The White Swan in Shawell Launches New Corporate Express Lunch Menu

Many of us are guilty of not venturing outside the four walls of our office during our lunches and some of us choose to skip our legally entitled breaks completely. What’s more, studies have highlighted that the majority of us dine ‘Al Desko’, hunched at our desks still watching our computer screens as we eat. The content of our lunches is equally as depressing, with 1 in 3 office workers eating the same meal every day of the working week.

In a bid to break the nation’s unhealthy habit, Leicestershire’s Michelin accredited pub, The White Swan have crafted an Express Menu, designed for dine-out workers with a time limit. Offering a selection of beautifully presented and uniquely flavoured dishes, the White Swan’s Express Menu targets local businesses, inviting them to leave their desks and treat themselves during the week – all within 45 minutes.

Rory McClean, the White Swan’s owner and Head Chef has said the reason behind the Express Menu is: ‘We’re all short of time – especially during the working week. However, we don’t think this should be an excuse for boring sandwiches or last night’s left overs. We want to inject exciting flavours into our local corporate’s working week and show that a luxury affordable lunch can be had in 45 minutes!’

The White Swan was taken over by Rory McClean and Samantha Laye in 2012 with the intention of rebuilding its reputation by injecting a new lease of life into the pub. The transformation of the White Swan has included the implementation of outstanding seasonal menus and an enticingly unusual interior which has sparked interest from some of the top culinary institutions. With Rory’s experience of working in three previous Michelin kitchens; it’s no surprise that the White Swan has earnt itself a Michelin accolade and been recommended in two of the 2018 Michelin Food Guides.

Having identified the number of corporate lunchers who often skip lunch, Rory and Samantha are encouraging office workers to give themselves the lunch break they deserve and leave their desks to delight in a delicious seasonal menu that can be ordered, served and eaten within a lunch hour, the Express Menu is the perfect solution for a luxury but quick lunch.

Coming in at an affordable £15 for an amuse bouche, side, main course and petit fours, the Express Menu boasts an eclectic mix of locally sourced ingredients: from smoked salmon & avocado on Irish soda bread, to pork belly hash and a poached hen’s egg, and Greek salad to rib-eye steak sandwich. The White Swan prides itself on serving its guests delightful, fresh food that is unforgettable in both its taste and aesthetic – the Express Menu is no exception.

As a family run business with a passion for crafting unique flavours and a flair for outstanding culinary presentation, the White Swan’s values lie in the quality of their food, impeccable attention to detail and expert knowledge that comes from years of experience and a strong desire to provide an outstanding service for their guests.

Hoping to entice workers out of the office at lunch time, The White Swan’s new Express Menu encompasses all of the above, inviting corporate bookings, client wine and dines and those looking for a timely, indulgent lunch.
