It’s been just over two weeks since we reopened the doors at The One Elm, after a top-to-toe refurbishment making the friendly neighbourhood pub the perfect place to eat, drink and catch up with friends any time.
As well as transforming the look and feel of the pub, we’ve brought a brand new all-day menu of top-notch pub dishes, made with great quality fresh ingredients, to enjoy with a pint of well-kept ale or a glass of wine, whenever you visit. There are also some tempting new offers and events to get everyone excited.
Our second pub opened, it’s been well-loved and used by the people of Stratford for almost 15 years, and is constantly busy. In the two years our General Manager, Mat Faulkner, has been running the pub, we’ve made many friends, welcomed old faces and new and won plenty of awards for looking after our guests.
Painted in soft sage green, with comfy leather armchairs and booth seating, as well as plenty of tables and chairs, the One Elm is the ideal spot to hole up on chillier evenings, especially when the fire is lit. Upstairs the loft has been transformed with cosy booths upholstered in rich fabrics, country style dressers, vintage tables and a new log fire. And we’ve even given our lovely courtyard a make-over so there’s more space to sit back over a drink and something good to eat, when the weather permits.
We are now open for breakfast every weekend from 9am too, and the new bar positively glows with warm copper, ideal for propping up over a pint of local ale from Stratford’s Purity Brewing Company or Church Farm Brewery in Warwick. Both go down particularly well with one of the new bar snacks – free-range Scotch eggs and brown sauce; Westcombe Cheddar and ham hock croquettes or honey and mustard mini sausages. Or with a classic fish finger sarnie or a satisfying Aubrey Allen’s Steak bloomer filled with a dry-aged flat iron steak, red onion jam, watercress and horseradish.
Burgers are better than ever, with a choice of The One Elm coarse-ground steak burger, Cheddar cheese and burger sauce; breaded chicken burger with baby gem lettuce and garlic mayo and the new Two Elm – a double burger with cheese, lettuce, tomato and burger sauce. All come with a range of extras from bacon, fried egg, gherkins and jalapeños, and with chips, thick or thin.
Mains include classics like fish and chips and mac and cheese alongside proper ham, egg and chips. A new grill and sizzler menu features seriously good chicken, King prawn and marinated halloumi sizzlers and great steaks from Aubrey Allen, with two mains for £25 every Wednesday night.
Tuesday is two for one on burgers, and cocktails are two for one on Thursday between 7pm-9pm. The new One Elm is everything you could wish for in a great, neighbourhood pub, and we can’t wait to share it with you. Come and see us soon.
