Our 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 fresh, seasonal, classic British dishes complemented by more exotic influences from other parts of the world. Each pubs menu is different and is uploaded to their website each morning before 12 noon so that you may peruse them at your leisure to whet your appetite.

Local Gluten Free Menus

Each of our pubs offer a wide range of gluten free dishes. Most of our sauces, gravies and dressings have been gluten free for many years. But we have been working with Coeliac UK in order to develop recipes for pastries, flapjacks, shortbreads and the like in order to offer more and more gluten free options.

We adopted Coeliac UK’s training for all of our Managers and Head Chefs along with our already robust training in order to give our teams the knowledge and confidence in this area and we are thrilled to have been awarded Coeliac UK’s accreditation.

Simply look out for two symbols next to dishes on our Daily Menu; gf – gluten free and gfa – which denotes a dish that could easily be adapted to make it gluten free if you ask your server.

We recycle our used cooking oil

April 2024

Going to the pub to eat is one of life’s treats (and long may that continue) and we know that it’s a bit of a guilty pleasure, but sometimes there’s just nothing like something delicious and deep fried! Because of our love of chips (all the better if accompanied by a battered fish) we do get through rather a lot of cooking oil.

To make sure we are not wasting our oil, we use a testing system that tells us exactly when to change it and the used oil is decanted into collection bins. These are whisked away and the oil within is turned into Biodiesel. In 2023 we recycled 245,897 litres of cooking oil. The amount of mineral diesel this would have replaced equates to a saving of 524 tonnes of Carbon Emissions. Which makes us feel a little about all those chips!

Food Development Awards

Every year 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 and reward our rising stars.

At the grand finals in September the teams of two are challenged with two rounds. The first stage begins with a tray of identical ingredients and an unseen spec for each team. They have 1½ hours to prep, cook and present the dish following the spec precisely. In true ‘Great British Bake Off’ style each team places their finished starter behind a card with their name, leaving our panel of judges, Tom, Mary and Mike to compare, contrast and then pick the top three.

The idea of this task is to show that consistency, accuracy and replication need to be cornerstones of our food offer.

The second task gives each team free range to choose from an amazing larder of ingredients: guinea fowls, rabbits, pork and venison loins, lobsters, whole fish, racks of lamb (too many things to mention).

Each team has 3 hours to devise a main course and a pudding using their imagination and creativity.

It’s fair to say that the 2023 finals brought with it a consistently high standard of cooking. It was especially pleasing to see how all the team’s balanced originality and innovation whilst keeping in mind our overall food style. Margins were very close, but Sutton Hall’s Steve and Cat were crowned this year’s overall winners.

All the finalists win a prize for their efforts and the winners are taken on a fantastic culinary experience.

We owe Cheshire South & West College huge thanks for hosting us fantastically well at their Ellesmere Port Campus and Royal Greenland for their kind sponsorship.
