The Butcher & Beast

The Butcher and Beast has been a Batemans’ Pub for over 50 years and is the only pub in the country with that name. We are truly unique. There are photos around the pub of the village and pub over the years and also a dog wall of all the lovely dogs that have been regulars over the years to the pub.

Your Hosts

Mal and Diane Gray have been running the Butcher and Beast since 2009 but have been working with Batemans’ Brewery in Wainfleet for since 1990. This is their 3rd pub with the same brewery and are now the longest serving couple with Batemans. Mal says when they were looking at other breweries to work with they liked the ethos of Batemans where, “we never felt we were just another number, in fact felt very much a part of the Batemans’ family.”

Our Story

Mal runs the front of house and is very passionate about the beer and keeps it in an excellent condition, you can always find him behind the bar (unless he’s doing some jobs for Diane!). Always good for a chat about beer or to pass the time away. We stock a wide and diverse selection of spirts, so if you’re not sure of what you fancy then just talk to Mal or one of the team who will be more than happy to help you choose.

The Butcher and Beast has now been in the Camera Good Beer Guide since 2010 and the Good Pub Guide since 2012. Diane runs the kitchen and with the help of her team produce some good honest meals. We like to try and cater for most people and we are known for our steaks (being called the Butcher and Beast and all). We also like to source all our ingredients locally wherever possible.

Our Staff

Over the years we have and still do have great staff, some have only been with us a short while, while others have been with us since the beginning, it is a privilege to be part of their lives. To see the young ones grow into fantastic young adults, whether they are here while going to uni, second job to buy a house, or for what every reason they are always fun to be around. We couldn’t have made the Butchers what it is today without the staff we have had, so we would both like to say a massive thank you to you all xx
