Pub in the Park returns to Dunorlan Park on July 10-12, and organiser Tom Kerridge has unveiled some of the Michelin-starred and local chefs and restaurants signed up for the festival.

New this year joining Mr Kerridge’s Michelin-starred The Hand & Flowers and The Coach eateries, will be Marcus Wareing’s Tredwells,  Birmingham’s Michelin-starred Purnell’s, Bristol-based Roots, The Mariners Public House from Rock, Sabor from Mayfair, Paul Foster’s Salt, The Star and Garter in Leamington Spa, and the Michelin-starred The Olive Tree from Bath.

Local favourites The Small Holding, The Kentish Hare, The Compasses Inn, Tim Allen Flitch of Bacon, The Churchill Arms, The Star Inn and The Half Moon Inn, are also set to return for 2020.

Also returning this year will be the popular Café Spice Namaste and Michel Roux Jr.’s The Wigmore.

Mr Kerridge said at every event this year, which for 2020 includes two new locations – Chichester and Dulwich – there will be a celebration of ‘the very best food the country has to offer, combined with fantastic live music, chef demonstrations, top quality shopping and other festival fun.’

Last year’s Pub in the Park saw more than 15,000 foodie and music revellers descend on Dunorlan Park where Rick Astley, Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall, Will Young and Basement Jaxx entertained the crowds.

But the main event was the food, with more than 28,000 dishes on offer over the three-day festival, including dishes served up by the Tanner brothers and Sankey’s, who joined Mr Kerridge’s own The Hand and Flowers pub team.

Festival goers were able to indulge in a tipple, with a range of Champagne, cocktails and beer on offer and sport fanatics were well catered for with many enjoying the cricket on Sunday afternoon which was beamed live on to screens around the park.

Mr Kerridge promised Pub in the Park 2020 would be just as good.

He said: “Wow. Pub in the Park was an absolute blast. I’ve had a sneak peek at the line-up for 2020, and wow, it looks good – tasty food, more amazing chefs and awesome musicians all in your local park.”
