Earl who went to war with Tripe Advisor!

After 40 years of making and selling pies, the Earl of Bradford enjoys throwing a few, too.

And right now, Britain’s poshest restaurateur is cheerfully chucking them — by the plateful — at the multi-billion pound internet giant which, he believes, is guilty of a monstrous injustice against his profession.

Great review from Hong Kong!

We were thrilled to receive this message from Hong Kong!

“Dear Yew Tree,

“I was recently in my local pub in Hong Kong. I got chatting to a couple who lived in my home town of Maidstone. We talked about various things and got onto the pub scene in the area. They said they had visited the Yew Tree many times since your re-opening. And had in fact broken a long family tradition of having Christmas lunch out rather than at home.

“They said their whole family had Christmas lunch at the Yew Tree, and said it was excellent so much so that they have already booked for 2017. I was really pleased to hear that a great local pub was doing so well, and definitely plan to visit during my next trip back to the UK. So you should be proud that The Yew Tree is known as far a field as Hong Kong.”

Raising a glass to 10 of the best UK pub signs

The axiom says art is everywhere and nowhere is that more true than in the humble pub sign.

Since the 12th century, inns and pubs have been given names; and, to help out a mainly illiterate population, painted signs with bold images and bright colours to make them easily identifiable and welcoming.
