The Anne of Cleves in Melton Mowbray is a characterful town-centre pub that sits next to St Mary’s Church. It dates back to at least the 16th century and was included by Henry VIII as part of the settlement to Anne of Cleves.

Today it is run by Mat and Beck Burrows. Not content with sourcing ingredients from local businesses such as Harker’s Farm Shop, Leeson’s Butchers of Oakham and The Melton Cheeseboard, the couple have set up a smallholding in Leicestershire. There, they keep sheep, lambs and hens. The resulting eggs and lamb appear on the menu. Mat and Beck have also planted a kitchen-garden at The Anne of Cleves, where they grow vegetables and herbs.

“We want to know where our food comes from,” says Beck. “So local sourcing is important to us. We want to know who makes our ingredients, talk to them, and support them.”

The Anne of Cleves’ cooking benefits a great deal from their local approach. It’s a fantastic pub for a pint, glass of wine, or a hearty meal.
