Street food venders serving up Mexican and Thai, pies and meat dishes will be pitching up at a Redhill pub on weekly basis starting tomorrow.
The White Lion in Linkfield Street is introducing Pop Up Food Fridays each week from 6pm, starting tomorrow (February 17) with Margo & Rita Mexican Food.
The distinctive purple Citroen HY van, affectionately known as Rita, has served customers at Henley Regatta and the America's Cup sailing race in Portsmouth.
Based in Kingston, it will be in The White Lion's car park serving dishes such as burritos, tacos, nachos and quesadillas.
To go with these you might choose from crispy slaws, fresh salsas, fine cheeses, Mexican rice, various beans or fresh cilantro. If you miss it on Friday, Margo & Rita will back again on March 24.
Next week (February 24) and again on March 31, Horley-based Meat the Chef will be popping up in the car park with its truck.
The man behind Meat the Chef is Christian George who received the accolade of 3 AA rosettes as the head chef at Cannizzaro House Hotel in Wimbledon.
How does buttermilk fried chicken take your fancy, featuring bacon jam, crisp gem lettuce and a demi-brioche bap?
Or maybe the Korean fried chicken with kimchi slaw, lemon pepper mayo and a demi brioche bap. Meat the Chef doesn't just do meat either – veggie options are available.
On St Patrick's Day (March 17) the MyPie truck will be at the pub with its epic pies and sides.
Perhaps the Hampshire minced beef, Fuller black pudding and smoked cheddar pie takes your fancy. Or if you're veggie you might like the option of roasted mushrooms, spinach and truffle oil filling.
There will be Thai street food from a marque outside on March 3.
It's yet to be confirmed which food company will be at the White Lion on March 10. The pub is also planning April's programme and will be continuing it beyond then. A pizza van could be added to the line-up.
Landlord Al Griffiths, who runs the pub with fiancée Sophie Lockwood, said: "We just want to make sure they are all the same kind of quality."
Al and Sophie took over the running of the pub in November 2016.
The White Lion doesn't serve food from a kitchen so Pop Up Food Fridays gives customers the chance to have something to eat while they are there.
Al said: "It just means we can concentrate on the bar area itself while we haven't got the kitchen up and running. We can concentrate on all of our customers and feed them at the end of the week when everyone needs feeding. No one likes to cook on a Friday after a long week."
Al and Sophie, who previously managed a pub in Ipswich, are looking at offering Sunday roasts in the future, maybe barbecues in the summer, and bringing in live music.
One of the changes the couple made to bring more people back to the pub, which is owned by Greene King Pubs Partners, was to welcome in children and dogs.
Al said: "Every day we are getting new people coming in. It's nice to see new faces that are coming in and people that are really local and have not been in for ages.
"It's nice to get the community back into the pub."
