Exciting News for Harthill Cookery School

The Bear & Ragged Staff

Martin will be no stranger to those of you who have been on one of our Beer & Food Pairing evenings.  He is one of only a handful of beer sommeliers in the country and his previous venture won best beer pub in the Great British Pub awards.  More recently, Martin has developed an award-winning craft beer and food concept in the Midlands, which he regularly brings to Harthill Cookery School.

An Award-Winning Combination

What better combination than an award-winning chef and an award-winning beer sommelier? Whilst the focus will, of course, be on great food and drink, there will be a first-floor function room along with eight ensuite bedrooms, all of which will provide a fantastic venue for celebrations, events, and meetings.

As Martin says: "the possibilities emerging from our combined skills, contacts and development of an independently owned free-of-tie pub are so exciting. At the heart of it all is great food, drink and hospitality, we look forward to sharing further news as the project evolves."

The 'Run-Up'

It was an unlikely meeting on Harthill Green that struck up a conversation between Brian and Martin one summer's evening several years ago.

"I went out to snip some herbs for a dish I was cooking" said Brian, "the Tattenhall Runners were gathering in the village ahead of a run. I knew a few of them so we were having a chat, Martin introduced himself and we started to share our similar passion for food & drink. The seed was sown."

The timing wasn't right at that point, however, conversations became more regular and the desire to do something together grew.  Harthill Pub Co was born and the search for a site began.  During a conversation with another friend, Tattenhall resident and investor, Richard Payne-Gill, it became clear that he shared the pair's vision and had the skills and experience to complete the team.

A Recipe for Success

The trio have ambitious plans to restore the pub and renovations are well under way. Richard added "it's a wonderful building which we are working hard to restore and, by making a significant investment, we will create something special. We have a shared vision to create a cracking pub restaurant with rooms that will be a venue for the village and a destination for people from the surrounding area."

We'll keep you updated on the pub's progress!
