A Hartlepool pub has become a taste sensation as it reveals the world’s first ‘lickable’ menu.

The Travellers Rest, on Stockton Road, came up with the innovative idea as the solution to the dilemma of choosing what to have from the menu.

The Flaming Grill pubs’ ‘scratch and lick’ menu was developed by its flavour experts who teamed up with food scientists and engineers to develop the new LickTech technology.

The new technology allows guests to taste their food before they order, making sure diners know exactly what they’re in for.

New items on the ‘scratch and lick’ menu include the barbeque marinated double dipped rib eye steak; its five flavour ‘frickin’ chicken skewers’ and its newest challenge dish, the ‘mother clucker sandwich.’

The menus also include a specially created sani-safe coating, meaning that they are free from germs within five seconds of being licked.

Suzanne Mason, general manager at the Travellers Rest, said: “We’ve all been there, everyone’s ready to order and you just can’t decide what to have. 
“Even worse, you place the order, the food arrives and food envy immediately sets in.

“We’ve been working on the technology to allow guests to effectively try before they buy for a number of years now, and with our new menu having a wider range of flavours than ever before, we felt that now was the time to reveal the new offering to help guests make more informed decisions.”

The new ‘scratch and lick’ menus will be available from today, Saturday, April 1.
