Like jewels sparkling in the rich green tapestry of England's heartland, these pubs shine as centres of hospitality, good eating and drinking.
All are inextricably linked to local history, predominantly the battles between Cromwell's Parliamentarians and the Royalists of King Charles. And sitting at the heart of Dunchurch, the 'Gunpowder Plot' village, The Dun Cow is one of those ancient British pubs whose history and character are in every brick.

At Earlswood and Alvechurch you'll find two Red Lions, both offering 'roaring' fires, a feature of all our inns when the weather turns. They have served as the village meeting places for hundreds of years. And some like The Heron's Nest at Knowle are blessed by their location, in this case with the Grand Union Canal right outside providing a tranquil highway.
The rich cultural heritage of the area means there is always something of interest within a few miles. But there are contemporary attractions too, ranging from theatres in world class Stratford to vibrant city centres offering excellent shopping.
