LOVERS of food and drink gathered to celebrate as Newark MP Patrick Mercer OBE officially opened the Pheasantry Brewery and Visitor Centre at East Markham.
Mark and Mary Easterbrook have launched the Pheasantry Brewery, together with a restaurant cafe bar, in renovated barns on their farm.
The brewery and restaurant recently received a glowing five star review from the Worksop and Dinnington Guardian.
Mark Easterbrook said: “We were delighted that Patrick was able to officially open the Brewery, recognising the importance of rural businesses like ours to the local economy.”
He continued: “We have used local suppliers where possible, including ABUK at Misterton for the brewing equipment, and our architect, Guy Taylor Associates of Newark.”
Mark added: “We have found records showing that the farm had a brewery in the late 17th century, so we are proud to be restoring the tradition of brewing to the farm.”
