Easter: The pubs to book now

As Easter is just a hop, skip and a step away, we’ve taken a look at some fantastic venues for Easter Sunday lunch or just to spend some time in over the long weekend.

The Greene Oak, Windsor

The Greene Oak is a charming neighbourhood pub situated in in the heart of Oakley Green near Windsor in Berkshire. As the first venture in Brucan pubs’ portfolio, The Greene Oak offers the ideal spot for a cosy mid-week meal, Friday night drinks or the perfect spot to nestle in for your Sunday lunch this Easter weekend.

Showcasing outstanding suppliers and produce, owners James Lyon Shaw and Jamie Dobbin offer up a market-fresh daily changing menu championing great quality food, simply prepared. Their Easter lunch dishes will include wild garlic and nettle soup, Tamworth pork leg as well as their infamous Roast sirloin beef accompanied with all the trimmings.


The Coach Makers Arms, Marylebone

A lively and vibrant pub offering, The Coach Makers Arms is located moments away from Bond Street station and renowned for serving the one of the best Sunday roasts in Marylebone. Recently refurbished, the venue spreads over three floors. The buzzy ground floor pub is a great destination for Sunday feasting, accompanied by the fact it has a constantly changing range of craft beers it’s a standout candidate for your Easter weekend. The first floor is a little quieter, ideal if you are looking for private dining and can seat parties of up to 35, while tucked away in the basement there is a secret cocktail Bar, The 72 Clubhouse for when your daytime lunch lasts a little longer than expected (fear not, it’s a bank holiday weekend after all).


Victoria, Oxshott

If you are looking for a more formal pub, The Victoria pub in Oxshott, Surrey is where you want to book. Featuring freshly-cooked dishes, the menu consists of French classics alongside British pub favourites with a focus on seasonal ingredients. Chef director Matt Larcombe was once head chef at The Crown at Bray, and met manager Simon King when they both worked for Heston Blumenthal and opened The Victoria in August last year. House favourites include their Beer battered oysters and Beef Wellington, which Grace Dent described as “the finest beef wellington I will eat in this lifetime”. 


The Wheatsheaf

Located in the centre of Borough Market, The Wheatsheaf is a lively pub offering Modern British dishes served from a VW campervan on their terrace. Their drinks offering is something to behold; behind the bar you’ll find an excellent range of local and continental craft beer and a wine list that has something for everyone. With a fully heated and covered beer garden, it’s the perfect establishment to visit this easter weekend (no matter the weather). And if you needed one more reason to visit, they have a pizza oven in their garden offering a variety of eccentric toppings you won’t be able to refuse.
