Gastro Pub in Warwickshire - The Almanack



Peach is a collection of really great pubs, mainly in market towns in the heart of England. The Almanack is a modern British gastropub in the centre of Kenilworth, filled to the rafters with atmosphere. As a quality gastropub, we serve great ingredients and fresh, honest food in relaxed, welcoming surroundings, always with a kind word and a sense of fun. Today we have twenty two pubs in lovely towns and villages, and an undimmed devotion to Making life Peachy. We have always been passionate about giving back and as we’ve developed and grown over the years, our ability and motivation to make the world a little better, a little peachier, has grown with us. The Bigger Peach shows our efforts to improve communities, equality in the workplace, and the future sustainability of our world. Our achievements were recognised in 2022, when we won Best Sustainable Pub Company at the Publican Awards, and we’re also three star accredited by the Sustainable Restaurant Association. 

Soak up the sun and atmosphere whilst enjoying a bite to eat, a cocktail, or a glass of award-winning wine from our drinks list. We serve food all day and children are welcome to enjoy smaller portions of any of our dishes, or ask to see our children’s menu. We take huge pride in serving the best ingredients we can find, from ethical producers, freshly prepared by our chefs. We’re dog friendly in our bar and outdoor areas, bring your furry friend and stop by soon. On our bar you’ll find a great range of spirits, beers and softs, so whether you pop in for a drink, a business lunch or a special dinner, we promise you a friendly welcome. Find us here.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Hollie & The Almanack Team


Hollie grew up in Cheltenham, with aspirations of becoming a doctor. She started her studies in biomedical science at Cardiff University, but after working in hospitality during term breaks, it soon became clear where her real passion lay.

She took the reigns of her first pub at just 21, embarking on a Management Development Programme and working hard, running a successful wet-led pub. Wanting to move into a more food-driven role, she moved across to Peach in December 2017, and was promoted to General Manager of The Star & Garter in September 2019. After three successful years of leading our sister pub, we’re very excited to have Hollie as General Manager of The Almanack. 

Growing up, she had the privilege of travelling to many great places, and her travels span Malaysia, Australia, Turkey and Italy to name just a few. She loves bringing her adventures to the specials board in the pub, giving guests the joy of trying new food they may not have tried before. Apart from taking her days off to relax and visit family in Cheltenham, she also enjoys spending time with friends, often with a glass of red wine. Hollie loves working with people, and enjoys coaching her team. Regulars will always be met with a friendly smile. 

Jamie McGowan, Pod Director

Footballer turned foodie, Jamie started his career at 21 and has since worked across the spectrum of hospitality from bars, to pubs, and restaurants. Having been responsible for a Market Hall and events venue with 4 kitchens, a cafe, a bar, a barbers, and vintage clothing store, it’s safe to say Jamie has expert knowledge in providing a quality experience.

Plymouth born, Jamie spent a few years living abroad in Spain and South Africa with his family, before returning to England and eventually Nottingham. Of all the countries Jamie has visited, Naples in Italy is the foodie apple of Jamie’s eye at the moment. With his love of Italian food, Neapolitan style pizza, and the Italian way of letting the quality of the ingredients do the talking. Living in Nottingham means Jamie has been lucky enough to eat at Alex Bond’s Alchemilla restaurant, where he was inspired by both the superb experience and Alex Bond’s agility through lockdown, pivoting to home delivery and then opening Mollis fried chicken restaurant. (Imagine that…Michelin star fried chicken!).

If you see Jamie around the pub be sure to say hi, plus if you buy him a pint of ale he’ll even recount the time he scored a goal at the Nou Camp! Something he definitely, definitely has never mentioned…
