  • A word from the chef:

    “The menu we’ve created for Great Guns Social is a celebration of the southern way of cooking and flavours. “Whilst there is a discernible influence of Mozambique-style cuisine, the influences of other southern areas including the Americas, Europe and Africa all feature: In essence, a grill. In practicality, far more.” “We’ve traded at nearby Maltby Street Market for many years and we know the locals, and visitors to the area, are hugely passionate about their food. We can’t wait to get in to the kitchens at Great Guns Social and to offer a little bit of southern cuisine to Borough’s customers.” African Volcano began when Cape Town-born husband-and-wife team, Grant and Julie, created their own, Mozambique-style Peri Peri sauces in 2012.
