New Tiny Rebel chef wows with rustic Welsh menu

Tiny Rebel, the Welsh brewery – based in Newport – has unveiled a fresh new, rustic-inspired, bar menu for spring 2017. The tempting main courses champion a home-cooked style with a contemporary twist: from flat-iron steak ‘diane’, (served together with rustic fries, garlic crumbed baby gem lettuce and grilled tomato), to chicken schnitzel, (which comes with buttered greens, garlic aioli and a fried hen’s egg), to tasty vegetarian fayre such as roasted beet and goat’s cheese (with wild rocket, candied walnuts and honey mustard dressing). With Sunday lunches and Mother’s Day in mind, the menu also includes Welsh favourites such as rarebit; Welsh beer-battered fish; and sumptuous meat, vegetarian dishes and vegan specials.


The fresh new menu launches today in Tiny Rebel’s Newport bar (High Street, Newport) as the award-winning brewery welcomes their brand new chef Rickie Ash. Rickie’s culinary experience includes Celtic Manor and The Ridgeway. He is also going to be rolling out tailored new menus across Tiny Rebel’s Cardiff bar and the new Rogerstone, Newport, bar which opens in summer 2017, at the company’s new brewery. Tiny Rebel recently renamed both its Urban Tap House bars to bring them under the Tiny Rebel brand.


Tiny Rebel’s own beers will be featured in a number of the new dishes, from a Rocksteady cider infused Scotch egg to a ‘Dirty Stop Out’ (smoked oat stout) infused chocolate cake. Tiny Rebel’s delicious vegan specials include grilled flatbread with harissa glazed vegan mince, chilli & coriander dressing & toasted pumpkin seeds.


Chef, Rickie Ash said: “This menu combines delicious local produce from South Wales with the inspiring flavours of some of our best-loved beers. We anticipate the new menu will appeal to families on a Sunday afternoon;  fans of our craft beer and anyone who’s seeking a tasty alternative to generic fast food.”


Tiny Rebel’s Newport bar will extend opening, to include Sundays, from Mother’s Day 2017 onwards (Sunday, 26th March).

About Tiny Rebel Brewing Co.


It all began in a garage in 2008, where Brad & Gazz homebrewed on weekends. They got pretty good at it, and being beer geeks at heart, they always took things one step further – early 2012, Tiny Rebel was born.


A year later, they took the Great Welsh Beer Festival by storm winning Gold, Silver and Bronze in the Champion Beer of Wales competition. They won Champion Beer of Wales again in 2014. Their flagship beer Cwtch was declared Champion Beer of Britain at the 2015 Great British Beer Festival, an achievement they are extremely proud of.


They went on to win SIBA (Society of Independent Brewers) Best Overall UK Brewery, as well as Best UK Brewery at the International Beer Challenge in 2016.


In 2014, they opened Cardiff’s first ever, fully-devoted craft beer bar and in 2015 their second bar in Newport. 2017 sees them step into their brand new purpose built brewery site, including a brewery bar and events space.
