The Marlborough Tavern confirmed in Pub in the Park line up
The head honchos at The Marlborough Tavern have some very exciting news to share as the festival season gears up for full-on frenzy: the pub will be one of the key participants at the Pub in the Park festival this year, taking place from 21-23 June in Royal Victoria Park, Bath.
Created by 2-starred Michelin chef Tom Kerridge, Pub in the Park has become the UK’s fastest growing food and music festivals, playing host to the country’s most highly-acclaimed gastropubs and restaurants (for specific info, click on this link) to complement a spectacular live music line up.
“We’re thrilled to have been invited to be a part of this year’s Pub in the Park,” says Joe Cussens, Managing Director of the independent Bath Pub Company at the MT helm. “It’s going to be great to rub shoulders with some of the good and great in our industry. Being so close to Royal Victoria Park last year we had loads of people coming into the pub either before or after their session – we almost felt like the unofficial after show venue. This year, it’s nice to go one step further and be part of the official line up. It caps a great year for us at the Marlborough – the food and service has never been better, and it comes on the back of picking up the best gastropub Bath Life Award too!”
Liberty Hatton from the Pub in the Park events team adds: “We’re delighted to have The Marlborough Tavern joining us at Pub in the Park Bath – the pub is a fantastic addition to the line-up, being just a stone’s throw away from the park itself, and now bringing the taste of Bath to the festival! We wanted to get a good local representation involved this year and we chose the Marlborough Tavern after listening to locals’ feedback and advice on the best pubs in the surrounding area – the Marlborough was consistently top of the list. The Pub in the Park team ate there last year after a long day leading up to the event and were blown away by the delicious food – we knew back then that it had to be put on the list for 2019!”
The Marlborough Tavern’s Head Chef Jack Scarterfield and his team are currently planning their festival menu. “It’s fantastic that we’re included in the festival this year and i’m really looking forward to working alongside some of the industry’s finest chefs,” says Jack. “Pub in the Park is a great opportunity to showcase the wonderful local produce which I get to use on the Marlborough menus every day. My food is local, rustic and packed full of flavour… and I can’t wait to get stuck in!”
Neither can we, Jack – neither can we!
