At Brookmans – a Contemporary Gastropub near Hatfield, Hertfordshire
We serve the good stuff. All our meat is British and of the highest quality, from Aubrey Allen. This eighty year-old Warwickshire butcher supplies many of Britain’s finest restaurants as well as holding HM The Queen’s Royal Warrant. Our steaks are from Britain’s finest (increasingly rare) beef herds, 28-day dry-aged for stupendous flavour. Our chicken and pork is free-range, as are our eggs and ice-cream. Our lamb is Cornish. Our fish is native where possible, and we follow the ever-changing advice on sustainability.
Our head chef and his skilled brigade devise our seasonal menus with a range of tempting daily specials (check out our blackboards around the pub!). As well as celebrating our increasingly-vibrant British food culture, the focus on seasonal ingredients means we buy the best stuff when it’s at the best price. This way we keep prices sensible even though we’re buying top quality ingredients.
Fresh Food All Day
We serve a full menu at lunch and dinner – hot fresh food available throughout the day. Starting with eggs and fresh sourdough bread for breakfast, accompanied by quality Union Hand-roasted coffee made by our barista-trained team, and a range of sandwiches and light hot dishes whenever you need them.
We think children should have the opportunity to eat food that’s as good as yours, and our chefs are happy to make smaller portions or simplified versions of anything on our menu. We do have also a children’s menu available.
We have well-kept real ales on tap, both local, from Tring and Redemption, and Greene King IPA, as well as lagers including Beck’s, Estrella, Peroni, Asahi and Meantime London lager.
We are serious about our spirits too. Tanqueray London Dry Gin and Ketel One Vodka are our current favourites for pouring. Or try the range of premium gins, vodkas and aperitifs from our bar. Enjoy a large Grand Gin with plenty of ice, fruit, juniper berries and a choice of premium tonic water. We also make a great selection of classic cocktails.
Our wine is chosen by Jo Eames, co-owner of Peach, from three multi award-winning suppliers, Tanner’s of Shrewsbury, Liberty Wines & Boutinot. Each has its own specialities, allowing us to pack our list with a great range of top quality and interesting wines. Let us help you choose something delicious to match your mood or your food.
HOORAY FOR AUTUMN
Autumn brings us wonderful things - berries and mushrooms, apples and pears, game, pies and hearty slow braises. We always serve the good stuff because it’s what we want to eat ourselves.
