About Peach Pubs

Peach offer a collection of great gastro pubs, mainly in market towns in the heart of England, that serve good-quality, fresh, honest food and drink in relaxed, welcoming surroundings.

Peach began in 2002 when restaurateur Lee Cash opened The Rose and Crown in Warwick, believing every town deserves a great pub.

Trained and mentored by Robin Sheppard and Raymond Blanc, he started Peach at the age of 27 with a clear conviction that people would embrace a pub that served quality food and drink at a sensible price in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

Based in North Aston in Oxfordshire, Peach today employ hundreds of people across 18 pubs ancient and modern. Each one is a well-loved ‘local’ to its regulars and hosts a wealth of fun events and special occasions.

Since 2002, the chain has added a chic boutique hotel, simple bedrooms, cocktails, grand gins and ever-improving coffee.

The firm strongly believes that the pubs should be run by their owners so that they’re part of the community. All partners are within two hours of the Bicester training and support hub, so they and their teams can be easily brought together.
