The Eltisley can be found nestled beside the tranquil village green in beautiful Eltisley. Stop by after exploring the nearby Eltisley woods and numerous picturesque local walks – smiling staff welcome dogs in the bar area so there’s no need to leave your canine companion at home.
Independent, local company Feast & Frolic have expertly reinvented this long-standing pub. Inside, the venue is bright and airy, tastefully fusing modern design with vintage charm, and with a dining location perfect for every occasion. Head to the Taproom for real ale and tapas, or feast with friends in the cosy Parlour. The Library room is perfect for private dining, while the Grand Barn is a whimsical yet opulent events space – perfect for weddings. For al fresco dining, look to the terrace and gardens. From summer 2017, the gardens will also be home to eight barn-style bedrooms.
In its shiny new guise, The Eltisley has been remodelled into a fresh, dapper and debonair food and drink establishment, which offers a sumptuous menu that presents an original take on classic grill-style dining. Designed by director and chef-patron Craig Scott, and head chef Rob Balchin, the menu combines traditional cooking techniques with exciting modern ﬂavours. They promise theatrical twists and the menu is also gluten-free. You might start with the sticky beef rib. Pleasantly light for a beef dish, the meat is packed full of ﬂavour and falls off the bone. The accompanying pickled salad adds a delicious sharpness that cuts through the sweet sauce. For your main course, try the tronchon of halibut with grilled baby gem salad – the fresh and vibrant ﬂavours complement each other perfectly. The Eltisley also offers deliciously succulent steaks, and parties of ten or more can pre-order the likes of whole lobster, suckling pig and côte de boeuf. To ﬁnish your meal on a sweet note, opt for the indulgent toasted marshmallow skewer with chocolate sauce and summer berries, or perhaps the dark chocolate and cherry torte with Cointreau sauce.
To accompany your meal, there’s a wide range of classic cocktails, alongside signature options that are unique to The Eltisley. The impressive list of world wines provides a tipple to accompany every dish, while the bar has a selection of real ales and fruit ciders on tap, including a delightful rhubarb ﬂavour.
