The Giant Peach

Our blog about all things peachy


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

Happy Hollies Days

Yesterday was one for the history books. No win is as sweet as a win over the Aussies and even that legendary Sunday morning at Edgbaston in 2005 now has a rival in the fond memories of England cricket fans. I must have been born under a lucky star to be at both of these … Continued

A South African Adventure

If one of your bosses emailed to ask if you would like to spend five days in South Africa with a group of awesome Peaches & representatives from our wine suppliers Boutinot, tasting wine and eating all manner of deliciousness, how long do you think it would take you to reply? With me it was … Continued

Home to one of the largest fishing ports in the UK, we are honoured to work so closely with the fishermen, enabling us to source sustainably, … Continued

What We Did in 2017

Lots actually. We started by slathering care and attention on the lovely, eccentric pub we acquired right at the end of 2016. The Duke of Wellington, between Guildford and Leatherhead, is listed for its great age and its fabulous fancy brickwork, scattered across the pretty village of East Horsley by local landowner Lord Lovelace in … Continued

The Peach Passport dash

If you follow any of our pubs on social media, you may have seen our Peach Passports. To celebrate our 15th birthday, we thought it would be fun to have a little race, and see which of our guests would be the first to visit all Peach Pubs. Each pub received 100 passports, to give … Continued

15 years with Lee Cash

Seeing all our team together totally blows my mind. It only happens once a year, at our summer party, 400 people or so, in a field, in a big top, with bars, BBQ, circus acts, dodgems (this year), band, DJ. Wow! Long way from sitting in front of my desktop, in my flat on the Hagley … Continued
