THE ENGLEFIELD ESTATE: GAME SUPPLIERS

THE ENGLEFIELD ESTATE: GAME SUPPLIERS

We ensure all our game is sourced from the very best suppliers following the very best practices. We serve a variety of game when in season and this includes venison. A lot of our venison comes from the Englefield Estate in Berkshire.

We are passionate about using the very best, sustainable produce at Cubitt House and also want to learn as much as we can about the food we use so our chefs can utilise this knowledge to bring the very best food to our guests. With this in mind we took a team of chefs from across Cubitt House to visit the Englefield Estate to learn all about their deer herd and venison.

As was explained by David, Head Gamekeeper at Englefield, they have a 300-400 strong deer herd that are free to roam around an extensive acreage. David also explained that deer are probably one of the most sustainable meat products we have in the United Kingdom because they are native to our shores. To ensure all our deer live well and continue to thrive across the countryside  some limited intervention is required to keep herd numbers at a manageable level, providing us with our delicious venison.

At the Englefield Estate, they take a long-term view and strive to combine good stewardship of the Estate’s landscape and wildlife habitats with successful business. The Game Department is responsible for managing game and conservation at Englefield. This work involves the careful management of an important grey partridge conservation project. Once a flourishing gamebird across the UK, the combination of predators, fewer gamekeepers and changes in farming practice – primarily the removal of hedges and the introduction of herbicides – caused numbers to decline rapidly.

From just 2 breeding pairs in 2009 (a bird on the RSPB’s red list) after a programme of habitat improvement and creation designed to provide nesting, brood rearing and winter cover there are now estimated to be 82 breeding pairs on the Englefield Estate. A great example of great countryside stewardship in action.

For the main bar area at The Orange, @georgie_pearman chose the colour ‘Clove’ created by interior designer Edward Bulmer. A spicy warm beige packed full of natural pigments to heat it up and really wrap the colour around the space.
This complex and grounding neutral perfectly complements the convivial atmosphere of the pub’s central space.

This month's #DishWithTish is a delicious Summer salad of roasted peach, pistachio, mint, dill, watercress and salted sheep’s cheese.

Inspired by the Eastern Mediterranean with contrasting flavours and textures. Roasting peaches this way intensifies their natural sweetness and flavour (it’s also good with ice-cream!)

Chef Director, @ben.tish says - ‘I like to layer this on a platter as opposed to a bowl for a visually beautiful presentation- a centrepiece even. Excellent with grilled pork or lamb'
