The launch of their Christmas menu, available to enjoy from Thursday, will see £1 from the sale of every portion of Winter Spiced Churros go to Peterborough-based Little Miracles to support their work with families that have children with additional needs, disabilities and life-limiting conditions.

Fried-dough pastry snacks traditionally enjoyed in Spain and Portugal, churros have spread their wings in recent years and become a fan favourite at Christmas markets and on festive menus around the world.

The decision to add churros with a charity element to the the Queen Street pub’s new menu was a simple one, as pub manager Angela Ennis explains: “This year we’re keen to repay some of the incredible support our local community has shown us in recent months, and ending 2020 on a high by raising much needed funds for Little Miracles feels like a great way to do this. Our new Winter Spiced Churros dish with warm chocolate sauce was an instant hit at the menu tasting with our team, so it was a no-brainer that this tasty treat would become our charity dish and help to support a great local cause.

“Visitors can enjoy their churros with the peace of mind that we’re continuing to take Covid seriously. As we’ve done throughout 2020, we’ll be staying on top of evolving government regulations and taking every precaution possible to ensure that The Queen’s Head offers a safe yet thoroughly enjoyable environment for our friends in the community.”
