Cutting down, doesn’t have to mean cutting out.

Climate change is real (despite what some might say!), and even some of the biggest carnivores among us are beginning to cut down on their meat intake. Whether it’s meat-free Mondays, or meat treats on weekends only, or completely vegetarian, eating habits are changing. Our vegetarian main sales are up 24%, and the vegetarian options … Continued

The High Field in Edgbaston turns five!

Time really does fly. Gathering the team, we started our training on what it means to give a Peachy service and have a great Gastropub. Little did we know the room we were then training in would one day become The High Field Studio.  .            It was mid September, we were … Continued
