Celebrity chef Tom Kerridge has extended a helping hand to families struggling with the rising cost of living with a new and affordable set menu.

From today, the £15 two-course lunch menu is available in all three of his restaurants – Manchester’s high-end Bull & Bear included – and includes all the pub favourites such as cottage pie, lasagne, sausage and mash, jam roly poly and crumble and custard.

A third course can also be added for an extra £7.50.

For context, the cheapest starter on Bull & Bear’s al a carte menu is £14.50, making the new lunch deal a real bargain.

Kerridge said he designed the new menu to ‘get the excitement and buzz back into restaurants’ amid the cost of living crisis.

The celebrated chef launched a similar menu during the financial crisis in 2008, which made ‘absolutely no money but filled the pub with noise, excitement and laughter’. 

He added: “Now in 2022, it feels like those times are here again. You can’t turn on the TV, look at social media or read a newspaper without the grim news of the cost-of-living crisis.

“So, it is time to bring back the ‘too good to be true’ offer. We are very excited to launch a set lunch £15 menu.

Bull & Bear

“Yes, that is right, £15 for two courses (a third course can be enjoyed for an additional £7.50), running across three of our sites: Kerridge’s Bar & Grill in the heart of London at The Corinthia, the one Michelin starred The Coach in Marlow, and the beautiful Bull & Bear in Manchester.”

He continued: “The dishes will champion classic pub favourites or even school dinners, so expect cottage pie, lasagne and caramelised onion sausage with mash followed by old school desserts of spotted dick, jam roly poly and crumble and custard.

“The aim is to get the excitement and buzz back into restaurants without guests having the fear of spending too much money. A taste of the good times at a fraction of the price.”

The £15 two-course lunch menu launches today at Bull & Bear. Visit the website for bookings and more information.

Ian Brown fans have been taking to social media to express their disappointment after the Stone Roses singer performed a sold-out gig without a band. 

Brown kick-started his first UK tour in a decade at the Leeds O2 Academy last night, with him due to perform at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse this Friday (September 30th).

Despite the anticipation surrounding the tour, however, fans were left disappointed by Brown’s performance last night thanks to the absence of the rest of the band, with one concert-goer describing it as Brown ‘[doing] karaoke and butchering his own tunes.’

Alongside of a video showing Brown singing alone on an empty stage, fan Steven Latham wrote: “Gutted to see @ianbrown turn up to his £40 a ticket, sold out gig at Leeds tonight WITH NO BAND.

“I’m a life long fan but it was bad. #ianbrown does karaoke and butchers his own tunes. Most were too p****d to care but I had to get out after this one.”

After his video went viral, Steven followed up his tweet by writing: “Feel a bit bad about this now, I was just so disappointed.

“We all know Ian can’t sing but there’s always a band to bring it together. Some onstage chemistry, the drummer’s energy, the guitarist’s musicianship. I think if there’s no band you should tell people up front.”

Other fans were quick to express their anger over the gig too, with another concert-goer writing: “50 quid to see Ian brown off his head doing karaoke like he’s in Neptune’s bar.”

Another commented: “Wow, that’s horrific. A massive Roses fan but think he needs to retire gracefully now like.”

However, some fans were quick to defend the singer’s performance, with one person writing: “Top night in Leeds thanks to Ian Brown. Ignore the twitter w*****s, I was there and I saw a sold out show full of people on their feet enjoying every minute.”

A second commented: “Thank you Ian Brown for the best concert ever at Leeds 02 Academy. You were incredible.”

Ian Brown’s headline tour continues tonight in Glasgow, with following shows scheduled for Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool and London.

Furious man confronts fly-tippers dumping huge 7ft fridge in Salford

The fly-tippers were forced to carry the fridge back

A furious homeowner has shared the moment he caught two fly-tippers dumping a huge 7ft fridge next to his house in Salford.

David Holmes, forty-seven, came across two men attempting to leave an old fridge on his property near Edward Avenue over the weekend. 

He filmed the altercation and shared the video onto TikTok, where it has since had over 1.4 million views.

In the explosive clip, David could be heard asking the men: “Why have you put that there next to my f*****g house?”

The fly-tippers, who reportedly run a local takeaway in the area, were evidently not expecting to be caught out and, in a second video, could be seen carrying the fridge back while quietly apologising. 

David told the Manchester Evening News that he had initially called Salford Council to report the fly-tippers after catching them in the act from his house but, being unsatisfied with their response, ‘lost control’ and went out to confront them himself.

He explained: “We have had problems with fly-tippers on this location but we go out there and pick it up. But obviously when it’s a seven foot fridge you can’t pick that up and put it in a bin.

“I called the council and they said they were going to come and remove it but I said ‘no, they need charging and fining’.

“When I first seen it I felt rage because last night I saw them taking that fridge out the shop. Why would you dump something like that next to our house, they’re supposed to be my neighbour, they can’t go around dumping stuff.”

David said the council needs to do more to combat fly-tippers, adding: “I wanted them to come down to take some names and ID’s. Charging and fining is the only way this will stop.”

Councillor Barbara Bentham, lead member for environment and community safety, Salford City Council, said: “Salford City Council received a call from a resident about an encounter with fly-tippers.

“Enforcement officers visited the site. At this stage no offence has been committed but this case is not closed and officers are investigating further with the information provided.If residents do spot fly-tipping we would advise them not to confront offenders.

“Instead, they should record details such as personal descriptions along with the registration number and make and model of any vehicles used. Residents should stay safe while they are doing this and pass all the information they have gathered to the council.”

GMP

In certain parts of Greater Manchester nuisance drivers are a real issue for residents.

One such area is Salford Quays, with people driving around late at night and keeping people up at ungodly hours.

This was the case earlier this week, when a purple Lamborghini was spotted by police causing a racket in the area.

According to GMP Salford, the brightly coloured sports car was seen ‘driving antisocially around Salford Quays, causing danger to others and making a racket during the night’.

As a result the Lamborghini Huracan was seized by officers.

GMP Salford wrote on their socials: “#WhileWeWereAway #GMPTransportUnit spotted this purple Lamborghini driving antisocially around Salford Quays, causing a danger to other road users and pedestrians, and making a racket during the night for residents.

“The Huracan was seized under s.59 Police Reform Act #NotSoSuperCar”.
