We wrote recently about the pride we take in sourcing our ingredients locally in this blog about Titsey beef, and how proud we are that many of the items on our menu come from only a short distance of the farmhouse. In fact, to give just one example, our beef comes from right here on the Titsey Estate, which covers some 1,800 acres of farm and woodland in gorgeous rural Surrey, so literally zero food miles.
Well, now we are delighted to announce that visitors to our 16th century pub can look forward to a new range of artisan beers brewed here on site in a converted cellar. Launched this summer, the Titsey Brewing Co is producing three delicious ales inspired by the pub’s stunning rural setting: Sheep’s Tale, a light bitter cask ale; Cow Tipper, a craft ale; and Gower Wolf, a dark bitter cask ale. The new range will complement our existing selection of beers on offer from the local Westerham and Pilgrim breweries as well as the range of fine wines hand-picked by Olivers of Copthorne.
Having spent many weeks perfecting the taste (all in the name of research, of course…), we can testify that our flavoursome brews are absolutely delicious. We have also had a really enthusiastic response from customers who love the idea of enjoying a beer fresh from our own micro-brewery.
Of course, even if you’re not a beer-lover, there is so much to enjoy here at our award-winning hostelry. A warm welcome awaits all our visitors with imaginative, varied and seasonal menus using the best fresh ingredients; the lovely historic setting of the pub itself; and then there’s our stunning surroundings. Located in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Botley Hill Farmhouse is known for its breathtaking views from its vantage point at the highest point of the North Downs. In fact, our sunsets here are famous – perfect for those Instagram snaps!
Back on the subject of our “localness”, we source lamb and venison from the Titsey Estate, eggs from a local farmer, and cheese from Sussex. You’ll even find herbs grown in our own garden here at the pub! So for a true taste of Surrey, both food and drink, come down and pay us a visit.
