Mike North, The Nut Tree Inn

Mike and Imogen North warmly welcome you to The Nut Tree Inn. Celebrating 10 years in November 2016 since they opened their dream village pub in Murcott village, Oxfordshire.

Mike grew up in the area and he’d always harboured dreams of owning The Nut Tree. In November 2006 he made it a reality when he and his fiancee Imogen bought the pub.

The Nut Tree is a traditional village pub which serves great modern British food in the restaurant but is still somewhere you can stop and have a pint or relaxing drink at the end of a hard day’s work. Even our own Nut Tree ales. Within the 15th century thatched building you’ll find a mix of locals and visitors enjoying real ales, fine wines, excellent food and attentive service. Our bar food also serves our home-made fish and chips.

food at the nut treeWe are delighted to have been awarded a Michelin star for the ninth year running. More accreditations we are so proud of here.

We would like to congratulate Head Chef Mary North for getting married earlier this year. Our team were runners up in the Copa Jerez Sherry finals 2016. The eight finalists competed against each other in a live head-to head challenge, in early October, at the Restaurant Show. The esteemed panel of judges voted our team second, only to the Ritz Carlton in London! Well done team.

The Pipe and Glass

Stage at the famous Pipe and Glass in Beverley. Dating back to the 15th century, the Pipe and Glass Inn stands on the site of the original gatehouse to Dalton Park, still the residence of Lord Hotham.

James MackenzieJames Mackenzie took over The Pipe and Glass Inn in March 2006, and refurbished completely: the bar has kept a country pub feel, while the restaurant is warm, welcoming and airy, with a conservatory which looks out over the garden and has a spectacular long table for up to 28 people. Upstairs, the Hotham Room is available for private dining for up to 10 people, and has its own separate lounge and demonstration kitchen. There is also plenty of room for dining outside in warmer weather.

The Pipe and Glass Inn was awarded East Yorkshire’s first and only Michelin star in 2010,and has retained it ever since. Last year, it won the Pub and Bar Award in the Cateys, accolades voted for by industry insiders.

It is the Good Food Guide’s County Dining Pub of the Year 2014. In both 2013 and 2014, it was placed at number 4 in the Morning Advertiser/Budweiser Budvar Top 50 Gastropubs Awards, making it the highest placed pub in the north.
