British restaurateurs Tim Scudamore and Ryan Harrison have taken over the former Latitude 33 space on Bree Street to open up their own British-style gastronomic pub called The Crazy Horse. The pub, which will launch on Saturday 24 June, is set to offer locals a taste of stylish pub grub, a carefully curated wine list, and a wide range of beers.
On the inspiration behind the new spot, Tim explains, “We identified a gap in the market and wanted to introduce the concept of a ‘proper gastronomic pub’ to Capetonians, catering for those who want unpretentious, delicious pub cuisine in a relaxed environment, or to simply kick back with a cold one and catch the game.”
The menu at The Crazy Horse has been designed by Matt Manning, a private chef and the creator of the One Ingredient dining experience. Think Scotch eggs with salty sausage and black pudding; pork scratchings; hash-brown croquettes; and cauliflower-cheese balls with smoky dip. On the more traditional front, there’ll be beef-and-ale pie with gravy and mash, as well as classics like English trifle and Bakewell pud.
The look and feel of the new pub will also be inspired by posh English watering holes, complete with leather booths, real wood finishes and a stately bar.
