Carefully Crafted Menu
The National’s Head Chef, Saul O’Reilly will showcase the best of local with his carefully created menu which includes, Braised Pork, Ox Cheeks and locally sourced cheeses as the final pairing course.
He has picked flavour notes in the beer that complement the flavour notes in each delicious dish.
