Food

Our passion lies in finding quality ingredients and preparing, cooking and presenting them in a modern but unpretentious way. Our menus have a spine of freshly prepared, classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. They change slightly every week, with a more substantial change approximately every month. We upload them to our web site each day before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure to whet your appetite.

Food Development Award Finals

This year's annual Food Development Awards 'Final of Finals' took place in Chester. Although there was a high level of competitiveness the atmosphere is always one of fun with an ever-growing number of head office crew 'just popping over' to see what's on offer at the development kitchen.

The official judging panel of our MD Mary Willcock and 'Head of all things food' Mike Carney had their work cut out to choose 4 winning dishes from regional north and south winners. It's always difficult, but 'With such an amazing spectrum on offer, it's becoming ever more difficult to decide a winner with the diversity of dishes'. This year they were faced between choosing an overall 'light bite' winner between a vegan dish of 'Roast savoy hearts with crispy noodle salad, soy and sesame dressing' offered by the team at the Wharf and the Mill House's offering of 'Slow braised beef cheeks' - the difference between the dishes couldn't be more polar opposite, but both will one day be loved equally we are sure by our B&P customers.

Food Development Awards

Every summer we run a competition across all of our pubs to crown creators of the best dishes. Each pub enters a junior chef and front of house partnership to represent them in our company wide competition to develop the best starter, main and pudding.

At the grand finals in September all the dishes are judged against each other and the supreme champion is crowned. The winning team enjoy the glory, the admiration and undoubtedly the accusations of bias and double-dealing from all their peers and they also receive a trophy, a case or two of something quaffable to celebrate their success with the rest of their team and a great prize dining experience in somewhere very 'posh and foodie', along with all the other finalists.

As doting customers, we benefit from the fruits of their labours when the delicious dishes are added to their menus.
