Pub in the Park is described as the ultimate foodie festival combining food and music.

What is it about?

The man behind it is chef Tom Kerridge.

The festival celebrates everything there is to love about the glorious British pub; delicious food, award-winning chefs, chart-topping music, great drinks but above all else a fantastic time with friends and family.

Award-winning pubs and restaurants will ‘pop-up’ around each park serving £6 tasting dishes for you to get stuck into – expect your local favourites as well national heroes you may never have been able to visit.

What is there?

There is a dedicated kids area, chef demos, shopping village and artisan food market. Plus there is live music throughout.

What pub and restaurants will be there?

Festival goers can feast on exclusive dishes for only £6 a plate! Including BBQ Glazed Brisket from Kerridge’s two Michelin starred The Hand & Flowers; Proper Pie & Peas from The Horse & Groom; Sussex Lamb Moon Rellenas from The Half Moon Kirdford; and the famous Chicken Tikka Pie from Atul Kochhar Restaurants (see below an overview of menus and link to the full list).

Some of the country’s best chefs will be taking to the demo stage. Learn tips and tricks of the trade from the likes of Matt Tebbutt, Andi Oliver, Gavin Roy and Atul Kochhar to name a few. Then, dance to live gigs from Gabrielle, Soul II Soul Soundsystem, Rudimental DJ, Toploader, Jack Savoretti, The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club, and many more!

Tom Kerridge said: “I’m so excited to be bringing another incredible menu to Pub in the Park this year. We all deserve a good party and I can’t wait for everyone to dig into some great food whilst watching some quality live gigs. I know I’m looking forward to getting my hands on the other chef’s food as well!”

Great food needs great drinks! Greenall’s Gin will be serving up some summery cocktails to get you in the party mood.
