The Yew Tree Inn, in the picturesque village of Bunbury. Offers traditional beers, fine wines, and quality home cooked food, in this beatiful village pub, which is the favourite among the locals and a great place to spend an afternoon or evening in a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. The building is a 19th century free house right in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.

Inside you will find open fires, old beams and a great big bar plus the odd twist or two that befits the quirkiness of this beautiful corner of Cheshire. There is a wonderful summer terrace for al fresco dining and events. At the bar you can find an eclectic range of spirits including an ever growing single malt collection, plus an extensive wine list and a cracking range of real ales.

The team of chefs change the menu every eight weeks to reflect seasonal changes and you also can find a daily changing specials board in the pub. They use local producers as possible with most of their beef, lamb, pork and seasonal vegetables coming from Bunbury Heath itself and the Broster family in fact, most recently they had freshly picked beetroot, carrots, lettuce, mint, spinach, new potatoes, free range eggs, whole Charollais lambs, great Hereford beef and Oxford Sandy & Black pork.

All their drinks have been painstakingly researched. Also you will find their house bitter, Stonehouse Brewery’s “Station Bitter”, joined by up to five guest ales from the length and breadth of the country. They usually have a selection of local ales to try, anything from a mild, to pale and hoppy, to IPA’s to good old English best bitters. They are now included in The Good Beer Guide, the best guide to use when looking for great beer.

They see thier wine list as a continuing evolution always trying new wines, varieties and ideas and when they discover wines they love, they will share the costumers. Their list currently has over 50 wines, from old school Bordeaux, Chablis & Sancerre to the new wine heartlands of Chile, Argentina, Mexico, etc. Thaey have 10 wines by the glass. They focus on value for money and affordability. They also have their monthly wine where they really can showcase something special with a price not necessarily to match. Their own Wine Club  enables to purchase wines from the pub wine list at special take home prices and they also offer mixed case deals.

The Urbina family have four generations under their helm as vineyard owners in Rioja. They own around 75 hectares, all in the heart of the renowned sub-region of Rioja Alta which is known to produce grapes with fine structure and elegance.

The vineyards, mostly planted to tempranillo, are located around the village of Cuzcurrita which is at the north-west point of Rioja and therefore at the limit of vine production. Here the climate is influenced by the cooler Atlantic weather systems which results in a longer, more gradual ripening period and grapes that tend to show freshness, structure and intensity. The magic of this area is that it makes wines that are amongst some of the longest lived in Rioja.

Everything about this bodega centres around ageing. After picking, the grapes are fermented slowly in stainless steel, then aged extensively in a mixture of American (75%) and French (25%) barrels. After ageing in oak, the wines are held in tank which retains a lift and freshness in the wines (rarely seen for this traditional style of Rioja).

Pedro Benito Urbina makes a range of wines, mostly red, right across the quality spectrum from crianza to gran reserva. He releases his wines when they are ready to drink and fully mature. They represent the essence of classic Rioja: stylistically they rest their quality on finesse, complexity and savoury flavours, rather than power.
