Also a Peruvian burger with aged beef, crispy pork, aji rocotto ketchup, aji Amarillo mustard & salsa criolla, the Global Traveller burger with aged beef, gorgonzola, balsamic onions, pancetta & truffle aioli, plus the pub’s specially-created new signature burger The Gunmakers, with aged beef, Giovanna ham, Cornish brie, roasted pineapple, watercress & Mezcal BBQ sauce.
