A proper British pub with a touch of eccentricity, the Yew Tree in Bunbury is a handsome village watering hole, built by the Earl of Crewe in the nineteenth Century that has been lovingly refurbished to its former glory.
A new entry on the Estrella Damm Top 50 Gastropubs list, the pub has a team of chefs who change the menu every eight weeks to reflect seasonal changes alongside a daily changing specials board in the pub.
Using award-winning Red Poll beef from next door, vegetables and fresh fruit are collected six days a week from Smithfield Markets in Manchester and cracking sausages and local meat is from butchers Burrows of Bunbury.
Daily fresh fish deliveries and cheese, yoghurt, ice cream and other dairy products are all locally-sourced.
Even chips come from potatoes on the farm before being delivered fresh in water every day, ready to be double fried in dripping for that real pub flavour.
The Yew Tree were awarded one AA Rosette in December 2016 and have been shortlisted in the Great British Pub Awards numerous times.
The pub was also shortlisted for best pub in 2015 in GQ Magazine Food and Drink Awards and was Cheshire Dining Pub of the Year 2014 and 2016 in The Good Pub Guide.
