Quite enough of that work nonsense for one day. TO THE PUB! https://t.co/DwqlF0WmlB
Yesterday around 5pm
Welcome to our family album, the place where we keep all sorts of things which are important to us which we'd like to show off just a little bit. You can find out what we've been talking about in Bar Banter, connect with us via all sorts of social media channels, watch some Geronimo TV and see what lovely things people have been writing about us lately.
If that wasn't enough you can meet some of the folks we work with to make the world of Geronimo such a great place as well as seeing what chances there are to join our world.
Come on in and have a look around!
We're a pretty interesting bunch here at Geronimo (even if we do say so ourselves) so there's always a lively conversation or three going on somewhere. Keep up with all the banter right here.
The Chefs and their teams still write their own menus. Like the look of the pub they must appeal to the quirks of those in the neighborhood. There’s always a balance of classic pub dishes, done beautifully and more expressive dishes to appeal to those in a delicious mood.
British is always best, food miles and provenance are more important than organic. And working with the Sustainable Restaurant Association we are always trying to impact the whole food chain, not just the very end of it…..the food on your plate
Chase Vodka is made in Herefordshire, not a county well known for its vodka but Will Chase, the founder, changed that. In 2004, during a trip to the US he came across a small distillery making potato vodka and decided that might be an interesting avenue to explore on his potato farm. We wholly support what Will is doing and we love his spirits!
Founded in Cornwall in 1994, just a year before ourselves, we have grown up together! Sharps have been suppliers and friends for the best part of 20 years. Their flagship beer, “Doom Bar” is a huge hit with our regulars – we drink it here and we drink it after surfing the north Cornwall beaches... Gnarly.
Sipsmith have taken the gin world by storm in the last few years and rightfully so. They have created a range of handcrafted, versatile spirits; from their London Dry Gin which makes a mean G&T, to a lovely Sloe Gin, perfect for Autumn drinking – a quick slurp after a cold muddy walk will set you right again! We’ve been drinking their gin since they first introduced us to Prudence (behind Sam, Jarred and Fairfax in the photo!)
Located just outside Pulborough in West Sussex Nutbourne Nursery are a modest bunch who we want to shout about. Situated on but an acre of land, the Griffith family have been growing tomatoes here since 1979. During the season the crop is picked and packed on a daily basis meaning that this wonderful produce will be on your plate just 24 hours after being on a vine!
We looked high and low to find a specialist cheese producer. Plumpton College in East Sussex stood out from the crowd, as it provides a wide range of land based courses in association with local schools and the University of Brighton, as well as simply delicious artisan cheeses.
A typical day in the life of our fish goes something like this; Ed Gravestock from Skipper’s Catch buys our fish fresh from Ian Taylor the fisherman, straight off the boat. It is then filleted by champions in fishmongery (yes really!) down at their base in Poole. They liaise with our chefs and the fish is packed and ready to go. This is followed by an express delivery to London overnight, and delivered by 8am the next morning, making the customers plate that day.
Aspall has been making cyder at Aspall Hall in Suffolk since the mid 18th century. The owners of the estate, the Chevalliers, were originally from Jersey and brought with them apple trees from the island. From these small beginnings Aspall grew, and in 1946 they were one of the founding members of the Soil Association. This year we celebrate 10 years of working with them. Here’s to many more, and to Henry’s sideburns.. they are stupendous...
SAVE HOURS in every working day by hanging the clock upside down at 10.05am. That way, it's 4.35pm and only 25 minutes to home time.
Geronimo Inns may have started with just one pub in 1995 but it has grown into a group of damn fine places to eat and drink by sticking to the principals The Chelsea Ram was founded on.
Pubs are about people. People are at the heart of what we do and a pub should be at the heart of a community, a place to go to relax, to socialise and to enjoy yourself.
