  • Fresh menu with focus on fish, seafood and quality meats
  • Extensive wine list and drink options to continue at heart of offering


Leigh and Cathy Parry are delighted to announce the purchase of The Winery Bar and Restaurant in Burton on Trent. Located in one of the oldest buildings in the town (on the site of the historic 13th century Burton Abbey), this iconic and award-winning restaurant is set in stunning grounds overlooking the river Trent.


Leigh and Cathy are no strangers to The Winery, having worked there during its most successful period several years ago when Leigh was Head Chef and Cathy ran the front of house. More recently they worked in similar roles at Burton Albion Football Club, but it was always on their radar to run their own restaurant and jumped at the chance to purchase The Winery when the opportunity arose.


Commenting on this exciting new project, Leigh said: “Cathy and I ran a successful fish and seafood restaurant in Cheshire before moving to The Winery about 10 years ago. We Love this town and area, and it was always an ambition of ours to run our own restaurant and create a menu based around fish, seafood and quality meats.”


Cathy added: “The addition of an Oyster Bar gives us a unique selling point and we believe a great opportunity to bring quality produce to our existing and new customers. The new menu is already in place and receiving rave reviews from customers. Feedback so far has been excellent, and we are very excited about the future.”
