Food and Drink

Summer’s here – time for beautiful British soft fruit, and the best green vegetables, tomatoes and salads. Cornish lamb and day-boat fish are plentiful and delicious now – and look out for native lobsters in our specials.

We always serve the good stuff. It’s one of our most dearly-held values. We only serve what we want to eat and drink ourselves. Our Head Chef and his skilled brigade devise our seasonal menus and our specials change daily. 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.

All our meat is British and of the highest quality, from Aubrey Allen; an eighty year-old Warwickshire butcher suppling many of Britain’s finest restaurants as well as holding The Queen’s Royal Warrant. Our steaks are from Britain’s finest (increasingly rare) beef herds, 28-day dry-aged for stupendous flavour. Our Cotswold White chickens are free-range, as are our eggs and pork. Our lamb is Cornish. Our fish is native where possible, and we follow the ever-changing advice on sustainability.

We don’t have a children’s menu, because we think they should eat food that’s as good as yours. Our chefs are happy to make smaller portions or simplified versions of anything on our menu.

We love being a real pub as well as a great Gastropub. With Continental beers and lagers including Peroni and Estrella, and 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, Tanners, Liberty Wines & Boutinot. Each has its own specialities, allowing us to pack our list with a great range of top-quality and interesting wines. Let us help you choose something delicious to match your mood or your food.

 


Lianne Sargent, General Manager

Lianne’s career started at the tender age of 5 as a glass collector for her parents, so hospitality runs strongly through those veins! After briefly flirting with the idea of becoming a lawyer or interior designer, she decided to stick to what she knew best, and her amazing career continued, working in only top-quality pubs, restaurants and boutique hotels. When she’s not working she’s organising friends and family to come together to eat something delicious both out and at home. Italy is one of her personal favourites and put a glass of wine or prosecco and a big bowl of pasta or fresh fish in front of her and she’s a very happy lady.

Lianne’s is fiercely passionate about the detail, and brings energy and drive to her team, challenging everyone to push for the very best every time. She’s an excellent trainer and would love to one day run several pubs for Peach. With her beaming smile and that glint in that eye, you know Lianne is in the room, so pop in for a glass of fizz and a darn good plate of food soon, and if you look closely enough, you might just see that her socks are inside out – a strange but true fact!


Frazer Sutherland, Partner

Frazer always wanted to be in hospitality since ‘year dot’. Dabbling in domestic science at school only fuelled his passion and catering college sealed his fate. He loved working at The Summit in Sydney and cruising round the Caribbean. Back in London, he clubbed it at The Green Room, now Chinawhite, before moving to Harvey Nicks Fifth Floor. Heights must have suited Frazer because his next job was at The Oxo Tower, when the brasserie with the bird’s eye view of London was really flying. Since becoming a partner in Peach in 2008, Frazer has looked after many of our pubs including, The Thatch, The James Figg, The Swan and The Black Horse.
