April 17, 2019

Easter – the story goes – marks the day that Jesus rose from the dead. It’s one of his greatest miracles (although turning water into wine wasn’t a bad effort), but today Easter has morphed into a more general celebration of family, friendship, love and – of course – food.

At Butcombe, we’ve always believed that life is better when spent in the company of those you love. So, to celebrate Easter, we’ve put together a range of events across eight of our very finest pubs to keep you and yours happy and in the Easter spirit.

But what can you look forward to over the Easter weekend? Let’s take a look.

The Cottage Inn

One of Bristol’s best-located pubs, The Cottage, is rolling out the red carpet for Easter with:

• Freshly baked cakes and muffins on sale
• Homemade chocolate truffles, Easter eggs and fudge
• Easter specials on the menu

The Royal Oak

Prestbury’s beloved Royal Oak pub boasts a dog-friendly bar, beautiful beer garden and much more, but on Easter weekend, it’s dedicating itself to Easter celebrations, including:

• Special dessert options, including Simnel cake
• Easter menu specials
• Outdoor BBQ
• Special ‘carrot-tini’ drinks

The Pelican

The Pelly, as it’s affectionately known to locals in Bristol’s Chew Magna is a light, beautiful pub with a truly outstanding dinner menu. This Easter, it’ll boast:

• Easter menu specials
• A special Sunday roast sharing menu, ideal for families

The Lime Kiln

A traditional, 17th century free house situated in Knole, Somerset – the Lime Kiln has long been a part of the community. With a pleasingly cosy interior, a gorgeous outside seating area and dog-friendliness throughout, it’s a great place to enjoy Easter. Here’s what’s going on:

The Ostrich

The Ostrich, located at the edge of Redcliffe in the heart of Bristol has re-opened just in time for Easter, following its make-over. Where better to spend the long Bank Holiday weekend that in Bristol’s largest pub garden and food from the new harbourside airstream.

Of course, these are just a handful of the special events going on across the Butcombe family of pubs, with further events across the Butcombe family of pubs this Easter weekend. So, why not join us for a fun-filled, family-friendly time!
