Born in Romford and brought up in Brentwood, our early inspiration and memories stem from beautiful Essex.
It was where we used to fish and scrump (the art of subtly swiping fruit from an allotment or an overhanging tree in someone’s garden). So this part of the world means everything to us – a place responsible for everything that has resulted since.
“We were born and raised in Essex, so when there was the opportunity of running and pub and restaurant in this part of the world, the answer was obvious. It’s one of the most exciting projects we’ve ever taken on.” Chris Galvin
