’s.

Patrick’s is open every day from 10am for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For more information about the loyalty card scheme, visit
