Chris Bishopp, the head chef, and his team have an unusual approach to pub food… they cook it! The ice cream is home made, the meringues are home made, the soup is home made, the sauces are home made. So where you see "Autumn Plum Chutney ", it set out in the kitchen as autumn plums! This means we know what gone into our dishes (along with love care and attention) so you know what's in your food. Chris has a love of doing simple things well and spending time finding the right balance of ingredients on the plate.

Where possible we use local and seasonal ingredients from local suppliers (although we admit there are not too many lobsters in Bedfordshire!).

Seafood has been at the heart of the Knife and Cleaver for many years, and will continue to be so. We have spent time finding a supplier who can provide the freshest of fish and we will always use the seasons to ensure your seafood is in its prime and from sustainable sources…ever wondered how some places (no pun intended) can have the same fish on all year round and call it fresh?? So we have an ever changing fish menu based on what's best in the market that day.
