Suggy’s Salad


Newark is home to many great things – not least ex-World Champion Kick Boxer Dean Sugden. Dean and the folks at the World renowned Suggy’s Gym are currently working hard with 2nd generation Sugden – namely Chad, in his journey to no.1 in professional boxing, after reaching world No.2 in professional KickBoxing.

For some years now, Dean, Chad, Regis and Bailey Sugden have been coming to Stray’s to eat. Stray’s Co-owner Mat got chatting with Dean and Chad who thought it would be great to have some nutritionally focused dishes on the menu.

“to come up with a tasty but healthy re-fuel option to eat on a heavy training day but also a clean but tasty meal that you could enjoy when you may not be training quite so hard…”
Chad Sugden

The result is two new salad dishes, put together by Chad’s Nutritionist Bobby Madge of GoodFit Nutrition and Consultant Chef Warren Jones.

“to be able to eat clean and enjoy not just the food but the atmosphere – that’s why we discussed these great new dishes with Stray’s. When you are training clients and don’t have a lot of time, Stray’s always present you with fresh & quality food, really quickly, even when they’re busy…”
Dean Sugden


A salad of cucumber, tomato, lettuce, mixed peppers, spring onion, chives and a boiled egg. Topped with your choice of either Marinated Chicken breast or Salmon in honey, lemon and oil dressing.
