Crossing the Rubicon – Goodbye Curry, Hello Pizza!

A new menu and a new direction for Crossing the Rubicon!

Crossing the Rubicon are celebrating the long-awaited advent of spring into summer with a complete revamp of their food offering. This Wednesday will see the launch of a brand new menu, offering a complete change from their previous Indian tapas-style dishes.

Paying homage to Julius Caesar’s famed crossing of the Rubicon; they will now be offering Italian and German inspired pizzas, bar bites and snacks.

Crossing the Rubicon

Their pizzas will be in the ‘roman road’ style; rectangular like sections of a Roman road, with the crusts symbolising kerbstones.

In true Crossing the Rubicon style, they have worked tirelessly to offer a range of pizzas that are a bit different from the norm. 

The core offering of 20 house pizzas will cater to all dietary requirements, and there’s also the option to create your own if you’re feeling inspired.

Crossing the Rubicon Ingredients

The chefs at Crossing the Rubicon have been given carte blanch to come up with innovative ways to make the food offering truly special. Using only the freshest, seasonal ingredients to create their new range of pizzas and tasty bar bites.

From Wednesday to Friday at 5pm, there will be a selection of complimentary snacks available on the bar. Giving customers the chance to sample many of the kitchen’s new creations. Head down after work to unwind, enjoy some tasty bites and maybe partake in a midweek tipple or two. Get down sharp as it’s first come, first served.

Crossing the Rubicon Bar Snacks

The eclectic wine list has been curated by the good people at Valhallas Goat and offers a diverse range of Italian and German wines. Some safer styles feature, while others will hopefully introduce palates and minds to new and delicious traditions and regions.

The beer menu will continue as before. A core range of very well priced regular beers (including the iconic ‘Crossing the Rubicon IPA’), plus an everchanging selection of the latest, greatest and craftiest brews they can get their hands on.

Crossing the Rubicon Beers

While regulars may mourn the loss of the old Indian menu; the new offering will cater for the spicy end of the pizza market and the good folks at Crossing the Rubicon are happy to turn up the heat when challenged to do so. We’re told their homemade chilli oil is only for the brave!
