Read our review of The Yew Tree, Avon Dassett, Warwickshire

With new manager Jack McEntee at the helm, a 20-year-old female head chef Mimi Colyer and refurbished interiors, this delightful 19th century stone-built village pub has been given a new lease of life.

And it’s all set for reopening on April 12.

Taken over by the newly-formed Happy Wolf Pub Company in September 2020, you can expect a warm welcome and relaxed vibe with lots of new drinks options, a revamped cosy, open plan bar and restaurant as well as a new, fresh menu using local suppliers. The lovely revamped floral pub garden has outdoor seating, fairy lights, a sound system and its own updated ice-cream shack selling Frellies homemade ice cream local to the village, milkshakes, smoothies and paninis, along with draught larger and local Napton Lost Apple cider.

Plans for spring/summer 2021 include a new Great Big Outdoor Pub Garden Quiz and live music.

Mimi previously worked in Leicestershire as a Chef de Partie, and her second in command is Keaton Ward. Look out for their regularly updated mains specials board which also extends to waffle and cheesecakes of the week. The newly-launched Sunday Roast menu is also proving popular.

Located in a beautiful tiny village near Southam, midway between Banbury and Warwick, it’s in a conservation area at the foot of the beautiful Burton Dassett Hills Country Park and close to National Trust property Farnborough Hall. An extremely popular stopping point for walkers and cyclists on the edge of the Cotswolds.
