Gastro Pub in Warwickshire -The Star & Garter


Peach is a collection of really great pubs, mainly in market towns in the heart of England. The Star & Garter is just a few moments away from beautiful shopping streets of Leamington Spa and only a short distance from the glorious town of Warwick. 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 one 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 atmosphere and beautiful balcony views 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!

Sian & the team

Sian Brennan, General Manager

Sian hails from a lovely town called Kinsale in Co. Cork Ireland. Bursting with beautiful pubs and restaurants, also known as one of the Gourmet Food Capitals of Ireland. Understandably, this is where her love affair for hosting, good food and having a great time came from.

At 15 Sian began working in one of the local restaurants in Kinsale, she then went on to work in Jacobs on the Mall in Cork City. Jacobs is where she really learnt about food, wine and great service. It is now one of her most cherished memories of hospitality.

But the true highlight of her career has been working and progressing throughout Peach. What started out as a couple of hours at The Star to get out of the house after having her son Finn, has now turned into her leading the team here. We’re so proud of Sian and what she has achieved during her time here.

Coming from a family of keen foodies, Sian learnt most of her cooking skills from her Mum, known for being good at cooking the classics, like her ‘unreal’ Lasagne and Fish Pie. Sian’s dad is more of a baker, never having a bought loaf of bread, as they count on him to always have a fresh loaf on the go! 

A lover of fashion and shopping, on her days off you’ll find Sian searching for the next thing in fashion. That, or daydreaming of being cast in Chicago in the West End…

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…
