Hooray for Summer

The season of wonderful British soft fruit and the freshest green vegetables, tomatoes and sweetcorn. Cornish lamb and day-boat fish are abundant and beautiful. And we can’t wait for the native lobsters to arrive – watch out for them on special.

Food & Drink

Our head chef and his skilled brigade devise our seasonal menus and a range of tempting daily specials (check out our blackboards around the pub!). As well as celebrating our increasingly-vibrant British food culture, the focus on seasonal ingredients means we buy the best stuff when it’s at the best price. This way we keep prices sensible even though we’re buying top quality ingredients.

We serve the good stuff. All our meat is British and of the highest quality, from Aubrey Allen. This eighty year-old Warwickshire butcher supplies many of Britain’s finest restaurants as well as holding HM The Queen’s Royal Warrant.

We love being a real pub as well as a great gastro pub. With Continental beers and lagers including Peroni and Estrella.

We are serious about our spirits too. Tanqueray Gin and Ketel One Vodka are our current favourites for pouring. Or try the range of premium gins, vodkas and aperitifs from our drinks list.

Our wine is chosen by Jo Eames, co-owner of Peach, from three multi award-winning suppliers, Tanner’s of Shrewsbury, Liberty Wines & Boutinot. We were more than happy to see our wine list described in the Michelin Guide 2008 as ‘small but well-chosen with a decent selection by the glass’.
