'WILD' PARTIES AT THE KENNY

'WILD' PARTIES AT THE KENNY

Last month we teamed up with the lovely Malcom from Go Foraging to host a sophisticated (and gin-filled) hen do. Making great use of our Mustard Room we set up the bar with foraged ingredients Malcolm sourced locally, alongside gin bases which the girls had great fun infusing and mixing themselves their 'perfect' drink. We put together an afternoon tea menu to complement the gin tasting, and started off the day with a bang with some lush English Fizz from Chapel Down. A great day had by all (and even a few scones left for the team to scoff afterwards).

Top 50 Gastropub Awards

Top 50 Gastropub Awards

So last week we got invited (alongside Josh + Holly Eggleton from the Pony + Trap) down to Hermitage Road in Hitchen for this years Top 50 Gastropub Awards. The last time the Kenny made it on to the list was 2014 where they reached 39th position, so we were absolutely thrilled to be nominated and to have made it on to the list. We were even more excited when they announced us at number 24!! Wow, so so pleased!!

Josh Eggleton, Guy Newell & families partner to buy The Kensington Arms

Popular Redland pub The Kensington Arms has been taken over by Josh Eggleton and Guy Newell, former managing director of Butcombe Brewery, and their families. One of Bristol’s best-known gastropubs, the Kensington Arms, known locally as ‘The Kenny’, will now benefit from Guy’s brewery expertise and the influence of Michelin-starred chef Josh Eggleton, who earned his star at The Pony and Trap in Chew Magna.
