The Giant Peach

Our blog about all things peachy


A beautifully small family-run distillery

We’re very strong on our ethos and even though it might cost us more, to always serve the good stuff is  a value we always stay true to. Karl and Lindsay Bond started distilling in their garage in 2014, as with Lindsay being coeliac, home brewing beer just wasn’t possible. Supermarket own vodka mixed with … Continued

Why Hudson Baby Bourbon is our favourite…

December 1933: New York rejoices at the end of prohibition and in 2005 Tuthilltown Spirits brings the tradition of small batch spirits back to the Hudson Valley. Hudson Baby Bourbon is the first legal pot-still whiskey produced since prohibition, and today they distill whiskey using grain harvested from farmers less than ten miles away. Proud to … Continued

A Vegan education with Mildreds

I’ve been in the hospitality trade for 11 years now, and over the time I’ve been fortunate enough to try many unique and unusual meat, fish and cheese dishes and picked out a fair few favourites. It was with great excitement, when on Wednesday 11th July, I joined our brigade of Chefs on a vegan education … Continued

Live Life on The Veg

Over the last 12 months, we’ve really seen a spike in interest in a more plant-based diet. So much so, more and more of our pubs are hosting vegetarian and vegan nights, and our teams attending inspiration days with friends from Mildreds. The High Field’s weekly veggie night has proven popular, and blogger Word in … Continued

Maybe you’re doing dry January (we’re proud of you!), or perhaps you want to do you bit for … Continued

Lobster worth paying for…

On arriving at the sleepy harbour town of Brixham, it only took a quick glance out to the coast to notice just how busy this little fishing port is. 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

A personal tour with Creative Director, Jo Eames

Jo Eames, our Creative Director and chief wine buyer, takes us on a personal tour of Peach Pubs as we celebrate 15 years of Making Life Peachy. Favourite Peach building: It’s got to be the quirky old Duke of Wellington in East Horsley. I really love pubs with character and this one has got it … Continued

Christmas in Hospitality

For us caterers, Christmas sings atmosphere, countless turkey lunches, mulled wine and parties! Whether you love it or loathe it, it promises a busy time for all involved. At Peach, we get started back in August, with a session planning this year’s festivities. All the pubs get together, pull on their Santa hats and enjoy a … Continued

Meet our asparagus grower…

The asparagus season is one that starts when the frosts are over and it is good and ready, you can never predict it. Especially this year. We get it straight from one farm which means that we can’t guarantee when it will be on our tables. I guess that’s what we get for only serving … Continued
