The Antelope – Surbiton, London
Suggested by Joe, our Marketing Creative

Located in Surbiton, The Antelope offers a local-friendly atmosphere with fantastic beer and food. The adjoining smoke house restaurant, The Brew House, serves incredible dishes, including, of course, roasts. Our recommendation would be to get the Brisket tacos which are to die for! They serve great beer from the brewery which as only grown in popularity across the country as they’ve expanded and often put on beer tasting festivals with other local brewers. Dog-friendly and conveniently located near Surbiton station.


The White Hart – Hythe, Kent
Suggested by Sophie, our Engineering Manager

They do a cracking roast beef dinner with yorkshire puds the size of your fist and the beef is always beautifully pink. They’re both dog and child friendly, have beautiful log fires on a cold day and are close to the Hythe Canal for a nice walk afterwards – I love it.


Redhouse – Newcastle-upon-Tyne
Suggested by Jacob, our Senior Software Engineer

One of Newcastle’s oldest pubs, absolutely fantastic pies with a great selection of beers. Proper pies too, not those “ bowl with pastry on top”. Old world, fireplace, and right on the quayside


Sheeps Heid – Edinburgh
Suggested by Carolyn, our Marketing Lead

It’s Edinburgh’s oldest pub at the foot of Arthur’s Seat. Take a nice walk through Holyrood Park from Waverley station with a delicious roast dinner (& a beverage of choice) waiting for you at the end of it. Food is great, it’s full of character, cosy and everything you are looking for from a pub.


Three Horseshoes – Batcombe, Somerset
Suggested by Iain, our CEO 

Founded by the team behind London’s esteemed St John restaurant, which is one of THE best restaurants in London and has been for a few decades. The fish pie is incredible, as is the belting wine list. With a picturesque countryside setting and a roaring open fire, it’s an ideal spot for a cozy Easter Sunday meal.


The Bell at Skenfrith – Monmouthshire
Suggested by Iain, our CEO 

Situated in a 17th-century coaching inn, The Bell at Skenfrith offers Herefordshire beef sirloin roast alongside stunning views of the River Monnow, which is perfect for a summer swim in front of the pub after a big hike in the hills around it. After you’ve walked off some calories, unwind with a sumptuous meal and local beer.


The Drunken Duck – Barnsgates, Lake District
Suggested by Iain, our CEO 

100% the best beer garden in the country, maybe world? Looks out over the fells and peaks of the lakes, they brew their own beer out the back, outstanding restaurant, rooms upstairs and a brilliant location.


The Flying Stag – Braemar, Cairngorms
Suggested by Iain, our CEO 

Nestled in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park within The Fife Arms, The Flying Stag offers a unique blend of Scottish hospitality, great food, and live music. Walk for miles in the highlands, then come here for big roaring fires with delicious fare and local brews.


Strawberry Duck – Bolton
Suggested by Ben, our Data Analyst

Set in the countryside near Bolton, Strawberry Duck offers a perfect retreat after a walk around the reservoir.

With great ale, open fires, and delicious food, it’s an ideal spot to savor a traditional Easter Sunday roast. Don’t forget to wave down the train at the nearby request stop station!
