The One Elm is back on the ale trail at The Stratford Food Festival

The One Elm in Stratford is putting its best foot forward once again by getting back onto the Ale Trail to support great local brewers at this year’s Stratford Town Centre Food Festival.  purity

The popular town gastro pub has teamed up with the Purity Brewing Co. from down the road in Great Alne to serve up tasters of some of its fine locally brewed ales as well as inviting one of the Purity team to be on hand in the pub to tell visitors a bit about them.

“We love being part of the food and drink scene here in Stratford and never miss an opportunity to get out there and do what we do best – serve the good stuff,” says Mat Faulkner, general manager of The One Elm.  “In this case it’s beer, something close to our hearts, and we shall be proudly pouring some of the region’s best brews on the two day Ale Trail at the festival,” he says.

“We’re also extremely proud to have worked with Purity for many years – we serve a number of their brilliant beers in all our Warwickshire pubs including this one – and to support great local businesses like Purity’s.  We shall have several of their beers on the pumps and be welcoming Alex from the company who joins me behind the bar to pull some pints and chat to people about what makes their beer so good.”

The One Elm will also be serving good seasonal food fresh from its kitchen throughout the festival, which takes place in town between Friday 23rd and Sunday 25th September. Food will be available all day, every day, with the pub’s popular Bottomless Brunch on offer from 9am to 1pm on the Saturday as well as cracking roasts on the Sunday, the perfect way to round off a fabulous foodie weekend.

To sign up for the festival Ale Trail, simply go to the Stratforward website at or get them from the Stratforward site office on Waterside on Friday 23rd, Saturday 24th and Sunday, 25th September.  Tickets cost £5 and include a free commemorative Festival Ale Trail third of a pint glass along with a map of the Real Ale Trail with a list of beers and descriptions.
