Food for Thought: Electric Bar birthday and bacon for brunch

Written by on 14th March 2013

On this week’s Food for Thought I found out how the Electric Bar celebrated their first birthday as well as enjoy a spot of brunch. I also do apologise for croaking my way through the programme as a cold made me lose my voice. Very annoying when doing the radio but I tried my best.

You can listen to this week’s show here:


A few weeks back the Electric Bar, which is on top of the Hilton Hotel, celebrated its first birthday. Their party had lavish cocktails and expensive cars but was also a chance to find out how the first year had been. So I spoke to the general manager, Philip Walker, as well as the head chef, Phil Henson.


If you want to try something a bit different to the normal Sunday roast then why not experiment with brunch. Stokes cafe at The Collection are now serving brunch on Sundays. So to find out more about the meal and what new foods to try out I spoke to Jean Sebastian Braen, general manager at the Stokes High Bridge and Collection cafes.


There are some great items on the menu and I tried out the pancakes with bacon and maple syrup which was definitely a treat for a cold Sunday morning.
