Our kitchen is made up of the best creative culinary minds in the country, offering excellence in every dish.

Chef Director

Mike Bullard

Mike has won multiple awards and has gained recognition in the industry due to overnight improvements to the food and offerings at West Bromwich Albion.

He then took himself to complete Stages in New York at Le Bernadin (3 Michelin Star), Per Se (3 Michelin Star), and The Breslin (1 Michelin Star).

When he came back from New York he became a private chef & consultant, before creating The Butchers Social.

What started life in Harborne as a one-night pop up turned into 9-month incubation. The Butchers Social was then cemented in Henley In Arden, which became a huge success for over four years.

With plans to continue growing, The Butchers Social purchased The Forest Hotel in 2020, marking a brand-new chapter.

The Butchers Social food is seasonal, bold in flavour and modern British with a little nod to the classics. Good food, cooked properly in an environment that makes you feel completely comfortable.

Head Chef

Dan Androne

Dan grew up in a farm environment where the love and respect for food and animals became one of the most important pillars to his decision in becoming a chef. The education that followed always related to this, and once he had finished his studies, he started his first job in the kitchen.

His dedication and hard-working attitude meant Dan was Mike’s first choice to join The Butchers Social team, marking a turning point in Dan’s life.

We pride ourselves on sourcing the best seasonal ingredients, using the best of British where we can.

We use local producers as best as we can. Our Eggs are from Chadwick Farm, our milk is from Earlswood, Beef, Pork and Lamb from Dunwood Farm, Staffordshire. We even get our honey from Maggy, who lives just 5 miles away.

We change our a la carte menu each month, which gives us the chance to stay seasonal and keep the menu fresh for our customers.



We’re proud to work with a range of high-quality and luxurious brands to ensure we always provide the best experiences to our customers.
