At Chef & Brewer we’re all about classic country pubs. We want you to feel right at home in our historic buildings where you’ll be relaxing alongside warm, open fires, charming wooden beams, and the beautiful British countryside. Our team will take care of your throughout your visit and offer full table service during your meals.

We take great pride in serving up delicious, freshly-prepared dishes and our recipes use the best seasonal ingredients. You’ll be able to choose from a fantastic selection of much-loved pub classics. That’s not to mention the whole new world of dishes and flavours we offer with a Chef & Brewer twist, like our Caribbean-Style Chicken and Pimm’s Eton Mess Sundae.

As well as great food, we also love great beer. If you do too, then you’ll feel right at home at Chef & Brewer where you’ll always be able to choose from our finest real ales. If you’re a CAMRA member, even better – you’ll get 10% off all our cask ales.

Not a fan of beer? We also have a fantastic range of wine, seasonal long drinks and soft drinks.


We enjoy creating new dishes and that’s why we often have themed food menus available. With our game, fish & seafood and celebration of British farmers (British Born & Bred) menus you can try something new and learn all about the ingredients too.

A great beer garden can be what makes a British pub experience truly special. Our beer gardens are often full of as much character as the pubs themselves – the perfect spot to enjoy a cold, refreshing beer on a hot summer’s day.

If you love to explore the beautiful British countryside, why not build up your appetite or work off that hearty lunch with one of the nearby country pub walks? We know our local area like the back of our hand and we certainly know where to find the most stunning spots. Ask a member of our team for advice on the best walking routes.
