Following the success of its original Camden site, the second Porky’s BBQ restaurant opens just over a year later this June on Bankside. Porky’s BBQ offers Memphis-style barbecue dishes, Americana-inspired cocktails and a wide selection of bourbons and rye whiskies, as well as craft beers.
The 3,330 sq ft site – 104-cover restaurant – will feature an open plan kitchen and a holding bar. The straightforward menu will serve classics such as the Memphis meaty ribs and tips (pork ribs smoked on low and slow) and as well as the addition of Hounddogs (100% British pork sausage with fried onions in a soft bun). An extended list of over twenty bourbons will also be available as well as an extended list of cocktails.
Design-wise, the restaurant will take its inspiration from the music and memorabilia of the deep south, with an accompanying playlist of classic country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll tracks.
Porky’s BBQ is the brainchild husband and wife team, Simon and Joy Brigg who developed the concept following their travels around America. The duo is currently looking for a third site.
Restaurant Property acted on behalf of the Landlord and brokered the deal to Porky’s BBQ. Mark Calder of Restaurant Property says “Porky’s BBQ has been a huge hit in Camden and the concept is right on trend. The location has been treated as slightly off pitch but as Porky’s aren’t so quite sensitive to location we are confident that this will be a huge success and fantastic for the area. I can’t wait to see the lace when they open the doors in June”.
