Yew Tree 2

The Yew Tree welcomes first guests

The Yew Tree, Bunbury, opened the doors to their first guests last  Thursday.  After acquiring the lease for The Yew Tree in March 2018, Chester Race Company have invested into refreshing the country pub before opening its doors to the public again.

The 19th century Free House is set in the idyllic village of Bunbury near Tarporley. Work has been undertaken to freshen up the Cheshire pub to create a home from home feel. Keeping the main rooms, traditional with a modern twist.

The garden room was created using rattan and driftwood, using a Barney Gates wallcovering, giving a lighter feel. Inside the main pub, intimate dining areas have been created with cool linen upholstery and a dramatic antler chandelier.

Bunbury local and Head Chef, Craig Wainwright and his team have been hard at work over the past few months designing a wholesome menu that will entice locals and visitors from further afield.

Available from the bar, there will be a selection of nibbles and sharing boards to devour, including a garlic and thyme spiked camembert with Haughton honey pot and sourdough toast to share, the perfect taster for a warm spring evening.

Featured on the menu and already a favourite within the team is the Yew Tree signature pudding. Buttery, soft pastry casing is filled with slow cooked ox cheek and kidney, served simply with greens and triple cooked chips.

For those looking for a lighter bite to eat, the delicate spring salad is top of the list and goes perfectly with a crisp glass of Riesling Pinot Blanc. Piled high, with baby carrots, fine beans, fresh watercress, confit tomatoes, candied beets, pea emulsion and a walnut dressing.

On the pudding menu, the sticky toffee pudding is not to be missed, served with a dollop of Clutton Dairy clotted cream, lashings of butterscotch sauce and a caramelised banana.
