Shropshire pub delights locals

A former Shropshire restaurant has been returned to its former glory as a traditional British locals county pub by new landlords.

Kevin and Sue Geyton say they are delighted to have given the Boyne Arms a revamp in time for one of Britain’s best ever summers. They plan to celebrate the pub’s improvements by staging events to commemorate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and forthcoming Summer celebrations.

Landlord-chef  Kevin Geyton and landlady Sue Geyton said they had restored the pub to the heart of the community by offering honest pub food, great local ales and community events. Mr Geyton said: “We saw the Boyne Arms on the market last year and thought it was a beautiful pub, and a wonderful location. “At the time we were running a pub in Herefordshire, but had heard about the Boyne. We could not wait to see it. “The whole family fell in love with the location, with the rolling Shropshire Hills viewable from all windows – with the Brown Clee at the front, and the beautiful Burwarton Estate out the rear, not to mention the extensive gardens. It was our dream pub, so we pretty much snapped their hand off.”

Chef Kevin had previously worked for a number of food companies and had also worked with high quality produce, including fish, cheese and even meats. He said: “Our method is pretty simple. We just source good quality ingredients from great suppliers, including the locals who love to provide their produce and catches, including rabbits, fresh eggs, and even deer when they are in seasons. “We are currently serving fresh trout from the Burwarton estate, which we smoke ourselves, in sweet wood chippings – it really is something special. “We don’t need celebrity chefs to promote our restaurant – we get our encouragement from our locals farmers, and those who travel from far and wide for our beautiful location, gardens, walks and of course our food”

Sue Geyton added that the Burwarton Arms was keen to be part of the community and had recently staged a charity event that had raised £5,000 for good causes. She said: “ We are all so happy here and the locals have been so nice to us. Burwarton is a beautiful village.”
