We are looking for an enthusiastic, easy going, part time booker to join the team here at Eastbrook Farm, to help manage the books for our glorious pub, The Royal Oak and our new restaurant in Swindon, Helen Browning's Chop House. This is a new role and the successful candidate will work alongside our finance director and other members of the team to ensure accurate records are maintained for both establishments. You will require:
Our very own Helen Browning's Organic Hot Dog has won Best Innovative Sausage in the British Sausage Week Awards! We beat stiff competition from 500 butchers and retailers across the country and were presented with the gong by rugby legend Phil Vickery today at London’s prestigious Butchers Hall.
Another gold star for the food here – a bit incestuous perhaps, but we always declare a conflict of interest. On this occasion, the Soil Association has awarded The Royal Oak a gold star under its Cateringmark scheme, one of only four pubs in the country to be recognised for sticking to its principles: Organic, local, seasonal.
And paying people on time, and being good eggs with a sense of humour.
In case you missed Helen on Newsnight – and have not had your fill of the horsegate affair – you can view again by clicking on the 'Read more' button below. Do you agree/disagree with her/don’t care… she argued that horse meat (or camel meat, or any protein) might be used – no matter what the regs say – if people, starting with the supermarkets, refuse to pay for food to be produced and manufactured properly. And if you don’t trust the burgers, or your purse is stretched, eat less meat – but quality meat. Bold for a livestock farmer…
We are proud to say we have now become a member of the Soil Association’s ‘Food for Life’ catering mark supplier scheme that provides assurance to caterers on food and drink issues such as health, animal welfare and the environment.

food for £10 per head
Despite the pretty appalling weather this summer, there’s still an abundance in this village, this farm, and local areas people supply us from – an abundance others can only dream of. So let’s share it out a bit, at very reasonable prices, we thought. On September 26, from 7.00pm.
