We use three main suppliers all within a 10-mile radius of the pub - the highest quality meat from Todenham Manor Farm, the freshest fruit and vegetables from D.E and D.M Drinkwater and award-winning cheese from The Cotswold Cheese Company.
With the Cotswolds lack of coastline, we get our fish and seafood delivered daily from the Cornish based, Flying Fish company. Responsibly sourced and beautifully fresh, the fish arrives into our kitchen within just 48 hours of being on the quayside.
And it’s not just the food that’s local, all our beautiful artwork, which brings the Cotswold countryside indoors, comes from local photographer Michele Ardu.
I would certainly say Pub in the Park is up there with one of best things I have ever done, the atmosphere and buzz over those 3 days was just electric and I felt so lucky to be a part of it all. All in all, we served around 4000 dishes over the 3 days, the most popular being the Mackerel Taco which sold out on each session, I couldn’t have asked for a better crowd though as they were all willing to try the other dishes we had to offer. One of my favourite moments had to be that I got to celebrate my birthday which was on the Sunday In such an incredible way, meeting a huge amount of kind and wonderful people as well as watching The Milk who are one of my favourite bands.
Last year’s Pub in the Park festivals were so much fun, I can’t wait to bring excellence in food, world class chefs, ace music and an awesome vibe to eight locations across the UK this year.
