Welcome to the Signal

A house of family and fun

At The Signal we want to be a reflection of the needs of our local community. On any given day there is always a diverse mix of people to be found in The Signal, from mums with their babies to local musicians and artists at the bar. We believe that is what makes The Signal so special.  Our food harks back to the ale taverns of old which revolves open fire cooking from our English charcoal rotisserie and grill to produce a stripped back menu. It relies on us using the best possible ingredients, looking after them well, and cooking them simply and respectfully.


Easter Weekend

Eggciting times!

Once again, we’ve gone all Willy Wonka on you…no, not a golden ticket. It’s PURPLE scotch egg 2.0!

11 lucky hunters will win £100 (Hippo gift voucher) over the Easter weekend. All you have to do is find the Scotch egg that has been soaked in beetroot and purple when cut into.

Hidden across all our Hippo watering holes so time for a Hippo pub crawl and some major scotch egg feasting this Easter weekend!

Otis Mensah
“a young story-teller-rapper-poet with a talent for drawing the poetic from the everyday happenings in his life.”
The alternative hip-hop artist has risen from a new wave; age and era, embodying a contemporary, poetic take on hip-hop music. The music he creates sheds light on existential commonalities discovered through introspection with often off-kilter lyrics, accompanied by a sentimental vibe.

More acts TBA!

£10 tickets include great music, great vibes, and a Fourpure beer on us!
