If you’re a Head Chef who wants to Make Life Peachy for your team, guests and suppliers, then we’d love to hear from you.


Peach began in 2002 when we opened The Rose & Crown in Warwick, believing every town deserves a great pub. Well-kept beer, a quality steak cooked by a proper chef and a glass of decent wine is a recipe for happiness, especially when served with a kind word and a sense of fun.

Since then we have added pubs ancient and modern, neighbourhood locals and country destinations, simple bedrooms and a chic boutique hotel, cocktails, grand gins and ever-improving coffee.

Today we have twenty pubs in lovely towns and villages – and an undimmed devotion to making life Peachy.
